UFC 199 needed a new opponent after Chris Weidman pulled out just over two weeks prior to his rematch against Luke Rockhold for the middleweight title.
Michael Bisping, a man who almost never turns down a fight, took to Twitter as an alternative. UFC President Dana White listened, and Bisping will now have an opportunity to avenge the only fighter he’s tapped out to.
Rockhold and Bisping have had their fair share of words tossed at each other, and this one should be a doozy.
Rockhold (15-2) has won five straight fights and will look to keep that streak up when he meets Bisping (29-7) in the Octagon on Saturday, June 4 from The Forum in Los Angeles, California.
