In a division where middleweight champion Anderson Silva has decimated majority of the key fighters in his weight class, Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping feels he is the most deserving of the next title shot as everyon has had their shot. After Bisping heard of a likely rematch between Sonnen and Silva, he became very vocal on the “steroid test failing” Sonnen, as he points out.
“Chael Sonnen had his chance, put on a great performance but lost. Got tapped out, got finished, and then after that he failed a steroids test. As far as I can see he had his chance and he blew it. I feel I deserve a shot. I have got to beat Miller, he is tough, I am not looking past him. [But] it’s me, I’m the contender. Belfort has just been beat, Yushin Okami has just been beat, Sonnen got beat. What are they going to do, all they all going to keep beating each other up and then having another shot at him? No, I’m the contender.”
Hopefully Chael Sonnen can turn his trash talking stand-up act to ‘The Count‘ for a good ol’ fashion debate.
