UFC Quick Quote: Michael Bisping vs Brian Stann is "The real main event of UFC 152, not the flyweights"

"In my opinion, and I think in most people's, this is the main event. This is the real main event. Two big hard hitting guys. No one cares about little flyweights, this is the real main event, this is the real big fight, tune in cause someone's getting knocked out, ain't going to be me though. This is the real main event of UFC 152."

-- Michael Bisping has been publicly campaigning to get the next shot at UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva despite coming off a close split decision loss to recent title challenger Chael Sonnen at UFC on FOX 2 this past January. Despite the loss, many felt "The Count's" stock actually rose due to his ability to not only stuff many of Sonnen's takedowns but also his ability to quickly get back to his feet and outstrike the Oregonian. After an injury forced him out of his original fight against Tim Boetsch, Bisping is back and ready for co-main event status of UFC 152 later this year, but don't tell the brash Brit he's the co-main event because he already feels his fight is a bigger deal than the inaugural flyweight (125 pound) UFC title fight between Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson. At least that's what he told Fuel TV this past weekend. Do you agree, Maniacs?
