The UFC's official announcement regarding bouts and tickets for UFC 105 came today and with it Michael Bisping's thoughts on his opponent for the event, Denis Kang.
Kang (32-11) is a seasoned veteran and BJJ black belt and Bisping (18-2) had a lot of positive things to say about his prospective adversary.
“I’ve watched Kang’s fights over the years and he is very dangerous on the ground with his submissions and is also a powerful striker on his feet," stated Bisping, assessing his foes strengths. "Another thing I’ve noticed is that he never seems to gas in his fights. Going into a fight I can usually plan a strategy and rely on the fact that I will be fresher in the last round than my opponent. However, with Kang I can’t count on that. He’s a great athlete on top of everything else and this could be a very fast-paced fight from start to finish.”
Keen to get back to winning ways following his last performance against Dan Henderson at UFC 100, Bisping believes Kang is the perfect opponent to to prove he belongs in the upper echelons of the middleweight division.
“Kang is a very good fighter and one of the best in the division,” said Bisping. “This is exactly the sort of fight I need to get right back up there and prove that I’m one of the top guys in the division."
More important than anything, however, Bisping wants to prove he is still the exciting fighter that won him The Ultimate Fighter crown and kept him undefeated for so long.
