Move over Tim Kennedy, Mark Munoz has 'unfinished business' with Michael Bisping


Michael Bisping may never win a UFC title, but he will undoubtedly retire as the call-out champion of the world (and he says 'thank you').

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight Tim Kennedy is trying to finish what the Revolutionary War started, sending Great Britain to yet another defeat by turning away Michael Bisping inside the Octagon when "The Count" finally returns from eye injury.

Get in line, buster.

Bisping is still on the Mark Munoz hit list, after "The Filipino Wrecking Machine" lost his chance to battle the brash Brit back in November. Instead, he was forced to do the dance with Lyoto Machida and let's just say somebody's toes got stepped on.

But that was then and this is now, and Munoz tells MMA Fighting he's still looking for closure.

And perhaps a title shot.

"I've always wanted Michael Bisping, not because I have any personal issues or beef with him, but he's always been at the top. We were supposed to fight, and I know Kennedy has been calling him out and wants to fight him, but I feel we've got unfinished business to take care of. I think he's been a top, perennial contender for a long time, and a win over him would definitely get me back in the mix. So, he's there. But really, I'd fight anybody in the top 10. For me, I'm a competitor. I want to get to that top. I want that title shot."

It's probably now or never.

That's because Munoz (13-4) is just a few weeks shy of his 36th birthday and has been finished convincingly in two of his last three fights. In order to secure a division title shot, he would need to string together a couple of wins over some pretty big names.

I suppose Bisping is as good a place to start as any.
