“The Count” has notched his place amongst the UFC’s elite, however whenever he is close to obtaining a shot at gold he has fallen short in rising to that coveted number one contender seat.
This time however, he plans on destroying Brian Stann at this month’s UFC 152 and claiming his rightful place to challenge Anderson Silva.
“This isn’t U.K. vs. America. This is Michael Bisping vs. Brian Stann. It’s an individual sport and come the 22nd of September, I’m going to individually kick the crap out of Brian Stann. When he was in basic training shining his boots, I was in the UFC kicking (bleep). I’m getting better and better with every fight, I’m maturing as a fighter, I feel I’m in my prime, and I’m ready to beat Brian Stann and then take that title. … I want my shot. People have had their shot. Others have had their shot, stepped in their and fallen over with a little slap. I won’t do that, I’ll turn up to fight. Anderson Silva will be in the fight of his life when we fight, and we will fight. I will beat Brian Stann and I will fight Anderson Silva.”
