Prior to making noise in the middleweight division, perennial contender Michael Bisping had been on a tear in the light heavyweight division, going 4-1 in the UFC before making the decision to move down. The man to hand him a loss and change his mind – Rashad Evans, whom currently sits in the top five of the 205 pound division.
“One hundred percent, said Bisping. I think about it every time I want to eat pizza and can’t. But seriously, I do think about it, I was 15-1 at 205 pounds but 185 pounds is where I should be right now. -Yahoo Sports Public Chat”
With Bisping currently still ‘in the mix as a possible contender for the 185 pound title after losing a close and controversial decision to Chael Sonnen in a contenders bout back in Jan. he will likely not be planning a move up with a rebound win. The brash Brit will look to redeem himself with a win over his next opponent Brian Stann at UFC 152 on Sept. 22. Should “The Count” get past Stann, Dana White has made it clear that the UFC would love to put on a title fight in the U.K. with Bisping headlining a title fight.
