10:46 AM ET 01.04 | UFC middleweight Costa Philippou is riding high after his TKO victory over rising contender Tim Boetsch at UFC 155. "It's huge. Beating a top five UFC fighter with four straight victories and not very many people go four straight wins in a row. I have to say one of the few guys that I'm five in a row right now, and not many people can say that in the UFC in any weight class. I'm on top of the world right now," Philippou said. The question for him and the middleweight division is what lies ahead. Michael Bisping is likely to get a title shot with a win over Anderson Silva, which is just fine by Philippou. He has his eyes on a different middleweight match-up. "I still need some time to recover from my fight, and some time off to relax, but I'm definitely looking at the Brian Stann/Wanderlei Silva fight. I'd like to fight one of those guys if possible," he said.
