Quoteworthy:

"To say I'm happy would be an understatement -- the pressure I felt since my last fight was just unbelievable. Obviously, I have a family I have to provide for, so a few losses in the UFC and your out. This is my passion, this is my dream. So I was very worried coming into this fight because he is a tough opponent, but I want to beat people like that, otherwise I don't belong here. He caught me with a stupid shot again, but I felt comfortable ... even on the ground. I was never in any danger of being submitted.... He's a good opponent who I took care of rather nicely."

Michael Bisping is back, but was he ever gone? Don't answer that. What's important is that "The Count" came up big last night when it mattered most, battling back to stop Denis Kang in their middleweight showdown at UFC 105: "Couture vs. Vera" at the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena in Manchester, England. He got dropped early, which more than likely had fans at saying "here we go again" because of his infamous highlight-reel knockout loss to Dan Henderson back in July. This time, however, "The Ultimate Fighter" 4 winner shook it off and notched perhaps the biggest win of his career -- two straight losses would have been detrimental on so many different levels. So who's next ... Vitor Belfort or not so fast?
