"Everything is falling into place. It's just clicking, and I'm loving it. I just look at guys, and something says I want to fight them. It's just instinct I guess. It's just pure luck that this fight came up, and they thought of me. I still have four weeks and I'm in good shape now. This isn't short notice at all. It's twice as long as any training camp I get. I'm playing leapfrog right now. I think I opened up a lot of eyes with that [Belcher] win, and now I get to fight another guy who is very well known, who's got a great reputation and has never been stopped. A win over Bisping and I jump another few notches on the ladder. Right now I'm loving how I'm getting matched up.... He's just a well-rounded fighter. I think we match up very well. I have a lot of respect for him. It's not like he's a bad guy or anything, but I think it has potential to be a wicked fight.... I love to put on an exciting fight. I'm an entertainer. I'd rather put on an exciting fight and lose a close decision than have a boring grind-out that I win. Nobody likes to lose, but I want to have that marquee fight."

Jason Day -- who just stopped Alan Belcher at UFC 83: "Serra vs. St. Pierre 2" on April 19 in his Octagon debut -- realizes the huge opportunity before him when he takes on Michael Bisping at UFC 85: "Bedlam" in London, England, on June 7. Day replaced Chris Leben, stepping up to take on the popular British fighter in front of a hostile United Kingdom crowd. A win for Day would be huge.
