AS would like to face....Bisping??

Anderson Silva has exclusively told ESPN he would like to defend his UFC middleweight title against Michael Bisping in England, if the Briton achieves his goal of becoming No. 1 contender.

Silva is preparing for the eighth defence of his middleweight crown against The Phenom Vitor Belfort at UFC 126. Victory would take his winning run to 13 fights in the UFC, adding to his already exceptional legacy as the best 185-pounder to grace the planet.

Bisping is desperate to secure a title shot after back-to-back wins over Dan Miller and Yoshihiro Akiyama, and victory over Jorge Rivera at UFC 127 would propel him into serious contention.

Silva has history of fighting in the UK, having contested four Cage Rage bouts on English soil, predictably winning all four. A Silva v Bisping match-up could sell out just about any arena in the UK, and the Brazilian would be excited by the challenge.

"The British fans are very knowledgeable and passionate about MMA. I would love to fight there once more," he told ESPN.

"Michael Bisping is very impressive. He's been in the UFC for a long time now and beaten some very good fighters. It would be an honour to fight him, perhaps in England.

"He is fast, is very busy and makes adjustments quickly. I am the champion of the world, not just Brazil or America. Being a world champion means taking on the best fighters from around the world all over the world.

"If the chance came I would like to fight Bisping in the UK if that's what the UFC put together."

i know hes big on legacys and accomplishing big things but does he really think beating bisping in UK would be a big achievement? bisping is a good fighter but come on....its a fight tailor made for AS....bisping likes to stand but doesnt have any KO power...easy highlight reel for AS here

weird thing to ask seeing as though i dont think andy actually fears any1 look at all his interviews he never really cares who hes facing...anyway i say scrap it and book the superfight!

i think he just wants to fight there again in a show of respect for what Cage Rage did for him.

No wonder he wants to fight Bisping, he is a perfect match up for Silva!
That said it would be a big seller and a good fight i reckon.

Anderson Silva v Bisping should be banned, its a full gone conclusion that Bisping is gonna get hurt badly. This would be like the Forrest griffin fight all over again maybe worse, you just cant let a man go through that kind humiliation.

This 100 percent.

Bisping has better footwork and more speed than Griffin.

I'm not saying the fight would be competitive, but i dont think he'd get humiliated like Griffin did.

Bisping would do a lot better than Griffin, Leben or Irvin IMO. His striking is tight and his defense is solid compared to those 3, it still ends in a Silva TKO but i think Bisping could make a half decent fight of it.
