White: Bisping vs. Silva in UK would be 'awesome'

by Shaun Al-Shatti | source: mmafighting.com

UFC on FUEL 5 marked Zuffa's first trip back to England in nearly a year, so it was inevitable the topic would eventually turn to England's favorite son, Michael Bisping

Surprisingly, however, UFC President Dana White was the first man to do so. Speaking to reporters at the post-fight press conference, White was asked about the prospects of the UFC bringing a championship fight to Europe.

"I hope so," White responded, before saying out of the blue. "It would be awesome to bring [Michael] Bisping over here if Bisping gets a shot at the title. We'll see what happens. I know you guys want it.

"Anything is possible. It absolutely could happen."

They'd probably do it at the O2 arena. Silva already said that he'd like to fight Bisping in the uk. I like Bisping but I think silva would beat him quite comfortably

I'd be surprised if this happened. Not only because of the loss of PPV, but if anyone was there last night, there were a lot of empty seats. Can't see how you could sell out a venue to make it worth while.

It's really too bad that Anderson will likely fight less from now on and is on a bit of a clock. I want to see this fight just not sure I want to waste one of silvas last performances on it. Hard choice.
