  2. The moment Bisping won...


    UFC president Dana White: "Anderson looked really good tonight for a 40-year-old guy in a five-round fight who has fought once in two years.

    "Bisping has never won a world title but he has been around here for a long time. Bisping comes to fight. He never backs down. 

    "It is one of the reasons so many people love to watch him fight and respect him."

    Mike Gibson: What did I say?!? :-) Bisping will earn the decision.

    Sprout: I had it 48-48 with Anderson 10-8 in the 3rd. But great job Bisping.


    Silva did not touch on his future in the post-fight interview 

    Addressing his fans back home, he said: "Brazil - what can you do?  You saw the fight. I thought it went differently. I thought the mission was completed. It was not."

    The crowd surely played their part in Bisping's victory. What a spectacle this was for the neutral.


    Blood pours down Michael Bisping's face as he talks about the greatest night of his career.

    He tells Dan Hardy: "I wanted this fight my entire life. You guys give me the power, you guys have been in my corner the whole time - thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    "Things were said between me and Anderson before the fight but I worshipped this guy when I was younger. Anderson, you cannot measure the respect I have for you.

    "I did this for my family and I also did this to represent Great Britain."

    What a win. The biggest of his career. Will he get a title fight next?
