The day we thought would never come is nearly upon us: Michael Bisping, the much-maligned Brit who’s won some and lost some in the Octagon, is finally getting his title shot.

Of course, his prospects at actually winning the belt are grim, given that he’s facing Luke Rockhold (who already beat him once before) at UFC 199 this coming weekend (which is extremely short notice for Bisping, as he’s filling in for an injured Chris Weidman). But he’s getting his shot at least!

As part of the lead-up to the event, Bisping is making the media rounds, so below is his appearance on ‘Inside the Octagon’, that pretty insightful series featuring Dan Hardy. Hardy is an awesome interviewer, and Bisping has always been an awesome interviewee, so this one is worth a watch.
