Michael Bisping doesn’t see Chris Weidman as the top contender in the UFC’s middleweight division

It turns out there is at least one person in the MMA world who doesn’t believe Chris Weidman is the next challenger to Anderson Silva‘s reign atop the UFC middleweight division.

Michael Bisping, the outspoken former Ultimate Fighter winner, added Weidman to his long list of fighters he has called out in the past few weeks. Bisping, who is rehabbing from knee surgery, has also made a push to face Brian Stann or Alan Belcher along with claiming to be ready for Silva.

Weidman, meanwhile, scored a second-round stoppage victory over Mark Munoz Wednesday night in the main event of UFC on FUEL TV: Munoz vs. Weidman. The former Hofstra University wrestling standout improved to 5-0 in his UFC career and 9-0 overall.

That doesn’t appear to be enough to warrant a shot at “The Spider” in the eyes of Bisping.

“Weidman looked great last night. But #1 contender? If that’s the case I want to fight him and prove I’m the number 1 contender. Let’s do it,” Bisping posted on his Twitter account.

For now, Bisping remains on the sidelines, and the UFC has yet to officially announce his next fight. Both Stann and Belcher have said they would accept a fight with Bisping, but nothing official has been put together.

    Bisping’s good, but his connection with reality is a bit slender.

    Can’t blame the guy, he’s been working for a fight with Anderson for years now. In fact, Bisping’s probably been angling for that fight for about as long as Weidman has been fighting professionally.

    Chris looked good, but he’s young and I think he needs another big fight before they throw such a young — and impressive — talent to a wolf like Anderson.

    So he loses to Sonnen and before that beats a washed up Jason Miller. On top of that he couldnt finish the punching bag Miller. Im not impressed and he should have two wins two fights against top contenders before possibly getting a shot at Silva

    I’m confused why Bisping things he’s at the top of the pile when he just lost his last fight. Also he’s called out what 4 people now? Can he not decide who he wants to fight?

    Well for one the fight with Sonnen was razor close, Bisping could have gotten the nod, for him to neutralize Sonnen like that was not expected by many. I think he should be in a #1 contender fight next.
    He thinks so too, and called out everyone who could be his opponent in that fight.
