Michael Bisping Claims He Could Have Easily Knocked Out Anderson Silva
The final moments of UFC 162 is still looping on repeat in a lot of people’s minds. Chris Weidman was given the support by many professional fighters, but still, walking into the event nobody would dare place an intelligent bet against Anderson Silva. After Silva was down on his back, looking up at the lights, everyone in the arena was speechless. Rogan, Goldy, and the fans in attendance were just as surprised as anybody else that Chris Weidman had just knocked out “The Spider”.
Except Michael Bisping. According to him, he could have dethroned Anderson Silva just as easy. In a recent interview with MMA Weekly, Bisping shared his thoughts on the UFC 162 main-event.
“Obviously it would always be a dream of mine to fight Anderson Silva and be the guy to take the title, of course. Yeah I was a little disappointed and I’m not taking anything away from his win, but we all know Anderson Silva was acting like an idiot and he got knocked out. It would have been nice to be the guy that did it, so congratulations to Chris, he’s the new champion and certainly a formidable force at middleweight, but yeah, it stinks a little. I could have done that. I could have easily done that.”
Michael Bisping will be stepping into the octagon in October to face Mark Munoz. The two middleweights are set to main event “UFC Fight Night”, and if the stars align, Bisping may still be able to still get his hands on Silva if he walks away with a victory.
