Randy Couture: Michael Bisping has proved he deserves a title shotPosted on December 14, 2011, 03:30 PM by Anton Gurevich
UFC Hall of Famer Randy "The Natural" Couture shared his thoughts about the current situation in the UFC Middleweight division, naming Michael "The Count" Bisping as someone who currently deserves to be in the pole position for a shot at Anderson Silva's belt. According to Couture, Bisping's victory over Jason Miller proved he's one of the top 185'ers on the planet:
"I think he probably does. He's right up there in the top four or five guys in that weight class. You can split hairs on deciding who the No. 1 contender is. He's coming off a great outing against Jason Miller, weathered a storm and had the conditioning and great technique to finish the fight well. He's one of the top guys so why not?" - ESPN.co.uk
Meanwhile, Michael Bisping spoke about his upcoming UFC on FOX 2 bout with Demian Maia. According to Bisping, the Brazilian brings much more to the table than Jason "Mayhem" Miller, who failed to impress during his return to the Octagon at the Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale event in Las Vegas, Nevada.
UFC on FOX 2 will take place on January 28, 2012 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
