Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping believes in his game plan coming into his next UFC 110 bout against Wanderlei ‘The Axe Murderer’ Silva. Although Silva is well known for his past knockout victories in Pride, Bisping strongly feels that he’ll be able to take out ‘The Axe Murderer’ with most of the Muay Thai training he’s been receiving at his British MMA gym over at Wolfslair.
From Michael Bisping:
“I’m not interested in (Silva’s) old fights. I don’t watch to watch him KO people, because I don’t want to give him too much respect. Besides, we have a team of coaches who study the opponent and come up with the fight plan and strategy. I’ll train in the Wolfslair until two weeks before the fight. We have a great group of guys here, and we have brought in some Muay Thai guys and wrestlers from the United States, and we are getting all bases covered. This is a real winnable fight for me….I’m planning on one thing and one thing only: going out to Australia and beating Wanderlei Silva up. I’m not going out there for a holiday or to make up the numbers. This is the biggest fight of my life and I can’t accept anything but victory. I know what I’m up against and I know exactly what I have to do to beat him. I don’t take fights just for the paycheck. That’s not what I’m about. I’m taking this fight because I know I can beat Silva and because I want to keep moving towards a UFC title shot. I’m living, eating and sleeping Wanderlei Silva right now. Like Rampage did 13 months ago, I’m going to crush ‘The Axe Murderer’…”
