Bisping chose Boetsch over Le to move closer to title

by Dann Stupp | source: mmajunkie.com
 

Bisping (22-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) recently spoke to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva about his next fight, and he got two offers. One was Boetsch (15-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC), who recently staged a shocking comeback to defeat former UFC title challenger Yushin Okami, and the other was Cung Le (7-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC), who fights for the first time since a late-2011 loss to Wanderlei Silva.

"Because Tim Boetsch is coming off a great win over Yushin Okami, it just made more sense and was the more appealing matchup," Bisping today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "It's also a tougher matchup for me, but I want to win that next fight and stake a claim to that title shot.

"I think beating Tim Boetsch rather than Cung Le gives me more grounds to do that."

If Bisping wins this give him the winner of stann v Lombard. If he was to win that then id say give him a shot.

Bisping's scared of being hit usually, so he runs around the cage until his opponent gasses. Mayhem and Sonnen have no standup power, so he didn't run. I'd be shocked if he doesn't run for his life against Boetsch. Unfortunately, Boetsch is slow and gasses, so it's a tailor made matchup.
