Michael Bisping sees Robert Whittaker as a 'more worthy contender' for his title than Yoel Romero

    Michael Bisping believes Robert Whittaker has a bigger claim at fighting for his title than current number one contender Yoel Romero.

    The middleweight champion was expected to fight Romero this year until it was announced in March that Bisping would instead face the returning Georges St-Pierre.

    The British fighter later claimed he would give Romero an immediate title shot after he defeated "GSP" before slamming the Cuban for suggesting an interim title fight.

    Following Robert Whittaker's impressive win over number three ranked middleweight contender Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza, Bisping praised the Australian who called him out following the fight.

    "Robert Whittaker looked great, the kid is on fire, the kid is doing well," Bisping said on his podcast. "Nothing but praise for Robert Whittaker there, good footwork, decent takedown defense, we've seen him knock people out before and of course, he got the job done [against Jacare]."

    "He called me out on the microphone immediately after and of course, he should do that. I'm the champion and you should want to fight the champion. Fair play to him. Listen, I've got no qualms fighting Robert Whittaker. Let's just make that abundantly clear right now because there are some websites that are like 'Bisping hasn't responded'."

    However, Bisping then said that the 26-year-old was a more worthy contender for his belt than Romero.

    "I'm responding right now because Yoel Romero is a dirty, lying cheating scumbag," he added. "If they want to do Whittaker after I've beaten GSP, we can."

    If you compare each one's performance against Jacare, it's not even close who the more worthy fighter is...

    I am becoming a Bisping fan based on his ability to troll the fuck out of everyone.

    I'd enjoy watching Bisping get iced by Whittaker.

    Just when you think you can't hate Bisping more, he does this.

    Yoel has fully got Mike shook, period. Bisping has fought plenty of juicers, but he knows that Romero will hurt him and retire him if they meet.

    I cannot think of a more undeserving champ who has ducked top opposition like Bisping has. Worst champ in the MW division's history.

    He is right and Whittaker is a tougher matchup. Yoel would get picked apart against Bisping. Whittaker is the only guy at MW that has a chance against Bisping.

    It's likely never going back to normal. I had the same thing done and I have very little usable vision from that eye. May as well bank a few more million before calling it quits.

    Rockhold trilogy is best fight at MW. Would love to see Luke get a win and rematch Bisping.

    Rockhold needs to come out of hiding and beat a top contender first. Either Whittaker or Mousasi and i dont like his chances against either.

    I'd give the nod to both of those.

    Weidman is out of the picture so no hematch needed as of now and Luke won decisively anyways.

    Maybe even have Rockhold vs Yoel if need be.

    Either way yes Luke needs to get back already. Love him or hate him the division benefits from him being active. He's a legit threat to all of them.

    Yea luke is legit, interested to see how he bounces back tho. If Yoel is going to take a fight tho it should be against Whittaker. I think Rockhold vs Mousasi is an interesting fight stylistically.

    Great interview, I agree with basically everything they discussed. This is the version of Bisping I've been a fan of before.
