Current UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping is out of the octagon right now rehabbing after a knee surgery.
Bisping does have a plan when he does return to the octagon.
“I want the biggest fight I can get,” Bisping told Champions. “I don’t mind facing No. 1 contenders, but at this stage of my career, I’ve fought the best guys forever. I want the biggest fight it can possibly be. And by biggest, I mean the biggest money-generating fight I can possibly have. I feel I deserve that. I’ve earned that.”
Bisping even has a few opponents in mind for those money fights.
“If that’s Yoel Romero, great,” Bisping said. “(But) if it ain’t Yoel Romero, if it’s Anderson Silva, great – I know he’s piped up again (about wanting a rematch) lately. If it’s ‘GSP,’ I don’t care who the opponent is. I’m not bothered by any opponent. I’m the champion of the world, and I will take on all comers. But I want the biggest fight possible.”
Bisping hasn’t competed since UFC 204 in October of 2016, where he defeated the now retired Dan Henderson by decision, Bisping has since had a knee surgery that is keeping him out of action until at least May.
