KO The Only Thing On Michael Bisping’s Mind

Michael Bisping has put together a nice run in the UFC since claiming the title of Ultimate Fighter.

One thing Bisping has yet to achieve, however, is a shot at becoming a UFC champion.

At UFC 152, “The Count” can move a little closer to achieving a title shot when he takes on Brian Stann. However, Bisping knows that just a win over Stann won’t cut it; he needs to go for the finish.

I know a points decision with cute striking techniques isn’t going to cut it. I need to smash this guy up and that’s what is happening in Toronto.

Bisping was on the cusp of becoming the No. 1 contender in the middleweight division, but Chael Sonnen walked out of the Octagon with a decision victory and that title. Bisping was also nearing a title shot before Dan Henderson knocked him out after the two were coaches on TUF.

(Stann’s) got a puncher’s chance. He hits very hard. But I’m a better striker, better grappler, better wrestler – the better fighter, period.

    Theres more chance of this guy giving up crack than KOing stann. Stann knock out 1st round all day!

  • LeoLarios

    brians right hand will individually knock bisping out! i just dont see bisping or joseph benevidez winning on that card. for the jones vs vitor fight, im having a hard time reaching a decision.

    I agree with bisping that he is more well rounded than stann, but stann has more than a “punchers chance”, it can go either way.
