With UFC 120 win, Michael Bisping likely vs. Chael Sonnen or Patrick Cote

If UFC middleweight, Michael Bisping defeats Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 120 on October 16th he will look to face either Chael Sonnen or Patrick Cote in his first fight of 2011 after a war of words broke out with the duo over the past couple of weeks.

Bisping has prectically forced his way into title contention since losing to Dan Henderson at UFC 100. Defeating Dennis Kang, losing to Wanderlei Silva and most recently defeating Dan Miller, this has led the TUF 3 winner to the periphery of a shot at the title should he pick up back-to-back wins from here.

Standing in his way is the talented Japanese judoka, Akiyama, who he faces on home soil in London England later this year.
