I like the word "If"
ha ha, that is actually quite interesting though. If Mike were truly confident in a victory over Belfort, surely he wouldn't have used the word "if", it would have been "when I beat Vitor Belfort".
He had a similar kind of interview with Ariel when he was asked about facing Anderson Silva. Bisping said some thing like; "I think I can do well against this guy". Both of these quotes to me show that Bisping isn't fully confident in his ability to ever become champion. I think deep down he knows he doesn't have what it takes to become champ and it's little quotes like this that give it away.
