Michael Bisping: "I am destined to be the World Champ"

Quote:
For the past nearly five years, Michael Bisping has come close on a couple of occasions to finally reaching his goal of getting a UFC middleweight title shot.

He came up short in both of those fights, losing once to Dan Henderson and, in the other, dropping a close decision to Chael Sonnen in a fight he took on a weekís notice.

Now Bisping has been declared the No. 1 contender in the middleweight division by UFC president Dana White. All he has to do to get that elusive title shot is to get past Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX 7 on Jan. 19.

In the past, Bisping has always come across as supremely confident, and maybe at times even cocky with his belief in himself, but looking back at those past fights he can honestly say it wasnít the right time to get a title shot and maybe that was the deciding factor in both losses.

The times have changed, however, and as he stands on the precipice of his UFC dream coming true, Bisping is as ready as heís ever been.

ďIn the past Iíve said I believed it, and I certainly talked the talk, but I think if I searched deep inside my soul, maybe I knew that I wasnít ready or maybe didnít fully expect to win. Now I know Iím one of the best in the world. Iíve been around this sport long enough. Iím very successful. Iím full of confidence. My skill set is better than itís ever been, my athletic ability is better than itís ever been, and Iím certainly in my prime,Ē Bisping told MMAWeekly Radio.

ďIím destined to be world champion. I will be world champion one day. You can guarantee that. Iím ready to take this title 100-percent.Ē

During Bispingís tenure in the UFC middleweight division, one man has stood as king the entire time. Anderson SilvaĎs reign is nothing short of legendary, and heís held the title with an iron grip, destroying every middleweight thatís stepped in front of him during his time as champion.

In recent interviews, Silva has expressed interest in a fight with Bisping, and the British born fighter takes that as an extreme compliment. One he hopes to pay back by earning the shot to face him in the Octagon later this year.

ďItís like if youíre a boxer and Floyd Mayweatherís saying Ďthatís the guy I want to fight next.' Thatís a huge compliment. Itís the same with Anderson Silva. Heís saying theyíve got their eyes on me. He obviously recognizes the talent, he recognizes the threat, he knows itís a marketable match-up. Itís a fight people are going to pay to see,Ē said Bisping.

ďItís very complimentary and itís a testament to what Iíve achieved and how hard Iíve worked in this sport.Ē

Silva is currently sitting out and awaiting word on his next fight, but if Bisping is successful this weekend in Brazil, the match-up will almost be a lock in the next few months.

ďAnderson wants this fight as well; a lot of people will tune in to watch. I believe I can give Anderson a run for his money, certainly a much better fight than some of the other people have done lately,Ē Bisping stated.

Bisping isnít looking too far ahead because as much as he wants that title shot and a fight against Anderson Silva, it all goes away if he canít get past Vitor Belfort this weekend at UFC on FX 7. All of the accolades and compliments are nice, but Bisping wants a title shot, and to do that he knows he has to earn it.

ďIíve been after this for a long, long time,Ē said Bisping ďBut Iíve got to beat Vitor first.Ē

As much as I'd love to see someone beat Anderson the Great. I don't see how Bisping has much of a chance. His striking and Jits doesn't come close to Anderson's. A part from a "puncher's chance" I don't think anyone considers him to be a serious threat, including the champ.

That being said I like Bisping I think he's funny. I'll be rooting for him anyway

bispings only chance to win that fight is to make it a dirty fight, pressure and take downs and stay away from his range, all that is easier said than done with silvas muay thai clinch and amazing foot work.

I for one would like to see this match up, however I'm still trying to figure out how he beats Vitor.
