UFC NEWS | UFC on FOX 2 | Bisping Blogs About Sonnen And Possible Shot At Anderson Silva

Straight from the UK Telegraph:
“There is a world title on the line, a shot at Anderson Silva, and at big payday at stake. Never mind the trash talk, the thing people really want to see is the fight.

On Saturday night, we will deliver. It might be a really attritional fight. I intend to make it the fight of the year.

Sonnen fights hard – so do I. There’s so much on the line, it’s going to be an incredible fight, and I can’t wait to get in there.

I’ll put it all on the line, because the real prize awaits.

Silva is pound-for-pound best in the world, he has almost become iconic. He us revered for the way he wins, the way he defeats people.

For me, to get a shot at him has always been my aim. If I was going to win the title off anyone, I’d want it to be against Anderson Silva.

He is the very, very best we have in the sport. No one else has been able to do it. He has been a champion for six years. If by fighting for the UFC middleweight title I can draw some attention to MMA in the UK, and help give it the boost it needs, then that will be the icing on the cake.

It is an incredible sport and there are some great fighters from the UK.

There is a real community in the sport which the wider world is being exposed to. The fight with Sonnen on FOX in the US this weekend will be watched live, they reckon, by between 10 to 15 million people, and by millions around the world in 150 countries.

It is my dream to represent England and the UK fighting for the world title. But I have to get through this challenge first against the strength and wrestling of Sonnen, who wants his return fight with Silva.”

    Can they both just die in the ring??? Lol. I hate them both so very much… They have bright futures ahead…with WWE or TNA! Nah for real I don’t see this fight lasting passed two rounds…Chael will wear him out on the ground and win by g&p

  2. CanILive says:

    if bisping wins somehow and then beats anderson, i truely believe this might be rigged for marketing purposes

    • Dante says:

      Yeah, because turning off 180+ million fight-crazy Brazilians for the sake of 65 million Brits, most of whom couldn’t give 2 shits about MMA, is a great business idea, right?

      • Jujitsu Player says:

        You too the words right out of my mouth!!! Although MMA has a good following in the UK its nothing like Brazil not even considering the massive difference in populations. This guy is clueless if he believes that.

        I give Bisping a slim chance against Chael. His defense against wrestling has come on a lot so has his BJJ. I’m not arguing Chael is the favourite but I’m not writing him off. Either way looking forward to Saturday.

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      Are you seriously entertaining that thought? Seriously?

    • CanILive says:

      my way of saying, bisping stands no chance against andy

      • jog on says:

        True, but neither does a non doped up sonnen

        • bruts says:

          and you know that how? you the ufc’s promotion guy? nope you arent, and you dont know shit, chael already beat anderson you would have to watch the first fight to see that anderson barley won that fight, he lost 4 rounds and a bit. but kid chael walked threw brian stann, hes going to walk threw bisping, then after hes done with bisping hes actully going to win the title this time around. hence why anderson has turned him down 3 times, then when dana says he has to fight him HE GETS HURT?!?!?!?! anderson silva is a horrible champion. if your the best prove it to us, ducking fights doesnt make you look like a champion and anyways at the end of the day chael would be 100x the champion anderson is he would fight anyone anywhere. anderson wont. andersons scared to fight chael again… and you idiots are talking about andy easing threw him? fuck smoke some more crack you idiot fans.

        • Mo says:

          Hey dumbass….Silva beat Sonnen…Get off of Chael’s nuts. What world do u live in thinking Sonnen won the fight? Back to the line Sonnen should go..Silva isn’t scared of Chael. All he has do is wait for the triangle submission..It will be there.

        • jog on says:

          Don’t take ur roid rage out on us friend

        • JMad says:

          calm down bruts, stop crying. thanks. and chael didnt win, he tapped so he lost, if he didnt tap he would’ve been asleep or had a broken arm. you need to come to terms with reality man.

  3. Ullysses31 says:

    @Dante: Great retort…..some people are just plain DUMB! Yeah that refers to you @CanILive…

  4. Justen says:

    Tough fight, but I hope Bisping wins.

  5. Thetude says:

    I hope Bisping and Sonnen beat themselves up so bad that they retire eachother. I am so sick of hearing the dillusional bullshit that comes out of there mouths. Sonnen was bad enough now we got the Brit talking like he actually has a chance to win the belt.

  6. The Beast says:

    you really think brazilians would stop watching just cuz anderson loses then your the dumb one

  7. Dom#1 says:

    there is no possible way bisping can stop chaels takedowns theres no way he can stand up when chaels on top of him pounding his face in… poor anderson couldnt even get up… Chael will grind out bisping and then he’ll grind out silva and become champ plain and simple. His biggest threat to anderson now is his bjj hes training..(Chaels a fasssst learner)

    • TJ23 says:

      Bisping is the same fighter as Brian stann except he doesn’t have half the power stann does.. Sonnen by unanimous decision and then TKO over silva..

    • Ash says:

      If he is a fast learner then 8 of his loses wouldnt be by submission would of learnt from the first 2 or 3 times he left his neck or arm in there the guy is a crap version of Fitch (least fitch doesnt get subbed) Sonnen finishes someone for the first time in 4 years then calls Anderson out after getting tested postive for PEDs makes me laugh when people get caught for PEDs everyone goes ape shit and calls them all the names under the sun other than the Sonnen ass bandits

  8. A.James says:

    I’m going for Bisping. Chael is a cheat.

  9. MMAnalyst says:

    If Bisping had trouble with out-of-shape, ring-rusty Mayhem Miller’s grappling then he is in for a ROUGH time with Chael…

  10. darren little says:

    Both guys are great for this sport! Their trash talk is brilliant! Why do so many people talk shit about these 2 great fighters?.their trash talk makes it more Intresting and the UFC would be alot more boring without these 2 fighters in it.

  11. Nick says:

    Can;t wait til Bisping gets mopped.
