"After the third victory in a row I want a little more and I think that a fight with Michael Bisping would be great. I respect him and it would be a war. I think mixed martial arts are so big in England today because of him, and I definitely want to do the same thing in Italy."
- Alessio Sakara talks to James Kimball of MMA Mania about the next step in his career.
This is honestly the first time a Sakara/Bisping fight has crossed my mind, but you put that on a European show and there's a built in storyline to it, in addition to the fact that it should be quite a fun fight to watch. For all the hate Bisping gets it isn't as though he has many boring fights, and Sakara certainly isn't one to put on a snoozer.
Mark me down as totally in favor of this fight.
Sakara also had some interesting things to say about the weight cut for his last fight and seems to want people to not discredit his role in making James Irvin look so bad as a weight cut is hard on everyone.
