In a live chat with fans via Yahoo! Sports and MMA Weekly this past week, “The Count” was asked about a potential return to 205 pounds and he had a very interesting response:
“One hundred percent. I think about it every time I want to eat pizza and can’t. But seriously, I do think about it, I was 15-1 at 205 pounds but 185 pounds is where I should be right now.”
Of course, Bisping will be taking on Brian Stann on the UFC 152 main card later this month (September 22, 2012) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in a bout with serious middleweight title implications, so he’s likely not considering making the leap anytime soon.
