Michael Bisping Unimpressed With Mark Munoz, Excited To Be Fighting Tim Boetsch

Ultimate Fighter winner Michael Bisping has won four of his last five fights, with the lone loss coming to Chael Sonnen in a battle for the No. 1 contender spot in the UFC’s middleweight division.

Bisping, who replaced Mark Munoz in the bout with Sonnen, seemed poised to possible meet Munoz in his next fight. However, Tim Boetsch has been tabbed as the next fighter for “The Count.” The two will meet on July 7 at UFC 148.

During a recent interview on ESPN’s UFC Podcast, Bisping discussed Munoz, and doesn’t seem very impressed with his abilities inside the Octagon.

I have never really looked at Mark Munoz and thought he looked like a particularly dangerous opponent. His ground and pound looks good, his wrestling doesn’t look all that dangerous, his stand up is suspect and he’s got a weak chin. I think Tim Boetsch is probably a harder fight.

Boetsch is coming off a knockout victory over Yushin Okami that vaulted him up the middleweight ranks. In Bisping, he will remain fighting the elite in the division, so a win over the Brit could really position him for a title shot in the near future.
