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.”
