MIchael Bisping Responds To Anderson Silva's Comments...
 
"Michael Bisping is very impressive," said Silva. "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."

Michael Bisping took to his Twitter account to respond to Silva's comments, stating that he hoped to face the champion down the road.

"About Anderson's comments, it's nice to hear nice things from the best in the world," Bisping wrote. "Hopefully soon I will earn the honour of fighting him."

You know what's funny. I've always thought that would be an entertaining fight. Emphasis on entertaining.
It's gonna be a stand up battle and that's the type of show Anderson wants to put on. All of his CAGE RAGE shows in the UK ended in impressive fashion or were exciting fights.

- Tony Fryklund
- Jorge Rivera (Interesting timing for Anderson to make those comments. Think he's boosting up Bisping's confidence.)
- Lee Murray

That was totally decent and respectful from Bisping!

I'm sure this would be his biggest wish as far as fighting: for the belt, in UK against the/one of the best fighters in the world.

Ok...maybe fighting against a noob would give him better chances of getting the belt, but i think he would love to test himself against Silva.

In the end, that's what it's all about: fighting the best in the world.

Silva: Bisping we friend. I fight you and put you in comma with punch, we friend. BJ Penn is best, we friend GSP, we friend. Dance, ah?

Wow. That pretty much hits the nail on the head.

Styles do definitely make fights and stylistically this match up if it ever happened could be good for Bisping on paper.

Bispings biggest flaw is backing straight up against guys who wing in but he has clearly been working on that and Silva doesn't wade in with bombs anyway.
If he could keep some kind of range, move in and out and throw in a take down attempt here and there to keep Silva thinking, I could see how he could pull off a win.

Realistically though, Silva is technically as good or better at throwing strikes, is just as fast, has more power and a better kick repertoire, he's also devastating in the clinch......

exactly, and i dont blame Bisping for wanting to fight for the belt/have a chance to beat the best in the world.

But this will in no doubt in my mind be a Anderson/Forrest type of fight, where we start to wonder, does Forrest really suck? Or is Anderson just not human???

Well lets see, Forrest got to the belt by beating Shogun, and took the belt from Rampage... Ok its not that.... Yikes someone check Andersons DNA!

Alan Belcher would have been another interesting fight. A guy who can take damage.

Anderson seems to turn it on in the UK though whenever he fights. There hasn't been one bad fight out there. Along with the other three fights he had there was also the Curtis Stout fight. Three out of the four fights in the Cage Rage org ended in KO/TKO. Must be the fans...

Anderson Silva vs Curtis Stout. Pretty interesting to hear that Curtis stated that he was already a fan of Silva and that he viewed his striking capabilities at the "genius" level.

Bisping's biggest flaw is a good striker! And Anderson is not a good one, he's the elite^^

At least Bisping has a small chance if he rocks him like Sonnen did. He has a chance imo a bigger one than Belfort but what do i know :P
