Michael Bisping wasn’t one of the fighters immediately effected by the shuffling of the deck when UFC 151 was cancelled, but just like anyone else, when asked about the situation, he has an opinion on the matter.

When speaking about UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ decision to turn down a short-notice fight with Chael Sonnen in order to save the UFC 151 event, Bisping, however, has the qualification of being a fighter that has stepped up when called upon at the last minute. In fact, he faced Sonnen on short notice at UFC on Fox 2 when Mark Munoz, Sonnen’s original opponent withdrew due to injury.

“I have no problem with Jon Jones. Jon Jones is a fantastic fighter, but I think the sign of a true champion is stepping up,” said Bisping on a recent edition of UFC Ultimate Insider.

“You could say this is an easier fight than Dan Henderson. So I for one am quite puzzled as to why he wouldn’t take the fight.”

Bisping also went on to talk about his upcoming UFC 152 fight with Brian Stann, as well as declaring the one fighter he’s lost to that he would really like to  rematch. Check out Bisping’s UFC Ultimate Insider interview below.
