Bisping makes cut to 185 official

Speaking to Ant Evans at Michael Bisping has confirmed his intentions to drop down a wegith class from light heavyweight to the 185lb division.

Whilst having been speculated for a while, most fighters often require a loss to clairify their thoughts and it appears the recent loss to Rashad Evans was just the catalyst that ‘The Count’ needed.

“Even from my very first pro fight (April 2004), people were telling me that I was a little too small for the light heavies. But I kept winning and, at least before I stepped up to the UFC, I was winning easily so I didn’t really take much notice.”

The UFC are expected to return to the UK quickly after January’s Newcastle event and it is rumoured that their second outing to Britian in 2008 is where we may see his middleweight debut.

    What about the Hamill-Bisping rematch? If this move prevents that from ever happening, that would be a shame. I was looking forward to that.

  2. doem says:

    no brainer, if he can actually make the weight.

  3. I never wanted to see Hamill Bisping 2.

    This helps. We need about half a dozen other guys to drop down to move to WEC now.
