UFC president Dana White says Michael Bisping (23-4) will get his shot at UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva if he gets past Vitor Belfort (21-10) next month. UFC 155 saw two other contenders fall by the wayside, namely Tim Boetsch and Alan Belcher. Bisping has gone 9-3 in the UFC's MW division, with losses to Dan Henderson, Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen. White told ESPN "The Count" would finally get his chance with a win at UFC on FX 7 in Brazil.
"In that division, there were so many guys coming up. A couple of those guys lost tonight. If Bisping can beat Belfort - that's a tough fight for Mike - he deserves the shot at Anderson."
