UFC middleweight contender Michael Bisping is a lot of things to a lot of people, but no one can deny that he's a shrewd businessman. He understands exactly how to make the most money in MMA, and has done very well for himself despite never even fighting for a title in his career to date. In a recent online chat with Yahoo Sports, Bisping was asked about another much-debated topic in the business of MMA - superfights (via MMA Weekly):

"It is a business and I think Anderson vs. GSP would be astronomical numbers," said Bisping. "I think Jones vs. JDS (Junior dos Santos) would be awesome too. Everyone wants to see champ vs. champ."

Anderson Silva vs. Georges St. Pierre appears to be closer than ever to going down, but Jon Jones vs. Junior dos Santos is pretty far off. Nonetheless, Bisping gave his prediction for each fight,, and a possible bout between Anderson and Jones:

"I think Anderson beats GSP and Jon Jones; and JDS beats Jones."

With Bisping usually pushing the idea of himself facing Silva, it's nice to see him acknowledge that a bout with GSP is the bigger fight. I don't agree with either of his predictions, but it makes for a fun debate nonetheless.
