Dana White: Bisping ‘probably’ next for Silva if…

Sunday, December 16, 2012

Friday night Hector Lombard called out Michael Bisping, but Saturday night UFC President Dana White said he may have greater plans in store. After almost seven years in the the UFC, Michael Bisping may finally get a shot at UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva.

“If Bisping wins, Bisping will probably get that next shot,” said White at the TUF 16 Finale post-fight press conference.

The if of course is Vitor Belfort, fighting on his home turf. To get the Silva, Bisping has to beat Vitor Belfort at ‘UFC on FX 7’ on January 19th, 2013 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Bisping has won five of his last six, losing only to the Eveready Bunny of UFC title contenders Chael Sonnen.

Will Bisping get by Belfort? And if so, what will his gameplan be vs. the GOAT?
