UFC's Michael Bisping stakes claim to Strikeforce MW title

Mark Nolan

Michael Bisping tells MMA Uncensored that after sparring with Strikeforce champ Luke Rockhold, the belt should be his.

UFC Middleweight contender and notorious s**t-stirrer Michael Bisping went on Spike TV's MMA Uncensored last night and naturally made some outrageous remarks. MMA Mania captured the most flagrant:

"Luke Rockhold? By all accounts he and Lorenz Larkin should fight and the winner of that fight -- if not both of them -- go over to the UFC. Are they gonna come over and be number one contenders? I don't think so. You're in Strikeforce, come over to the UFC and earn your place. Let me put it like this: I've sparred with Luke Rockhold recently and let's just say I'm the unofficial Strikeforce champion. Sorry Luke, but these are the facts."

The injured Rockhold won't be defending his title against Lorenz Larkin at SF's final show in January. Expect Rockhold to get his chance against Bisping in the Octagon sometime in 2013. Bisping fights Vitor Belfort in January in Brazil.
