Michael Bisping is currently recovering from eye surgery but he’s got an opponent in mind for his next bout in the UFC. He wants Cung Le. He recently received emergency eye surgery due to a torn retina.
Michael Bisping is one of the most popular middleweights in the UFC. He brings a brash personality and is crucial to the UK market. Bisping has always defeated the opponents that he’s suppose to defeat but unfortunately can’t defeat top opponents to earn him a middleweight title shot. A win over Le would go along way to help solidify a chance at UFC gold.
Cung Le last bout took place at UFC on Fuel TV 6 in Macau, China. He was able to upset and defeat former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin by KO in the first round. He’s got a lot of things going for him as of late. He’s in the movie business and he openly stated that he would only come back for big fights. A fight with Bisping would do huge numbers as a main event in the UK or China.
Will Bisping be a big enough name to bring Le back to the octagon? If he wants a chance at UFC gold at some point to cement his legacy, a bout with “The Count” is the perfect opportunity to show that he’s truly an elite middleweight.
