Brad Tavares wanted a top-flight opponent heading into today’s UFC on Fox 29 card, and he earned the right to call out another top-flight fighter after dismantling Krzysztof Jotko in the third round via TKO.
Tavares earned his fourth-straight victory inside the Octagon and used a victory over a Top 15 opponent to call out former middleweight champion Michael Bisping in his post-fight interview. He even proposed a date for the bout at UFC 226 on July 7 in Las Vegas.
However, Bisping seemed less enthused by the prospect of fighting the Hawaiian.
Michael Bisping: "I don't need anything. I certainly don't need anything from you, Brad Tavares. You couldn't shine my shoes. There's never ever anything that you have that I need" #UFCGlendale— Damon Martin (@DamonMartin) April 15, 2018
Tavares (17-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) picks up his first decision win since 2011 and will look to climb the ladder in the UFC’s 185 pound division.
