Michael Bisping joins FUEL TV as UFC analyst

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to FUEL TV...

You know what UFC on FUEL TV needs? More Bisping!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight motormouth, Michael Bisping, will bring his British charm to the FUEL TV airwaves as the network's latest mixed martial arts (MMA) analyst, following his successful one-off last weekend to cover "Silva vs. Stann."

Steph Daniels has it straight from the horse's mouth:

"I just left my manager's office and I just signed the contract. I'll be a regularly featured analyst on FUEL TV. There's a lot of down time in between fights, so this allows me to be productive. I had a really great time last week and the producers liked me, so they offered me a contract. I think the next time I'm due back is in three or four weeks. I'm not sure how often I'll be on, but it should be pretty regularly, because I'm close to L.A. This does not mean any interference with my fighting career. I've still got a lot of time left in me. I just turned 34 last week, and I see myself going for another eight years, until I'm 42."

That means fellow analyst Chael Sonnen now has someone to play with.

Bisping, locked in for the next 24 months, is not expected to miss any time away from the cage, starting with his UFC 159 co-main event against Alan Belcher next month at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, and could fight until he's 42!

Who's ready for eight more years of "The Count?"
