Michael Bisping - UFC on Fox 2The day Michael Bisping has been waiting for is now only one fight away.

Following an eventful UFC 155 that saw two other middleweight contenders go down to defeat, UFC president Dana White confirmed that Bisping will get the next shot at middleweight champion Anderson Silva with a win at UFC on FX 7.

“If Bisping wins, he’ll get the shot,” said White on Saturday night.

Both Tim Boetsch and Alan Belcher lost at UFC 155, which locked down the top contender spot for Bisping.

First things first, Bisping has to get through former UFC champion Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX 7 in Brazil, but now he knows with a win, a title shot will be awaiting him in his next trip to the Octagon.

Ever since he dropped to 185 pounds, Bisping has been gunning for a middleweight title shot, but on a couple of past occasions that a top contender spot loomed overhead, he wasn’t able to pull the trigger and reach the peak of the division.

Now with a title shot guaranteed with a win in Brazil, Bisping is back in the same situation and he’s promised a great performance against Belfort. If he delivers, his shot at Anderson Silva and the UFC middleweight title awaits.

Bisping faces Belfort in the main event at UFC on FX 7 on Jan. 19 in Brazil.
