UFC middleweight perennial contender, Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping lists his reasons as to why he will be the man with his hand raised at UFC 152 after battling “All American” Brian Stann.

“This isn’t UK vs. America. This is Michael Bisping vs. Brian Stann. It’s an individual sport and come the 22nd of September, I’m going to individually kick the crap out of Brian Stann. When he was in basic training shining his boots, I was in the UFC kicking ass.”

“I’m getting better and better with every fight, I’m maturing as a fighter, I feel I’m in my prime, and I’m ready to beat Brian Stann and then take that title.

“He’s not training as hard as me, he can’t train as hard as me. I’ve done this my whole life. Regardless of where the fight takes place, Sept. 22 I’m coming for him, and he knows that.”

“He’s got decent punching power, and that’s what I’ve got to watch for. I can punch pretty hard myself.
If he thinks I can’t knock him out, then the guy is f—- crazy.

Talks of a possible large event in the U.K.. sits on Bisping’s shoulders. Should he earn a title shot, the UFC will likely have the ability to setup a large event in England.

“I want my shot. People have had their shot. Others have had their shot, stepped in their and fallen over with a little slap. I won’t do that, I’ll turn up to fight. Anderson Silva will be in the fight of his life when we fight, and we will fight. I will beat Brian Stann and I will fight Anderson Silva.”
