Michael Bisping Excited To Not Be Fighting In U.S. Vs. Brian Stann

Michael Bisping knows that the American MMA population doesn’t tend to gravitate towards him.

Bisping, who came under heavy fire from Americans during his stint on The Ultimate Fighter opposite Dan Henderson, will be facing military veteran Brian Stann at UFC 152: Benavidez vs. Johnson.

For “The Count,” competing in Canada will give him a likely home-Octagon feel.

“If this bout took place in Texas, I’d probably be shot on the way out to the Octagon,” said Bisping, during a pre-fight press conference recently. “I am happy to be here (in Canada), love live the Queen, and I look forward to kicking his ass.”

Bisping believes he is nearing a shot at UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Earlier this year, he was defeated by Chael Sonnen in a match that went to a decision. Many felt Bisping had won, but it was Sonnen who earned the victory and a shot at Silva.
