Michael Bisping vs. Anderson Silva

I had a brief, less-than-civil conversation with Bisping last Tuesday night in our Toronto hotel, essentially about negative stories that have been written about him in the past. But you won't ever hear those negative stories coming from me, because I firmly believe that Bisping is the most deserving title contender in the middleweight division.

Bisping is 9-3 since moving to the middleweight division in 2008. That's not the most perfect record in the world, but compare it to other recent title challengers. Chael Sonnen was 6-3 in the same time frame when he challenged Silva a second time this summer. Vitor Belfort was 3-1 when he got his title shot. Yushin Okami was 4-1.

And none of this even touches on the absolute fact that Bisping has been in the UFC for a very long time without receiving a title shot, and he's also one of the most marketable stars on the roster.

No matter what you may think about Bisping as a person***8212;and your notions are probably incorrect, anyway***8212;there's no doubt that his dominant win over Stann should earn him a title shot. Unfortunately, he may get lost in the shuffle due to a potential Silva superfight with Georges St-Pierre. If that mega-fight doesn't happen, then Bisping deserves his opportunity.
