Bisping vs. Kennedy targeted for April 16th


Michael Bisping and Tim Kennedy have been verbally sparring in the media and Twitter probably more so than any two other fighters have before. Now, it looks like the two with finally square off in the Octagon, once Bisping passes one small hurdle:

Sources close to the situation confirmed the bout to FOX Sports on Saturday, but the fight has not been signed nor have bout agreements been issued for one major reason.

"I was cleared to fight by my doctor. My doctor wrote a letter to the UFC, clearing me 100%. The UFC very kindly offered me a fight against Tim Kennedy. No bout agreements are signed as yet, but unfortunately for me the UFC want to do some more testing to cover their side of things. They don't want anything to go wrong with my eye," Bisping told BT Sport's Beyond the Octagon earlier this week.

"So I've got to do a visual field test, that should be taking place pretty quickly, I'm assuming. I want to get it done ASAP and get this fight locked away."

Sources have confirmed that the UFC is targeting the middleweight bout for the April 16 card, but again it all depends on Bisping's health before the fight can be signed.
