Bisping: Sonnen's title shots are 'frustrating'


For Sonnen, that will be his third title shot in five outings, after he twice lost to Anderson Silva.

Bisping, meanwhile, was confirmed on Saturday to be fighting Vitor Belfort as he bids to prove himself worthy of facing Silva. And the Brit - who holds much respect for Sonnen, admits it is hard to see any man get three chances of UFC gold when he is yet to be given one.

"I can understand it from a business perspective because Chael sells," Bisping told ESPN.

"But it's frustrating because I've been waiting my whole career for a title shot, and the guy's had three out of his last five fights be title fights.

"But I do understand and it'll be a great season of The Ultimate Fighter."

Everything Bisping said made sense. He wasn't being an ass about it.

This is EXACTLY why the UFC needs a ranking system.

I'm a huge fan of Bisping and I'm pretty positive that Anderson would humiliate him if they fought.However, I also think Anderson would humiliate pretty much anyone in the world if he fought them. I just want to see Bisping fight for a title once in his career. Like 5 minutes before Silva vs Bisping, I would be sweating buckets, my heart would be pounding and I probably wouldn't be able to talk. It would be absolutely exhilarating.I would love to see it. Even though I don't fancy Bisping's chances. I would still love to see it.

I understand his point on Chael. And I agree with the fact that Chael doesn't deserve the Jones fight. But he did deserve the two with Silva. But Mike needs to worry about his career and getting himself past top opponents. Something that more often than not he hasn't done. He is a good fighter and he is close to a title fight again like he was when he lost to Henderson. And again to Chael. Bisping fans always whine about the Chael and Rashad decisions. But truth be told they where both close. And he arguably could have gotten the nod. But neither one was anywhere near a robbery. However they like to forget the decision in the Hamil fight.

Thread title could've been "Bisping: I Understand Sonnen's Title Shots" as he said that twice but I guess it wouldn't get the clicks then.

Bisping fans should be glad that he never got a title shot yet, he would end up looking like Kingsbury...

If Bisping beats Vitor I'll Shutup about him. If he scores a knockdown I'll have a fuckin heart attack. Still yet to even drop anyone in the UFC and he's bitching about title shots. Chael dropped Anderson Silva twice in one round and he's a wrestler FFS
