"Chael Sonnen had his chance, put on a great performance but lost. Got tapped out, got finished, and then after that he failed a steroids test. As far as I can see he had his chance and he blew it. I feel I deserve a shot. I have got to beat Miller, he is tough, I am not looking past him. [But] it's me, I’m the contender. Belfort has just been beat, Yushin Okami has just been beat, Sonnen got beat. What are they going to do, all they all going to keep beating each other up and then having another shot at him? No, I’m the contender."

Actually, give him a shot. I wanna see if he makes it through the first 2 minutes. He can't wrestle so he would be forced to stand with Anderson. And from there it would just be bad. We may actually see the UFC's first fatality

he has a valid point though. sure his chances to win are very slim, but ill bet he does better than Vitor, Okami, Griffin did.

personally im 100000000% for a Sonnen rematch (and to a lesser extent Hendo). Bisping needs a top 10 win and is only a few fights removed from losing to Wandy. give him Maia, Stann, Vitor, or Munoz/Leben winner and if passes that test, then give him the title shot.

edit:
to prophecy, i dont see Silva KOing Bisping the way Hendo did...thats about as close to death as ive ever seen in a fight

Yeah, Bisping acts like he's beaten top guys or something. The top ranked MW he has ever beaten was barely in the top 20. Leben was ranked #18 by Fight Matrix when he fought Bisping. He asks if the guys that have recently fought for the title are just going to beat each other up and get rematches? Well, since Bisping doesn't ever fight any of those top 10 guys, then yeah, that's probably what is going to happen. If he beats Mayhem, that will help, but Mayhem is currently ranked #45 by Fight Matrix. Now I think Mayhem is quite a bit better than that, but I don't know that Mayhem is top 20.

With it rumored that Tim Kennedy is now with the UFC, that would be a good fight for him. Kennedy is currently ranked #10, and will probably want to fight before Bisping would be ready following his 12/3 bout with Mayhem. If Mayhem beats Bisping, then Bisping can just go back to fighting guys outside the top 25 like he is used to.

Don't know man. Rashad's knockout of Chuck was pretty damn close.

i wish we could see Bisping vs Sonnen. Sonnen would remind him real quick why he is the #1 contender & not Bisping

More annoying than Bisping's claim is people saying "If Hendo beats Shogun then he should get the next shot."

THAT'S NOT EVEN IN THE SAME WEIGHT CLASS!

The fact is though, Bisping still has a fight with Mayhem and Chael just won. So Chael is closer by those means.

I would give Bisping a shot before Sonnen, just b/c I don't like guys getting a rematch title shot after 1 fight.

But UFC wants Silva/Sonnen so bad, so they can sell the shit out of that
