"Hopefully pretty soon. The knee is healing up nicely. It's been three weeks since the operation, and I have full mobility. It feels good to start training again. I was speaking to Joe Silva, UFC matchmaker, quite recently, and I'm hoping to fight, I believe it's UFC 152, the 22nd of September, in Toronto. A couple of potential match ups. One being Brian Stann -- I know he's got a shoulder injury, so I'm not sure if that will make it or not -- but, I'd like to fight Brian. He's an incredible fighter and certainly somebody who would move me towards a title shot. The second one is Alan Belcher. Alan Belcher's somebody that's been calling me out for, seems like, forever now, and to be quite frank, I'm sick of it. So, Alan Belcher, if your balls are big enough, call Joe Silva, and let's do it!"

-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Michael Bisping was a guest co-host on FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight," where he gave mixed martial arts (MMA) fans an update on his injury recovery process, as well as what the future may hold for him. According to "The Count," it's likely that he will make his return at UFC 152 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on Sept. 22, 2012, a card that once looked like it was going to be headlined by the rematch between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez, before reports surfaced that the fight would probably not take place on that date. After losing the Heavyweight title fight, UFC 152 could certainly use the addition of Bisping vs. Stann or Bisping vs. Belcher. It looks like it's up to the"intestinal fortitude" of "The Talent" and Joe Silva's willingness to put the fight together. Which fight would you Maniacs rather see?
