"After I beat Brian Stann on Saturday night I want to fight Anderson Silva." - Michael Bisping
Brian Stann, however, has noted that he will not ask for a title shot against Anderson Silva should he emerge victorious Saturday night in Toronto. On the subject of Stann, I think we can all agree on who the biggest victory of his career came against. It was over Chris Leben at UFC 125 in Vegas. The All-American knocked out Leben at least one time (possibly three) in a fight that lasted just over three and a half minutes. He built some momentum by finishing Jorge Santiago later in the year and was then brought back down to earth again by Chael Sonnen. Another vicious KO win later, this one over Alessio Sakara, and he has been paired up with the one and only Mr. Bisping.
What exactly was the biggest win of Michael Bisping's career anyway and how did he get himself into a situation where he is ready to call out the greatest fighter of all time. Well, it is of note that thi...

It was billed as America vs. England. The All-American Marine against the loud mouth Brit. The former WEC light heavyweight champion against the TUF 3 light heavyweight winner. These are two fighters whose cardio has never, and will never be questioned. It did come down to who laughed last though. Bisping is just the little engine that could, can, will, and just did. If you can...

Bisbing Interview With Helwani

Sometimes an athlete gets a bad rap and it sticks. Like Alex Rodriguez for being a me-first pretty boy and admitted steroid cheat. Or Brett Favre for his frequent retirements and unretirements, not to mention his proclivity for raunchy cell phone photos. Or any number of modern-day athletes - Kris Humphries, Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson - who seem more interested in off the field...
