Michael Bisping recently declared he lost interest in taking on former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, thanks to “The Spider’s” failed drug test.
But “The Count” is changing his tune, as he now says he is open to a showdown against the Brazilian bomber because at the end of the day, it’s still Anderson Silva.
“I thought, ‘You know what, screw it.’ I’ll put my judgement to one side, and I’ll take the fight because it is Anderson Silva,” Bisping told MMA Junkie. “He is a legend, and I want to have the biggest fights possible. But generally, that is the rule I’m going to stick to.”
For the most part, Silva has long maintained his innocence. If you ask Bisping, however, Silva is far from innocent. In fact, the brash Brit doesn’t feel it’s the first time Silva has used performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs).
It’s just the first time he’s been caught.
“I don’t think that at 39 years old, having the career that Anderson Silva had, I don’t think you make the decision at 39 years old to try this new thing called steroids. I think he must have been on the juice the whole time,” he said.
