Michael Bisping at UFC on Fox 2UFC middleweight Michael “The Count” Bisping seems to be on everyone’s radar.  Following Yushin Okami’s UFC on Fuel TV 8 win over Hector Lombard, Okami said he’d like to fight Bisping next.

“Join the back of the line is all I’m going to say,” responded Bisping during the UFC on Fuel TV post-show following the event.  “Everybody seems to call me out at the moment.  I’m happy with that.  It means I’m going to have a job for a long, long time.”

Okami is on a three-fight win streak and is currently ranked one spot below Bisping on the UFC Rankings at No. 4.

Bisping is scheduled to face Alan Belcher in the co-main event of UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen on April 27, but he is open to a fight with Okami at a later date.

“I’m fighting Alan Belcher and all my attention goes to him,” said Bisping.  “Yushin is an incredible opponent, and of course I’d like to fight him some day. I think I can beat him.  I’ll just throw that out there.”

Okami holds two wins over Belcher.  The two met at UFC 155 in December with Okami won by unanimous decision. The outcome was the same as when the two fought several years ago at UFC 62.

Bisping is coming off a knockout loss to Vitor Belfort.
