“I feel I’ve grown as a fighter. If I can’t do it now I’m never going to do it,” he asserted.

That’s not to say that the confident Brit has his sights set on champion Anderson Silva just yet. Instead, he has another Silva in his sights.

“I’d like to fight Wanderlei again, definitely,” said Bisping, referring to his disputed loss to the Brazilian earlier this year. “I would even consider coaching 'The Ultimate Fighter' against him.”

In a rematch Pillow Fists would get smashed in the 2nd round, in my opinion.

No bisping, wandy vs akiyama needs to happen! Would be a classic, no doubt in my mind.

neither Bisping or Akiyama impressed me. That fight was far from deserving fight of the night.

Wanderlei probably doesnt have a whole lot of fights left in him and i'd hate to see him waste another one beating Bispings ass again. He has bigger and better things ahead of him than that.

Bisping should rematch Wanderlei then call out Henderson or Chris Leben I feel he is so close to title shot with Silva he should try and get one. He could beat Silva because he tends to counter well and Silva looks haggard lately. Although Bisping's chin is a question.

i feel Bisping knows his place as a slick oppurtunist counter puncher against Wanderlei and looked very good tonight infact in my heart of hearts i thought his counters and right hands were on the money. He fought the best Japanese fighter in the world and he earned my respect. But who can't like Wanderlei, he gives 110 percent in every fight .You can't not like the guy. It would be a damn good rematch!!!

Really? I thought some of Bispings combo's were excellent. Although Akiyama did become a bit static.

Bisping thinks he's entitled to a lot more than he is at this point.

Bisping didnt look like he knows what to do if someone tries to hit him. Every right hand thrown looed way too close to ending Bisping's night. He dosnt cover up, keeps his chin up, and moves straight back. If I were Bisping I would work harder , and spar with people that counter hard. master the movement and punch like you wanna hurt someone.

hopefully Wandy wins and gets a title shot, I think Wandy needs 5 rounds to warm up.

If bisping thinks he is 1 fight away from a title shot then he shouldnt be facing Wandy, he should be facing a higher ranked guy in the MW division then.

Who is above Wanderlei that isn't currently scheduled or suspended for steroids? Why the hell would Bisping leapfrog someone who clowned him?

Wanderlei isn't exactly title material. Mark those words. And yes Bisping needs to stop fighting Denis Kangs and Wanderleis if he wants to pretend he would ever win a title fight.

Maybe a top 4 MW as a precursor to a title shot? I know it's original.

And as much as I hate Bisping and his finishing power equates to pillows I really don't think his punches are soft. I just think he has no snappy ko power.
