“I feel I’ve grown as a fighter. If I can’t do it now I’m never going to do it,” he asserted.

That’s not to say that the confident Brit has his sights set on champion Anderson Silva just yet. Instead, he has another Silva in his sights.

“I’d like to fight Wanderlei again, definitely,” said Bisping, referring to his disputed loss to the Brazilian earlier this year. “I would even consider coaching 'The Ultimate Fighter' against him.”

In a rematch Pillow Fists would get smashed in the 2nd round, in my opinion.

No bisping, wandy vs akiyama needs to happen! Would be a classic, no doubt in my mind.

Or okami/marquadt loser

neither Bisping or Akiyama impressed me. That fight was far from deserving fight of the night.

Wanderlei probably doesnt have a whole lot of fights left in him and i'd hate to see him waste another one beating Bispings ass again. He has bigger and better things ahead of him than that.

Bisping should rematch Wanderlei then call out Henderson or Chris Leben I feel he is so close to title shot with Silva he should try and get one. He could beat Silva because he tends to counter well and Silva looks haggard lately. Although Bisping's chin is a question.

i feel Bisping knows his place as a slick oppurtunist counter puncher against Wanderlei and looked very good tonight infact in my heart of hearts i thought his counters and right hands were on the money. He fought the best Japanese fighter in the world and he earned my respect. But who can't like Wanderlei, he gives 110 percent in every fight .You can't not like the guy. It would be a damn good rematch!!!

Really? I thought some of Bispings combo's were excellent. Although Akiyama did become a bit static.

Bisping thinks he's entitled to a lot more than he is at this point.

Bisping didnt look like he knows what to do if someone tries to hit him. Every right hand thrown looed way too close to ending Bisping's night. He dosnt cover up, keeps his chin up, and moves straight back. If I were Bisping I would work harder , and spar with people that counter hard. master the movement and punch like you wanna hurt someone.

hopefully Wandy wins and gets a title shot, I think Wandy needs 5 rounds to warm up.

If bisping thinks he is 1 fight away from a title shot then he shouldnt be facing Wandy, he should be facing a higher ranked guy in the MW division then.

Who is above Wanderlei that isn't currently scheduled or suspended for steroids? Why the hell would Bisping leapfrog someone who clowned him?

Wanderlei isn't exactly title material. Mark those words. And yes Bisping needs to stop fighting Denis Kangs and Wanderleis if he wants to pretend he would ever win a title fight.

Maybe a top 4 MW as a precursor to a title shot? I know it's original.

And as much as I hate Bisping and his finishing power equates to pillows I really don't think his punches are soft. I just think he has no snappy ko power.

Winner of Marquardt vs Okami I think would do the trick. Unfortunately, I think he'd lose to either fighter at this point, especially Marquardt.

Did wandy clown bisping? Because I thought it was a pretty close fight. Bisping is going to have to fight a top 3-4 guy if he is going get a title shot, and that means prolly waiting for some of the top guys to fight.

I mean look at it, win over Miller and Akiyama then saying 1 more win and title shot, then you prolly need to face a top 3-4 guy to get that. But Im guessing Bisping might need 2 wins to get a title shot. Who knows if he will wait for a top guy to open up to fight.

He still did a lot of running backwards with his chin up and circling towards the power hand of his opponent. Yes he did take one or two big shots from Akiyama and stayed conscious but I can't see him lasting past the first round with Anderson. I think he needs another 3 wins before he gets a title shot.

He will proably get the Okami/Marquardt loser, but Bisping has no idea on how to react when someone throws a big power punch at him, Bisping has good technical striking at times and good jujitsu but he has no power, dosen't cover up well, no wrestling so we will see how he does against better competition

What i don't get is how Bisping actually thought he won that fight? the two significant things that happened was Bisping nearly choked out and basically KO'd at the end of the fight...

Come on Michael, grow up a bit...

No doubt, he lost to Wanderlei and he just needs to move on.

Excellent combos against a stationary target with no cardio. Anyone can look impressive hitting a bag.

Bisping does need to look at the reality of the situation, u lost to wanderlei but u can't accept it, probably the only person walking the earth that thinks he won and yet he still insists he beat matt hamill.

u lost to wanderlei, now make ur way up, he was fortunate neither akiyama or miller worked for takedowns, especially because that was a very winnable fight for akiyama had he mixed strikes w takedowns.

damien maia booked? i'd give him maia even tho i think that is a good matchup because damien might struggle for the takedown, I would like to see him fight belcher even depending on his recovery...

Hate to open an expired can of worms but I never saw the "robbery" in the Bisping-Hammil fight that everyone was complaining about. I thought it was a close fight and easily could've gone other way. I actually thought Bisping would get the decision at the end of the fight.

I think there's a lot of Bisping hate out there (myself included) and it clouded people's judgment about that decision.

Yeah, just because fighter A does 90 percent of the damage in the fight doesn't mean fighter B didn't dominate the decision by controlling 2 of the 3 rounds.

Right, I think with the current system winning the fight and winning the decision can be two very different things.
