Michael Bisping: “I want to fight Chael Sonnen because he’s an amazing fighter”

UFC middleweight contender, Michael Bisping talks about his potential next opponent inside the UFC octagon, explaining he’d love to fight former number one contender, Chael Sonnen.

Bisping, speaking via MMAFighting.com, said:

“I want to fight Chael Sonnen because No. 1, he’s an amazing fighter. When he fought last, he looked fantastic, and I want to challenge myself. He’s the No. 2 ranked middleweight in the world. Obviously I can’t fight No. 1 because he’s got a title shot, so I want to fight the No. 2 guy.”

“The things that Chael Sonnen comes out with, they’re so outlandish that you can’t help but laugh. Listen, I think he’s brilliant. I’ve watched the stuff from his last fight. I was in stitches. I was laughing my ass off. Even comments he said about me after my last fight, I just had to laugh at that. You can’t not laugh. Of course he’s going to get in my head at the time, but hopefully I’ve learned from recent experiences. It’ll make for a great fight I’m sure.”
