I could tell you that the time for talking is coming to an end, but when we are discussing Michael Bisping I’m not sure that time ever truly comes. Whatever the case, Bisping’s fight against Alan Belcher is fast approaching, and training camp is in full swing for the fighter known as “The Count.”
Bisping has always been one of the most outspoken fighters in the UFC, and if something is on his mind, it won’t be too long before we all know what’s bugging the 23-5 middleweight. Going into his last bout, his focus was on gaining a win over Vitor Belfort and earning a shot at the middleweight title held by Anderson Silva.
Things didn’t go Bisping’s way that January night in Brazil, as he was felled by a kick to the head and stopped in the second round by Belfort.
With that loss, it’s back to the grind for Bisping.
That grind begins April 27 when he faces Belcher (18-7), a fighter that is also coming off a loss in his last bout, dropping a unanimous decision to Yushin Okami in December.
Bisping’s camp is rolling along for that fight, and he’s preparing with some of the best in the sport. In this training camp video blog, Bisping gets some jiu-jitsu time in with former Strikeforce champion Jake Shields.
