Michael Bisping is just one fight away from being thrown into the middleweight title mix, according to UFC president Dana White.

Speaking to Fighters Only recently, White revealed that "people keep asking, when is he going to fight Anderson Silva?"

"Mike's a great fighter, we saw that when we first came to the UK and first met him," he said. "But things take time, you got to build a guy up and give him his time.

If Bisping somehow gets by Hendo (and that's going to be no small feat for him)........I'll feel bad for Bisping.He wouldn't be able to do much to Anderson.

I don't think he will make it passed Hendo but I would like for him to that way Anderson could smack his head around the cage for about a round and a half showing everyone what a B level fighter Bisping is.

Both are probably up for a title shot. Dan beat Palhares and Franklin back to bac and a win over Bisping would be three pretty tough fights in a row. Bisping hasn't really has a lot of top tier competition, but a victory over Henderson should definetely put him right up there.

There seems to be quite a line building up for Anderson. You've got Yushin Okami who's supposedly next after Thales--then Nate Marquardts been on a roll, and the winner of Bisping and Henderson is probably next after that--not to mention the winner of Demian Maia vs Chael Sonnen is also going to be vying for the next spot in line. Anderson could be pretty busy this year.

This would be soooo bull crap is bisping got a title shot after beating hendo.

I have it like this....for who should be in line

1.Thales first, of course
2.Okami, I mean what else does he have to do, anderson could want a rematch
3.Hendo pending if he beats bisping
4.Marquardt if he beats Gouviea
5.Maia if he beats Sonnen
6. Then bisping is he beats hendo.

Just because he is the TUF 3 winner he shouldnt leap frog other contenders who could whoop bisping.

Hendo better crush bisping

All in a day's work for Anderson... Seriously. He could probably beat all of those people in one night tournament format. UFC 101: Anderson vs everyone just to clear some space. Henderson has a reasonable chance to beat him, I don't think anyone else in the division does. Maybe Palhares and Maia, but they would need to pull off a very impressive leglock or work their takedowns.

No **** Sherlock. That statement is retarded. He's already confirmed as a coach for TUF and already confirmed to be fighting for a title shot. Here's some news, IT"S not. lol.
