Bisping: I'm a perrenial contender

by John Morgan | source:

"I think 185 pounds is the most exciting division in the UFC right now," Bisping said. "It certainly has the best champion, and it certainly has the most challengers to the belt.

"There's no shortage of contenders. There's no shortage of exciting fights for me at 185. I'm privileged to be a part of it."

"I'm a perennial contender," Bisping said. "I'm here, and I'm fighting the best guys. I want my shot.

"I'm tired. I know I've got to wait my turn, but it's pissing me off. I want to get my title shot, and if I keep beating guys, they'll have no choice but to give it to me."

Outlaw'd by Lytle said:"Bisping and Anderson are extremely close n terms of ability. The key differentiators IMO are:Silva = Greater Athleticism, BJJ, Power.Bisping = Superior Fight Intelligence, Cardio, TDDEverything else is equal. This would be an awesome fight." Phone PostLOL That's some funny shit, right there!! LOL

Bs....   Middleweight is the weakest division by far. It has the greatest champion,who would probably would also do great in the stronger light heavyweight division but the middleweight division has always be somewhat problematic in terms of talent for the UFC.   Personally i think the welterweight division is still the division that is the most stacked. After that come lightweight and heavyweight perhaps followed up by light heavyweight and last and thus least (i am not really counting the lighter divisions just yet because i have not seen nearly enough of them but i do think both feather and light rank below middle weight) stacked.   Anyways Bisping might be an contender but he will get his ass absolutely handed to him by Silva. I do think he deserved the fight though but i dont see him taking Silva down,i really do not see his stand up being anywhere near the level it is going to take to survive the Matrix and hence i only see a devastating defeat. So the perennial contender status will be lost by Mr Bisping pretty fast again.

Maybe... Bisping is hard to keep down and his standup ain't all too bad. I think we see a close fight, but the way Weidman has been vastly improving every outing who knows. Weidman is one of those special guys who we see get better every time (Jones, Cormier, Rory).

Thread title:   Bisping not so sure St-Pierre wants to face Silva Yeah really?  No shit!   Then you click the thread are are inundated with like 3 novels.  Is this thread as good as Hunger Games?   If not I'll take the title at face value and accept it for what it is.  Life's too short.

bisping vs weidman for number one contender so both of them can shut up and one fairly gets a title shot.I also can see bisping getting on his bicycle and decisioning weidman, how these silva haters would piss and moan... it would be glorious.

I think Bisping realizes he has such a minimal chance to beat Silva, he would rather be anorexic for 6 months and fight GsP...
