The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s middleweight title scene is as crowded as ever, and it appears as if Michael Bisping is backing off his talks of taking on one of the top contenders. Yoel Romero has been waiting patiently for his shot at the UFC Middleweight Championship, but Bisping wants some big money fights at this stage of his career.
Since winning the championship from Luke Rockhold last June, Bisping has defeated Dan Henderson do defend his championship. Now, he tells Champions that he is eyeing big money fights since he is at this stage of his career:
“I want the biggest fight I can get. I don’t mind facing No. 1 contenders but at this stage of my career I’ve fought the best guys forever. I want the biggest fight it can possibly be. By biggest, I mean the biggest money generating fight I can possibly have. I feel I deserve that. I’ve earned that. So whether that’s Yoel Romero, then great. But if it ain’t Yoel Romero, if it’s Anderson Silva, great. I know he’s piped up again lately. If it’s GSP [Georges St-Pierre]- I don’t care who the opponent is. I’m not bothered by any opponent. I am the champion of the world and I will take on all comers, but I want the biggest fight possible.”
