Mixed martial arts middleweight contender Michael Bisping is one of the UFC’s more popular fighters. He has been a divisive character since his UFC debut in 2006. The Ultimate Fighter 3 winner is one of the MMA organization’s longest employed fighters and has headlined numerous UFC events.
After his last win at UFC 159 against Alan Belcher, the Englishman was called out by international superstar and former Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le. Since April 2013, the two fighters have expressed a great interest in facing each other in the near future.
In an interview with ESPN, regarding Bisping, Le stated:
That would be a great fight for the fans. That would be a big fight [against Bisping]. But I’m not the one to make that decision. Whether I’m at the top of that list for the fight or on the bottom, it ultimately comes down to who Joe Silva and the UFC decide who we fight.
Both combatants possess a unique skill set and a profound knowledge of the fight game. Since both Bisping and Le prefer the stand-up game, a fight of this magnitude has all the trimmings to be one for the ages.
