Bisping vs Akiyama at UFC 120 in London


Michael Bisping is to face Japanese judo expert and mixed martial artist Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 120 in London in October..

It was thought that Bisping would face Brazilian Vitor Belfort, but it looks almost certain that Bisping’s opponent will be the Japanese superstar, who has been in the UFC just over a year. It will be at middleweight, 185lbs.

Bisping is coming off a unanimous decision win over Dan Miller at UFC 114, which followed a unanimous decision loss to Wanderlei Silva at UFC 110. He is 2-2 in his last four UFC outings.

Akiyama is coming off a surprise loss to Chris Leben at UFC 116 this past weekend. He had been due to fight Wanderlei Silva but the Brazilian pulled out because of knee and rib injuries sustained in training.

 Vitor was offered the fight..      Bisping accepted..    Vitor refused.  (similar to the Bisping/Marquardt situation) seems like everyone`s ducking Bisping?? credit to Akiyama for stepping up!!!

maybe we bitch because we have been waiting a year for a UK card and get this. means zero to me if its free on spike as i wanted to go and see a good event. Condit the guy who was scared to fight Daley? Thats a easy Hardy win. Hathaway fight is great thats the only one.

If that is the card I don't think I will be going. Not been a good card in London since UFC 75.
