UFC middleweight Michael Bisping (24-5) is in an envious position. As one of the division’s biggest draws based on both talent and his ability to sell match-ups via media, “The Count” has been plagued with potential pairings based on the amount of interest in fighting him. In past weeks, both Rich Franklin and Luke Rockhold have called Bisping out, though neither drew a ton of interest from the polished Brit.
However, one opponent Bisping is apparently down to duke it out with is former Strikeforce champ Cung Le. The 9-2 striker mentioned Bisping’s name in a recent interview with ESPN, calling it a “great fight for fans”, and got a warm reception from the Ultimate Fighter winner in return.
“You want it Cung then let’s do it,” exclaimed Bisping earlier today on Twitter. Le quickly responded, saying it “would be an honor.”
