“No, absolutely not. Listen, I haven’t fought for the title yet and I think I’m destined to be world champion one day. No one works as hard as me. I’ve got the skill set, I’ve got the tools, and I’ve got the mental capacity to achieve that. You know, the mental toughens that’s required. I got all the ingredients. Maybe in the past I wasn’t ready. Now I feel ready. The fact that I’ve built myself back up, I got myself in the position again, I think it’s a testament to my mental toughness and my desire to win and continue. I’ve been in the UFC for seven years and God forbid this doesn’t go my way Saturday night, I’m not going away. I’m not going away that easily. I’ll go away, I’ll build myself back up and I’ll be back in this division again and I will win. But right now, I’m not even thinking about that. I’m very confident. If Vitor beats me Saturday night you will hear no excuses from me. He will beat the best version of me right now and he’s one hell of a fighter. But, I truly believe I’m going to do it. It’s going to be tough.”
While on a recent episode of “The MMA Hour” Michael Bisping talked about destiny, his mental toughness and what it takes to be the champ.
