Michael Bisping calls out Chris Weidman

Michael Bisping calls out Chris Weidman

The floodgates were opened at the top of the UFC middleweight division last night after Anderson Silva stated his focus was no longer on the title he’d lost moments earlier to Chris Weidman. Without the perennial favorite in the picture, hope has been renewed for plenty of other fighters including Michael Bisping.

Bisping, who has come close to challenging for the championship before but never had an actual title-shot, went on Twitter last night and wasted no time in calling Weidman out.

“So you’re the champ,” wrote Bisping. “Defend it, fight me!”

Though Vitor Belfort is almost certainly up next for Weidman barring a change in heart from Silva, “The Count” could lay claim to the opportunity with a big win in his next bout. Bisping is currently shelved while recovering from a few injuries but is aiming for a match-up in Manchester later this year. He holds an overall record of 24-5 and was last seen scoring a decision win over Alan Belcher at UFC 159.

    He should try to beat someone in the top 5 before he calls out the champ

    I think the most surprising part about this for me, is that I’m surprised. Why Bisping thinks he deserves a title shot being 1-1 makes no sense to me, besides the ego and the fact that it eats him up that he can never actually earn a title shot the normal way.

    If not anderson, it will be vitor. Bisbing is at least 1 impressive win away.

    Get past someone like Okami first. Doubt he could though. Maybe even Munoz?

    Now that Andersen has lost everyone will be calling out Weidman. I saw Munoz made a comment about taking a title shot but in reality if there is no immediate rematch then Vitor would be next while everyone else, Bisping included, fight for the #1 contender spot.
