Michael Bisping seaking title eliminator vs. Yushin Okami after Jorge Rivera

UFC middleweight Britt, Michael Bisping has revealed his gameplan over the next year, first to dispose of Jorge Rivera next weekend at UFC 127, and sneak into the number one contenders position by challenging Japanese star, Yushin Okami in a title eliminator match.

Bisping, speaking via ESPN.co.uk, said:

“If GSP beats Jakes Shields he will be fighting Anderson Silva. I can understand that, it’s a big business fight for the UFC and the fans want to see it. Fingers crossed I get by Rivera, Yushin Okami would make a lot of sense, although he might want to wait for a title shot. He doesn’t strike me as that type of guy though, I get the feeling he wants to be busy.”

“I’d welcome a fight with Yushin Okami. I’d welcome a fight with whoever. Let’s be honest, when I get past Jorge Rivera the next opponent is definitely not going to be easy. It’s going to be a tough fight regardless of who it is. If I get past them, I think I’d warrant a title shot.”
