Bisping Hopes For Title Shot After Kicking Stann's A$$ And Embaressing Him | UFC NEWS

“We’ve had that conversation. But I’ve got to do that, I’ve got to perform. I’ve got to put on a good win against Brian Stann. As I said earlier, going out there and scraping a decision by the skin of my teeth won’t cut it. I’ve got to go out there, I’ve got to beat him, I’m gonna look good and I’ve gotta fight. I’m going to put on the performance of my lifetime. Brian Stann ain’t no pushover. If I do that, I believe I will get a title shot. Stann’s a very dangerous fighter, very popular, he’s a big name and this is a big fight. It’ll attract a lot of attention and I feel it’s a good opponent to put me in title contention. That’s what I want. I want the fights that’ll grant me a title shot. I think Brian Stann is definitely a name that could do that, as long as I get a good win and I win impressively. Regarding the fight, I’m just going to do what I always do. Train as hard as I can, get in the best shape I can, get as technically sound as I possibly can be and go out there and hopefully kick his ass.”

“I think I’m right up there. The middleweight division is as stacked as it’s ever been. Anderson’s beat out a lot of the division. I think the only contenders left that he hasn’t fought are myself and Chris Weidman. I think Chris Weidman whilst being a fantastic fighter, all the rest of it still needs to generate a little more hype. You know, no one really knows who he is. So, he needs some more big wins. I’ve been there in the UFC now for six years, fighting the best the UFC’s had to offer and I’m still here. I’ve got a stellar record and I want to fight the champ. Obviously I got to earn that right, and that starts on September 22nd pay-per-view against Brian Stann. I’m training as hard as I ever trained. I’ve got a fantastic camp going on. Other than that, I’m going to go out there to completely embarrass Brian Stann. I’m going to prove that I’m in a completely different league, beat the crap out of him and take my title shot. I don’t think a fight against Chris Weidman would generate the most pay-per-views. Up until recently, no one had a clue who Chris Weidman was. I didn’t. The only thing I knew about Chris Weidman was that I was watching his fight prior to my fight with Chael Sonnen backstage in Chicago before I went out and I had to turn it off because I was trying to get geared up for my fight and watching him fight was like watching paint dry. So, I’m not sure who’s going to pay 60 dollars to watch him get beat up by Anderson Silva.”
