Default Chael Sonnen Wants To Face Michael Bisping Next in the UFC

Quote:
Michael Bispingís actions at UFC 127 earned him a victory, but it also may have prodded a hornetís nest. The one looking to sting the Brit next is a returning Chael Sonnen.

Still considered the top middleweight contender in the UFC, MMAWeekly.com was able obtain an email sent from Sonnen to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva requesting a fight against Bisping in the near future.

Re: Spitsbing & his tainted victory

Joe:

If you get a chance to talk with him, please mention to your idiot-in-residence Michael Spitsbing itíll be a little tougher to knee ME in the head when Iím charging at him like a runaway train and mincing him through the fence like a boiled potato, should we ever have the pleasure of each otherís company for a few (VERY few) moments in the Octagon.

Oh; and Iíd suggest to him being a little careful about spitting on any of MY cornermen, since any one of them can beat him up as badly as I can. Thanks ever so much. Hope all is well
.

When UFC 127 ended, many fans immediately started asking about a potential fight between Sonnen and Bisping, who have exchanged words in the past.

Sonnenís manager, Mike Roberts of MMA Inc., echoed the sentiments of his client, and his desire to face Bisping when he returns to action.

ďIíve had the chance to talk to Chael and he absolutely has Michael Bisping in his crosshairs and wants to fight him,Ē Roberts told MMAWeekly.com ďChael welcomes the chance to face him in the UFC and give the fans what they want.Ē

Sonnen is awaiting a return to action after a hiatus from fighting due to personal issues, but now it appears heís ready to start stirring things up, and the first person on his hit list is Michael Bisping.

The brash Brit ruffled more than a few feathers with his post fight antics when he spit in the corner of opponent Jorge Rivera after their fight ended in Australia. Bisping has also come under heavy criticism for an illegal knee strike that he landed on Rivera in the first round, although heís stated several times it was purely accidental.

Vitor Belfort also hit Twitter recently to state his desire to face Bisping.

There has been no date for when Sonnen might return to action, but a fight against Bisping might just be the fight the UFC would want for him.
Here's the article.

Later.

It would be amazing to see Bisping smash up Chael as it won't be drugged up this time.
