Michael Bisping has been on the UFC’s case for a long time now to get a shot at the UFC middleweight title wrapped around Anderson Silva’s waist. His case became all the more stronger at UFC 152 in Toronto, as he took a unanimous decision over “All-American” Brian Stann.

“I’m not the most talented person in the world, but I’m hungry and I want (the title shot), and that overpowers anything,” Bisping said after defeating Stann. “My desire to be the world champion is not going away. The owners of the organization: hook a brother up!”

Bisping isn’t lauded as the most talented fighter in the world, but throughout his time in the UFC, it’s been obvious to see that he has worked on his overall game and added bits and pieces over the years. He also has a quality that his bosses and fans appreciate, he throws caution to the wind and tries to go for the finish.

“I thought I had one obvious advantage and that’s in the wrestling department,” Bisping told reporters at the UFC 152 post-fight press conference. “I wanted to stop the guy for the crowd and didn’t just want to wrestle, but I tried for the finish and was unsuccessful.

“It’s fighting, you go out there and are going to get hit, but at the end of the first round, he did hit me with a good shot, but I took it, recovered and fought back.”

While no one is sure if Bisping will be the next in line for the title, UFC president Dana White was impressed by what he saw by the former Ultimate Fighter winner and admitted that he spoke to matchmaker Joe Silva about a match-up between the Brit and Silva.

“Me and Joe (Silva) were talking earlier about how interesting a fight between Bisping and Anderson Silva would be,” White said. “(Bisping) doesn’t get the credit he deserves, but there’s a line of guys that are next, the Middleweight division is stacked, but Bisping looked great and always brings it.”

“My desire to be the world champion is not going away,” Bisping stated. “The owners of the organization – hook a brother up!”
