Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Michael Bisping was dealt a setback recently when he was forced to withdraw from his bout against Tim Boetsch at UFC 149, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, on July 21, 2012, because of an injured knee.


"Yeah, left knee. Slightly torn meniscus. I had some loose bodies -- two rather large pieces of cartilage floating around inside. I had what they call, 'fraying of the knee' inside. It's general wear and tear. So they went in, repaired the meniscus, removed the loose bodies and cleaned up the knee, somewhat. That was last Wednesday. I'm still in a lot of pain, limping around a lot. But I'm hoping, within a few weeks, I'll be back in the gym, so I can fight ASAP."


He'd like that fight to be for the title, and he believes, if things go the way he thinks they will, that the man wearing the Middleweight Championship belt around his waist will be Chael Sonnen, the man who defeated Bisping by a narrow margin when the two squared off at UFC on Fox 2, in Chicago, Ill., on Jan. 28, 2012:


"I wanna fight ASAP. Obviously, it depends on the knee and how well it goes. But I'm gonna do everything in my power to ensure that I can train, ASAP, as I said. I'd love to fight on the first of September card. That may be too quick. I know Hector Lombard's now fighting Tim Boetsch. He's gonna replace me there. So they're busy. Chael Sonnen's fighting Anderson Silva. I think Chael wins that fight. At least I think. The first fight is gonna give him a lot of confidence. The way he fought, handily for four and a half rounds. I think he's gonna go in there with a lot of confidence and do the same thing, but not get submitted in the last round. After that, Chael's gonna need someone to challenge him, and I mean, who is there? Vitor Belfort's injured. I mean, who are the challengers? I was fighting Chael for the number one contender. Just because I narrowly lost that fight doesn't mean I go to the back of the pile. So I'm hoping to fight for the title. Hopefully, I'll get the knee correct, and then they're gonna need a challenger. I'm here, ready and waiting."

"Just because I narrowly lost that fight doesn't mean I go to the back of the pile" Well yeah, it kinda does... and it certainly doesn't mean you go to the front of the pile.

That H bomb did way more damage then I thought.It made him think Sonnen is the best fighter in the world and he is the second

I personally think that Bisping has to be close to a title shot. If Chael does pull off the win against Anderson I believe Bisping is closer to a shot then if Anderson beats Chael again.

Yeah, I think he also forgot the UFC signed Lombard, who will probably get the next title shot if he puts on an impressive performance against Boestch.

When is the last time Silva lost? If Sonnen wins I'd be willing to bet that Anderson gets the next title shot.

Unless he retires, Anderson Silva will get an immediate rematch vs anyone who takes his title.

Even if he did retire, Bisping coming off an injury is unlikely to be getting a title shot.

You know what? Spits has a great point......

After Chael (P)erfections defends HIS belt for a 4th time, why not give Mikey the next shot.

Chael - 2
England - 0

** it has the feel of a soccer score **

England is used to losing in soccer, so Mr. Joe Silva, make it happen!

If by some miracle Chael beats Anderson, and he doesn't get an immediate rematch, Bisping Vs Sonnen is by far the easiest sell.

The two most polarizing figures in the UFC today!

Makes sense to me wether Bisping deserves it or not.......


PS: Boetsch destroys Lombard and de-rails that hype train.

How about this. If Sonnen somehow beats Silva we have Sonnen fight the Weidman/Munoz winner and have Bisping fight Silva. Bisping should beat someone in the top 10 before he talks all this nonsense he keeps spewing out.

Let's see if Chael can pull off another longshot first then we'll test him to see how much he's been cheating.

I would think someone competing for the Middleweight UFC Championship would have to face and beat at least one of these fighters on his way to a title shot:
Munoz
Belfort
Okami
Stann
Belcher
Phalhares
Maia
Wouldn't you think so also?
He has faced three top UFC middleweights (Sonnen, Hendo, Silva), and has lost all three.
I just feel as though Bisping has side stepped a majority of top talent, and to hear him talk title shot irks me.

Sadly, I must agree it would make since for ratings.

Bisping is wrong on both counts.

After Chael loses to Anderson, Bisping needs to win at least one more fight to get his shot.

Anderson will destroy Lombard in the mean time.

Then Bisping MAY get his shot. If he does, it will be the most humbling experience of his life.

Bisping is a good fighter and a good striker, but he is tailor made to lose to Andy. He's gonna try to strike with him and he's gonna get embarrassed.

Unless he retires, Anderson Silva will get an immediate rematch vs anyone who takes his title.



If Chael Sonnen wins with five rounds of ground and pound, I disagree with this assumption.
