Michael Bisping wants to fight Tim Kennedy in his next UFC bout

According to a Dec. 8 post from Bloody Elbow, Michael Bisping is eying Tim Kennedy as his next UFC opponent.

During a question-and-answer session at UFC Fight Night 33, Bisping explained why he wants to fight someone who is ranked lower than him in the UFC's middleweight division.

"Here's the thing, and the answer is very, very simple why I would event entertain a fight with Tim Kennedy. He's had three fights in the UFC against no marks, and he didn't even look that good in those fights," Bisping said. "He's been calling me out for years, and at the start I didn't want to respond to any of his tweets because it's giving him what he wants, he's trying to create a buzz about himself. But he's been going on so much, he's really driving me up the wall, and I just really, really want to punch him in the face so I might as well get paid for it. So, I might as well call the UFC, get paid, and beat him up."

Bisping also said he has some unfinished business with Mark Munoz, so that's another potential fight for him.

"In a perfect world, I want a fight that's going to propel me toward a total fight. That's still my dream," Bisping said. "The middleweight division now is absolutely stacked, so probably Jacare (Souza), (Lyoto) Machida, or (Luke) Rockhold. The list is non-stop. Mark Munoz, me and him agreed to fight, so maybe there's unfinished business there as well."

After giving it some thought, Bisping turned his focus back to Kennedy.

"Tim Kennedy, he's doing a good job of getting himself punched in the face if he carries on, so probably Tim Kennedy," Bisping said.

Bisping is currently on the mend from an eye injury that he suffered during training.
