Michael Bisping - UFC on Fox 2Michael Bisping may have received the news he’s long waited to hear, but he still has to get another win before he can celebrate.

The former Ultimate Fighter winner and top ten middleweight is on the cusp of a shot at Anderson Silva and the UFC middleweight title, if he gets through Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX in January.

UFC President Dana White confirmed on Saturday following the end of the TUF 16 finale post fight press conference that Bisping would “probably” get the next crack at Silva should he beat Belfort in his next fight.

Bisping has long rallied for his shot at the UFC middleweight title, and with Silva currently on the shelf awaiting word on his next fight, the brash Brit appears next in line.

Of course next in line is still a ways off from a guaranteed shot at the belt because Bisping still has to go through Vitor Belfort, and that will be no easy task.

If he is successful however, it could set up a huge middleweight title fight between the greatest champion the UFC has ever known and one of the top fighters at 185lbs, and pound-for-pound one of the most magnetic personalities in all of MMA in Michael Bisping.

First things first, Bisping faces Vitor Belfort in Brazil at UFC on FX 7, and then if he’s victorious then he can start celebrating his potential title shot.
