Anderson Silva Wants Michael Bisping Rematch In Manchester
Following their epic encounter in London back in February, Michael Bisping has since claimed UFC gold by sensationally knocking out Luke Rockhold and Anderson Silva is now seeking a rematch.
Bisping and Silva fought out an instant classic back in the O2 Arena after a grueling five-round fight as the British fighter got the nod. The Brazilian has called out the newly-minted UFC middleweight champion but feels he won't accept because he's "afraid", the former reigning kingpin has even stated he'd fight him in his hometown.

Silva was forced out of his homecoming fight in Curitiba at UFC 198 through injury, as the 41-year-old has failed to register a win inside the octagon since 2012 which suggests he doesn't have much leverage for these demands.
As for Bisping, he's reiterated his desire to make the maiden defense in Manchester with late October against Dan Henderson being speculated, though nothing official.
