Michael Bisping asks for world title shot after beating Brian Stann at UFC 152

Michael Bisping asks the UFC to grant him a world title shot after beating Brian Stann on points in Toronto on Saturday night.

Michael Bisping has insisted that he should be next in line for a shot at Anderson Silva for the UFC middleweight title after beating Brian Stann at UFC 152 on Saturday.

The British fighter earned a unanimous points victory over Stann in Toronto, and feels that he has earned the right to challenge Silva.

He said: "I always try to push the pace, I've never been a natural athlete, I just want this so bad.

"This hunger for a title shot isn't going away, come on the UFC, step up, hook a brother up."

Victory over former US Marine Stann was Bisping's 23rd career victory.
