Quoteworthy:

"We have been discussing tactics for the fight, little tips and discussions about Wanderlei’s movement and shots, and Rampage thinks I will beat Wanderlei easily. He has inspired me and has kept confidence in the camp high. I have to keep my composure in this fight. We know what Wanderlei does – he throws aggressive shots with reckless abandon, and I’m psyched to put my game plan into practise. I have nothing but respect for Wanderlei, but I do believe I’m a better technical fighter and more well-rounded. I was very happy when it was announced that my opponent would be Wanderlei Silva. In fact, there was a lot of talk of it being at UFC 105, and I was delighted. I want to prove I am at this level. I made a mistake against Dan Henderson, but that is the level I want to fight at – and I want membership to that level by beating fighters like Wanderlei Silva."

Michael Bisping gets some more encouraging words from his camp as his confidence grows heading into his pending middleweight clash with Wanderlei Silva at UFC 110 from the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia, on Feb. 21. "The Count" has enlisted the help of friend and training partner Quinton Jackson for the inside scoop on "The Axe Murderer's" gameplan. "Rampage" has a three-fight history with the Brazilian, knocking him out at UFC 92 after getting clowned twice under the PRIDE banner. Will his knowledge be enough to put Bisping on top? Or is Silva going to end this one violently?
