After losing what looked to be his final fight prior to challenging champion Anderson Silva, Michael Bisping finds himself in a precarious situation. It’s safe to consider him officially out of the title hunt. Yet he’s a quality fighter capable of beating the majority of the middleweight division.
Just not the overtly heavy-handed assortment, such as Vitor Belfort.
This leaves the outspoken “Count” on a vacillating fence that flirts with the boundaries of eternal journeyman. Can the Brit rise to the occasion and decisively defeat a top-five ranked foe, or will he be relegated to the keeper of the gates, forced to tangle with the majority of surging contenders?
Only time will tell the complete story of Michael Bisping. But at 33 years old, he doesn’t have the time to worry about confidence.
It’s imperative that Bisping get back on the horse, battling tough guys. If he’s going to make one more title run, it’s got to be soon, before Father Time phones one in for Mike.
