Anderson Silva Unsure Who He Faces Next After Michael Bisping Falls

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva attended Saturday night’s UFC on FX 7 card likely expecting to figure out his next opponent.

However, Michael Bisping – who was promised a title shot with a win over Vitor Belfort at the card – was defeated, leaving Silva in the dark as for his next opponent.

“I don’t know,” said Silva, in an interview on the post-fight show on Fuel TV. “I need to talk to Dana (White) and Lorenzo (Fertitta).”

Silva, who last competed in a non-title bout in late 2012, defeating Stephan Bonnar, has stated his desire to return to action later this year. He also declined comment on the status of his new UFC contract, which will likely take him to the end of his career.
