UFC Fight Night 83 will feature former champ Anderson “The Spider” Silva against Michael “The Count” Bisping in a main-event clash that Silva feels will get him back to a title shot if victorious.
Silva is well aware of his position with a victory but more aware that Chris Weidman is no longer the man that stands in between him and the gold.
UFC.com interviewed Silva:
“I would love this fight to be in Brazil, but it’s going to be a pleasure to come back and face Michael Bisping at the sold out O2 Arena in London. It’s been a while since I fought in London for the last time, and I’m really excited to be back. I believe this is going to be a big test so I can come back and go after a title shot.”
Does a win against Michael “The Count” Bisping warrant a title shot for the former middleweight champion? Would Luke Rockhold pose a threat to Silv’s chances of reuniting with the belt?
