Bisping: If Chael Sonnen beats Anderson Silva, I might get to fight for the title | UFC News

Michael Bisping comments to ESPN.
Bisping was on the wrong end of a close decision loss to now number one contender Chael Sonnen at UFC on Fox: Evans vs Davis, however there still may be hope for “The Count”.
“Dana called me after the Sonnen fight and I asked him, ‘Where does this leave me in terms of the title?’ He said to me, ‘In fairness Mike, you won the fight.’ Not that he sent me my win bonus! I asked, ‘Where does this leave me for the title shot?’ And he never said you don’t get one. He said, ‘We need to figure it out.’ When speaking to Joe Silva, he said it all depends on what happens between Sonnen and Anderson. He said if Anderson wins, I might be sitting around for a while. So if Chael wins I might get to fight [for the title]. But I haven’t been told anything official. Since Dan Henderson, I haven’t lost a fight. The Wanderlei fight I was robbed of a decision, the Chael fight I was robbed, so it’s going back to 2009. If you take those out, I haven’t lost in seven or eight fights.”
