Michael "The Count" Bisping isn't much of a happy camper these days.

Since making his UFC debut back in 2006 against Josh Haynes at light-heavyweight, Bisping has been trying to wrap his arms around UFC gold, but the belt keeps eluding him.

The former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 2 winner even changed weight classes to improve his title shot chances after a heart breaking defeat to Rashad Evans at UFC 78.

Bisping made his middleweight debut at UFC 83 against Charles McCarthy, and since then the UFC veteran has gone 8-3, however, he is still waiting for a chance to prove himself against a UFC champion.

Bisping often finds himself wondering how someone with his stellar UFC record and a veteran of 16 UFC fights could have somehow slipped through the cracks and not gotten a shot at UFC glory?

Cant Anderson just take him in the first fight of the PPV as a warm up for Weidman main event?

Typically the UFC doesn't give fighters coming off a loss a title shot. Remember Chael?
Also Bisping should be focused on Stann. I think Bisping wins this fight but Stann has KO power. And if Stann wins it will be by KO.

Is this the reason Anderson wants to fight at 205? Because he's getting tired of Bisping begging for a title shot

I don't know how a guy like him a middleweight for like 3 plus years hasn't fought franklin. Marquadt. Okami. Belcher belfort. He hasn't fought no one.

Beating people like kang and akiyama who record combined in the Ufc is like 2- 6 isn't good
Nor fighting a Jason day Dan miller or Charles McCarthy

Never beat Evans or hendo or sonnen or wandy
Should have lost to hamill

Beating Rivera. Come on give me a break.
Even stann is just a notch up from the rest

Beat weidman or Belfort or even belcher earns you points in my book

Should probably stop losing in title elimination matches if he wants the title shot. I don't dislike Bisping like other people do, but, dude, you're coming off of a loss in a title eliminator. Beat Stann and then Weidman/Boetsch and you have a solid argument, you don't have one coming off of a loss.
