Bisping Says The Win Over ‘Fat’ Mark Munoz Does Not Make Weidman A Contender | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
Michael Bisping in an interview with FightersOnly.

Following his impressive win at UFC On FUEL TV Chris Weidman put himself in the position to be talked about as a potential opponent for Anderson Silva. However Michael Bisping thinks he should have to go through him first. ‘The Count’  previously called out Brian Stann and Alan Belcher and with Weidman added to the mix he would have no problem fighting all three.

“Yeah it seems like I am the man of the moment right now doesn’t it? That’s fine by me, I’m a professional fighter and I’ve not been busy enough lately to be honest so, I will happily fight all three of them – Stann, Weidman and Belcher can all have it.”

“I’ve got no problem fighting and beating all three of them, either on three consecutive cards or all on one night if they want. Listen, Belcher’s getting on my nerves. He keeps saying he has got the style to beat me – what style? No man with a tattoo like that can talk to anyone about style! He’s been calling me out for a while now so I’d say to him, when you beat someone other than a pure jiu jitsu guy then call me.”

Bisping comments on Weidman’s victory over Munoz. In his opinion a win over a ‘fat’ Mark Munoz does not make Weidman a contender.

“Brian Stann I respect, fine, I think we are on collision course and we can have that fight. I’ll win. And now Chris Weidman is calling me out. Well, he’s on a roll but I don’t think a win over a fat Mark Munoz makes you a contender. Especially when Munoz has bounced into the Octagon like he’s at a Take That concert and with a haircut that looks like Belcher’s tattooist has switched careers. Did that distract him? It distracted me. I couldn’t take my eyes off it. What was it supposed to be, do you know? Everyone’s talking about Weidman today but I tell you what, we were on the same card in January and I had to switch his fight with Maia off. I was trying to warm up backstage and the fight was putting me to sleep.”

Bisping finished off by wishing his fellow Middleweights luck… Well apart from Belcher.

“He looked good last night – or did Munoz look awful? They all seem like nice guys, good luck to them – except Belcher, he’s been getting on my nerves so lets not include him [in the good luck wishes] – but I will happily fight them all, no problem. I want to be the champion and I think I am one more win away from a title shot. And any of these guys can be my first defences.”
