“Because Tim Boetsch is coming off a great win over Yushin Okami, it just made more sense and was the more appealing matchup,” Bisping today told MMAjunkie.com Radio. “It’s also a tougher matchup for me, but I want to win that next fight and stake a claim to that title shot. I think beating Tim Boetsch rather than Cung Le gives me more grounds to do that.”

“He’s looked great, and he’s had some good wins,” Bisping said. “As I said, he had a huge KO of Okami, who was recently the No. 1 contender. I think that puts him pretty high up there in the rankings, and those are the guys I want to fight.”
