Michael Bisping On Facing Vitor Belfort: ‘It’s Gonna Be An Easy Night’

Michael Bisping does not fancy Vitor Belfort as much of a challenge.

The two will collide later this month at UFC on FX 7 from Brazil, with Bisping on the cusp of claiming a UFC middleweight title shot with a victory.

And, as far as “The Count” is concerned, defeating Belfort will not be difficult.

“I trained hard, I’m the best I’ve ever been, I’m in shape right now,” said Bisping, during a recent interview with MMAInterviews.TV. “I can go 5×5 standing on my head. I don’t think Vitor Belfort can do the same thing, and after round one, he’s gonna be a walking punching bag and it’s gonna be an easy night for ‘The Count.'”

Bisping (23-4) is 5-1 in his last six, having only lost to Chael Sonnen. Prior to that, he was in a match with a title-shot on the line against Dan Henderson, but was defeated.
