Michael Bisping: Denis Kang will be 'a good test'

Props: Fighter's Only

Quoteworthy:

"I think he’s a good test. I wanted to fight someone decent after Henderson because as I said, I had a great camp and I feel improved as a fighter in all departments. I wanted to prove that to the world but I didn’t, I went out there and got knocked out. So for my next fight I wanted a top name and get right back up there. I didn’t want to take a step down in opponent. Originally I was going to fight Wanderlei [Silva] as I’m sure you know, but he had surgery so it wasn’t to be. They came up with Denis Kang and I felt great. He is well respected, very good skill set, very good all-round fighter. MMA fans that are knowledgeable, that have followed the sport outside the UFC, will know him well and will know he is a tough test for anyone."

England’s-own, Michael Bisping, talks about his pending showdown against Denis Kang at UFC 105 from the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena in Manchester, England, on Nov. 14. "The Count" is coming off perhaps one of the most memorable knockouts in UFC history, getting demolished by a crushing Dan Henderson right hand/flying forearm combination at UFC 100 back in July. He was also on the winning end of perhaps one of MMA’s most controversial decision’s in recent memory when he squeaked by Matt Hamill at UFC 75: "Champion vs. Champion" in Sept. 2007. He’s certainly had his fair share of nights to remember, but can he ensure that this one against Kang ends in his favor?
