Michael Bisping is poised to claim the middleweight title from Vitor Belfort even when he recently lost from top fighters like Tim Boetsch and Alan Belcher in 2012. Belfort mentions that he is going to make Bisping regret UFC on FX 7 through a well-managed plan.
Belfort was recently interviewed for this January 19 bout and he has even informed UFC President Dana White that he should start to look for fighting options for Anderson Silva. He said: “I already told Dana, choose another guy to face Anderson because he’s not going to get through me. That’s the bottom line.” He adds: “I don’t care. It doesn’t change anything in my life. God is my provider and I have a fight and I’m winning. That’s the only thing I know, I’m winning.”
