Michael Bisping Interested In Future Move To Light Heavyweight Ranks

Chael Sonnen has decided to try his hand at competing with the light heavyweights in the UFC, and it appears that one-time foe Michael Bisping could do the same.

Bisping, who is currently scheduled to face Brian Stann at UFC 152, told MMA Weekly recently that a return to 205 pounds could interest him going forward.

I do think about it. I was 15-1 at 205 pounds, but 185 pounds is where I should be right now.

Bisping captured the title of Ultimate Fighter, earning three consecutive UFC light heavyweight victories before a loss in 2007. He decided to move down to 185 after that defeat, and has crept close to a pair of title shots since.

While nothing has been confirmed, it is rumored that with a win over Stann, Bisping could position himself for a bout with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, or at least place himself in a No. 1 contender match.

Bisping (22-4) is 8-3 at 185 pounds inside the Octagon, while Stann sports a 12-4 overall mark.
