Michael Bisping lays down the gauntlet to Nick Diaz after UFC London win

Tom Victor

Michael Bisping has no plans to take it easy after his most recent victory.

The British fighter, undefeated on home soil after getting the better of Anderson Silva at the O2 Arena, seemingly has his sights set on another big matchup.

He may well get the title fight he so desires, but another option – according to Bisping’s Twitter account at least – is a meeting with none other than Nick Diaz, the last man to lose to Silva before the Brazilian’s positive drugs test saw the result overturned.

Diaz, whose brother Nate is preparing to take on Conor McGregor at UFC 196, took aim at Bisping in the immediate aftermath of UFC London.

But Bisping can give as good as he gets, whether inside or outside the Octagon, and is ready for the Californian.

Once Diaz returns from his drugs ban, that is.
