3 Reasons Michael Bisping Is the Fight All Middleweights Want

It seems like everyone wants an opportunity to punch Michael Bisping in the face. 

"The Count" has been a permanent fixture in the UFC after he knocked out Josh Haynes to win the third season of The Ultimate Fighter way back in 2006.

This can be equally attributed to both his gifts inside the cage and polarizing demeanor.

When Bisping officially made the drop down to middleweight in 2008, he positioned himself as one of the biggest personalities in the division. 

Since then, "The Count" has fought the cream of the crop at 185, and in the process, he has become one of the most recognizable faces in the UFC. 

While Bisping recovers from eye surgery, a bevy of marquee fighters have started lining up to get the next shot at him. Cung Le, Costa Philippou, Luke Rockhold and Rich Franklin are just a few that have been begging for the opportunity to take on the loud-mouthed Brit. 

Obviously, there is no shortage of talent willing to square off with Bisping, and these are the biggest reasons why.
