If Michael Bisping bests Mark Munoz in a big way next month, he just might be heading to his first title fight.
“I’d love a fight with [Chris] Weidman,” Bisping said in an interview with GiveMeSport.com. “The UFC have told me that this fight has title implications. A good win over Munoz, if Weidman was to beat [Anderson] Silva again in the rematch there’s possibility of a match with Weidman, or maybe one of the top contenders. For me, in a perfect world, a win over Munoz and then I get to take the title off Weidman. That’s what I would really like.”
Bisping has certainly been here before. Over the course of his UFC career, he’s dropped three straight title fight eliminator matches.
“The Count” will face Mark Munoz in the main event of UFC Fight Night 30, which will take place in the UK on October 26. It will air live on FOX Sports 1.
Bisping is currently ranked at #4 in the middleweight division, while Munoz is ranked #5.
