UFC Quick Quote: Denis Kang eager to beat Michael Bisping's ass in Manchester

"I jumped at the opportunity as soon as it was put in front of me.... I think I am gonna beat his ass ... whether he won his last fight or lost it. He is a good fighter, he has got cardio and he knows how to win a fight. He knows how to ride the momentum, you know what I mean? I wouldn’t say he is a standout in any area but he is decent in all areas and he has a good head for the game, which can take you a long way.... I always want to finish the fight but you know, he’s only got two losses and he went the distance with Rashad Evans. But I am going to go for the KO like Hendo!... To me he is not 'cocky Michael Bisping,' he is just a sack of flesh and bones across the Octagon that I am waiting to pound on."

-- Denis Kang talks to Fighters Only magazine about the opportunity to make a name for himself inside the Octagon in a high-profile middleweight fight against Michael Bisping at UFC 105 from the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena in Manchester, England, on Nov. 14. Kang was a big free agent pick up for the promotion last year; however, he stumbled in his debut at UFC 93 earlier this year, losing to Alan Belcher via second round submission (guillotine choke). He rebounded with a unanimous decision win over Xavier-Foupas Pokam at UFC 97 four months later back in April. In short, Kang has yet to demonstrate to UFC fans what made him a star in Japan and Korea fighting in the Pride FC and Spirit MC organizations. Can he do it in Manchester against "The Count" in highlight-reel fashion or will he be just another step for the Brit on his journey back to title contention?
