Bisping: Weidman undeserving of No. 1 status after beating 'an out-of-shape fat man'
September 14, 2012 (22:15) [ Indexed from MMAjunkie
LAS VEGAS - UFC middleweight contender isn't looking past his UFC 152 opponent, Brian Stann.
But with what appears to be a bit of a four-man tournament lining up in
the UFC's middleweight division - and with UFC President Dana White on
Thursday declaring Chris Weidman (9-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) the division's No. 1
contender - the question seems unavoidable.
For the record, no, Bisping does not believe Weidman deserves that type
of recognition. And while he's not so sure Weidman will make it past Tim
Boetsch in their December fight, Bisping likes his chances against the

Near the end of a phone interview, I got to talking with Michael Bisping about why, despite a very respectable record in the UFC, some people insist on adopting the position that he is a mediocre middleweight who could never be a UFC champion.
Why do they say he doesn't have what it takes to be a top contender? Why do they denigrate his grappling ability and punching power, no matter what his past opponents say?
After all, it was Chael Sonnen who told me that after he signed on to fight Bisping he got a phone call from Dan Henderson, warning him not to believe everything he'd heard about the Brit.

Michael Bisping believes win over Brian Stann at UFC 152 should get him title shot
July 23, 2012 (16:45) [ Indexed from MMAjunkie
Hector Lombard may have complicated things in the UFC's middleweight division Saturday by not only failing to live up to his hype reel, but losing to Tim Boetsch at UFC 149.
UFC president Dana White had said before the card in Calgary that he expected to have some answers about what will happen next in the 185-pound class after the show. But with Lombard's loss, White said he would have answers in the coming days.
But according to Michael Bisping, figuring out who should get the next crack at champion Anderson Silva is easy.
UFC 149's Boetsch: New opponent Lombard more of a contender than Bisping

This is how much of a damn Tim Boetsch gave when the UFC socked him with Hector Lombard instead of Michael Bisping.
When his wife woke him to news of the switch, which put him in the co-main event of UFC 149 and Bisping on the disabled list, you'd think he'd already given his 100th interview on the subject.
"That's going to be a tough fight," he told her, "but to be the best, you have to beat everybody."

What's the holdup?
UFC middleweight Alan Belcher said he agreed to fight Michael Bisping at UFC 152 as soon as the Brit called him out on Tuesday. And yet, no fight.
"When someone says, 'Let's do this if you've got the balls to fight me,' and I say, 'OK,' and call (UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva right away, let's make the fight happen," Belcher today told MMAjunkie.com Radio. "I don't see why it's already been two days and there's no date."
