There are a lot of fighters when you ask them who they want to fight next, they answer with the standard ‘whoever the UFC puts in front of me’.

Now that might sound generic or somewhat manufactured, but for the most part it’s true.

Matchmaker Joe Silva calls and offers a fight and more often times than not a fighter accepts, but when two fighters both seem to ask for the same fight that can help speed along the process.

Well, Michael Bisping is hoping to make Joe Silva’s job a lot easier as he comes back after his recent knee surgery.

Bisping appeared as an analyst on Tuesday night’s edition of UFC Tonight where he first revealed his timeline for a return.

“Hopefully, pretty soon. The knee is healing nicely and it has been three weeks since the operation and I just started training. I just spoke to Joe Silva not too long ago and I am hoping to fight at UFC 152 in Toronto,” Bisping revealed.

Now as far as his fight plans, Bisping is gunning for a title shot but more importantly right now he wants to stay active and get back in the cage.

There appear to be two names on his hit list and he’s happy to challenge either one for his possible return to action in September.

“I would like to fight Brian Stann, he is a good fighter. A second one is Alan Belcher. Alan Belcher’s somebody that’s been calling me out for seems like forever now. To be quite frank I’m sick of it. So, Alan Belcher if your balls are big enough call Joe Silva and let’s do it,” said Bisping with conviction.

Belcher has long sought a fight with Bisping and following his impressive performance defeating Rousimar Palhares in May, that might just be a fight worth making.

The Mississippi native has been out of action since that time nursing a hand injury, but if the timing works out a fight with Bisping could be just what the doctor ordered.

Currently, UFC 152 only has one confirmed main card fight with former welterweight and lightweight champion B.J. Penn returning to action to face Canadian upstart Rory MacDonald.

The addition of Bisping could be a big boost to the UFC’s return to Toronto come September.
