"Alan Belcher has been calling me out for a long time, he's been quite impressive, so I'd love to fight that guy," Bisping said. "Anderson, Weidman, Belcher... they're three names I'd like to fight."

However, Franklin also figures in Bisping's plans, although for the completely opposite reason to why he wants to take on Belcher. Bisping has nothing but respect for Franklin, who was the last middleweight champion before Silva came on the scene.

Both men like to fight tactically and have excellent boxing and footwork in the stand-up. Aside from the fact Franklin is a southpaw Bisping sees plenty of similarities - believing they would put on an excellent battle.

"Rich Franklin, I've always thought he'd be a good fight," Bisping said. "I've always looked up to Rich Franklin, he's an incredible fighter, he's got incredible passion for the sport, we match up well in terms of a fight, and he'd be a tough fight.

"I'd like to fight him out of respect - he's one of the all-time greats. I've got nothing but respect for Rich, he's a fantastic fighter."

Bisping has named Weidman, Vitor, Franklin, Anderson and Belcher recently as matches he'd like. He has iron stones and a finely kept head of hair. Phone Post

He has also said he wouldn't mind a Hendo rematch. Crazy to think he would want a 2nd fight after the the way the first one ended

Bisping is going to have flashbacks of his ancestors getting owned in the Revolutionary War when Franklin gets done with him.

The only thing I have respect for when it comes to Bisping is that he'll fight anyone. He is a decent fighter but not great

The stuff he says makes it easy to hate him and I'm not a fan of the way he fights. It kind of annoys me lol Phone Post

I'm just happy someone finally called out Rich. He's one of my favorite fighters. I think he can beat anyone at 185 who isn't a Brazilian southpaw, so you never hear any contenders call him out.
