Denis Kang looking to make a 'major statement' against Michael Bisping at UFC 105

"I’ve wanted to fight Bisping ever since I came to the UFC. He’s got a big name, and he is usually in good fights the fans care about and I think I will beat him so, obviously, he’s someone I looked at as a great fight for me and my career. Winning this fight against Bisping will end the year on a big high. I don’t see how he beats me. I hit harder than he does, I think I am faster and have better submissions. My wrestling is better than his. He is very good at avoiding submissions, so we will have to see how it goes. However I beat him, I am looking to make a major statement."

– Denis Kang talks to UK's Telegraph 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?
