While Michael Bisping is recovering from surgery on his arm, multiple opponents are waiting in line to get a fight with “The Count” for his return to the octagon. The UFC middleweight has had a long time interest in fighting UFC great Anderson Silva, but it seems like that fire has died after Silva tested positive for anabolic steroids.

Bisping spoke with MMA Junkie and revealed his thoughts on a fight with “The Spider.”

You know, to be honest, I’ve always wanted to fight Anderson Silva,” Bisping said. “Everybody knows that. That’s been well documented. But, I don’t know if I feel the same about that right now. The fact is, I kind of said to myself recently, ‘Anybody that tests positive for performance-enhancing drugs, I want no part of it.’ As far as I’m concerned, you’ve been a cheat. I don’t think that at 39 years old, having the career that Anderson Silva had, I don’t think you make the decision at 39 years old to try this new thing called steroids. I think he must have been on the juice the whole time.

I’ve never used any of that stuff, and I don’t see why I should have to fight people who have used those products. So, I don’t know whether I would take a fight with Anderson Silva after that’s all said and done.

What are your thoughts on Bisping’s campaign to have no part in fighting opponents with a dirty past? Should more fighters be doing the same thing? Share your views with us in the comment section below!
