The Count

MIchael Bisping

Earlier in the week the “Shogun” camp went public with an idea involving a catchweight UFC fight at 195 pounds against Michael Bisping.

“If I could choose, I’d love to see him fighting Michael Bisping,” “Shogun’s manager told the Brazilian Media (PVT). “I suggested some names to the UFC, and I would like it to be at 195 pounds, like Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort did before dropping down. It would be a good way to test the weight cut, to see if he would perform better, how he would deal with the process, and if that would give him a new motivation.”

And Bisping’s response?

Michael Bisping fights CB Dollaway at UFC 186, and “Shogun” is currently booked with a TUF Brazil coaching gig.
