Michael Bisping Says Lyoto Machida Is “Not Unbeatable” and “Rampage Could Definitely Do It”


Michael Bisping understands how skillful Lyoto Machida can be in the light heavyweight division, but is confident that his Wolfslair training partner Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has the tools to take away his belt.  Although Mauricio “Shogun” Rua is the #1 title contender at this point, Bisping feels that Rampage would be the best fighter out there to break Machida down.  The British middleweight contender even told us that he once wanted to take a crack on Machida back in 2007, but that just never happened for various reasons.  In the end, he respects Machida’s style but feels that “nobody in this sport is unbeatable.” 

Here’s the full snip from Michael Bisping himself:

“Machida looks great right now he’s finally stopping people. He’s not taking a lot of damage and he’s looking very, very impressive. He’ll be a tough fight for anyone but I’m sure we’ll help Rampage put together a good game plan when he comes to fight him. He is very, very good and is a tough nut to crack but he’s certainly not unbeatable by any stretch of the imagination — Rampage could definitely do it. I actually asked the UFC if I could fight Machida after I fought Elvis Sinosic in Manchester [in 2007]. I fancied fighting him but it didn’t happen for one reason or another — but what I’m trying to say is that nobody in this sport is unbeatable. If you come in with a great game plan and study his fights, everyone has got weaknesses.”
