TUF 14 Finale Results: 4 Fights Michael Bisping Should Take Next

1 of 5

    The Ultimate Finale 14 is in the books, and Michael Bisping proved to be the better coach. 

    After a bad first round, Bisping was able to out strike  and outlast Jason "Mayhem" Miller, earning the victory when the ref stopped the fight in the third round.

    The UFC's top British star has now earned his fourth straight victory and should be looking to take a step up in competition.

    Here are some fights he should take next if he wants to be a serious contender.   

Brian Stann

2 of 5

    If Brian Stann would have gotten past Chael Sonnen, he could have been the number once contender for the middleweight title.

    Instead Stann finds himself on the outside looking in.

    Although Bisping is more experience than Stann, it would be a good fight to gauge who is ready to move up the latter, and who should stay just below the top middleweights in the division. 

Alan Belcher

3 of 5

    Alan Belcher is a guy who like Bisping, is right under the top contenders in the division.

    Belcher is on a three-fight winning streak and has won five of his last six.

    It would be interesting to see just who is serious about moving up in the division. 

The Winner of Vitor Belfort vs. Anthony Johnson

4 of 5

    Vitor Belfort and Anthony Johnson are two of the UFC’s most explosive guys.

    Both guys would be willing to stand and trade with Bisping and both could actually beat him to the punch.

    Although Johnson’s fight with Belfort will be his first at middleweight, a win over Belfort should put him high up in the division.

    If Bisping can get a decent win over either guy it would give him a win over two well known guys. 

The Loser of Chael Sonnen vs. Mark Munoz

5 of 5

    With Sonnen and Munoz official for UFC on FOX 2 in January, the winner will most likely get a chance at Anderson Silva.

    At the end of his fight with Mayhem Miller, Bisping said that he wasn’t ready for a title shot just yet.

    Taking on the loser of Sonnen vs. Munoz would give Bisping a creditable title contender to go against and give him a chance to prove he really does
