With the release of a fresh, new UK MMA Magazine, there was only ever going to be one man with the profile to fit the bill for the first cover, and with the guarantee of a solid interview to back it up.
That man is Michael Bisping. “The Count” is the UK’s most famous mixed martial arts fighter; our first Ultimate Fighter winner and a guy that is amongst the elite of his division in the UFC. A whisker away from a title shot, he has a 12-4 record inside the Octagon, with his only losses coming to the likes of Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson.
His latest loss was a very close decision at the hands of title contender Chael Sonnen, and that’s a particular subject that is covered in the exclusive interview with Bisping inside Your MMA Magazine issue one.
Despite the loss on his record, Bisping earnt the respect of many fans that believed Sonnen would charge through him en route to a rematch with Anderson Silva. He has his championship fight set in Brazil, and “The Count” believes he knows which way it will go.
“I think Chael will out-wrestle Anderson and beat him this time, and then I’ll get the rematch with Chael considering how close our fight was.”
That would be a great scenario for the Brit, who continued:
“If I had Chael over five rounds, I’d definitely beat him. In that last fight, I’d have stopped him in the fourth for sure. He was spent after trying to submit me in that third round. Towards the end of that round I was raining down shots on him.”
The full interview is going to be available in print, and the best way to guarantee your copy is to order and subscribe online today. Pre-orders will be through your letterboxes before the week is out, so don’t hear the news second hand, get your copy as soon as possible.
