Michael Bisping @Bisping
Got some good news today!!!!!!…… Can you guess what it is?. Let’s just say I’m gonna step my training up

After an extended Twitter bicker, Tim Kennedy and Michael Bisping will fight at “The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Team Canada vs. Team Australia Finale” on April 16 in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

Bisping has been recovering from surgery for a detached right retina, and his return potentially in question, making Kennedy's efforts a little theoretical. Further, Bisping said Kennedy need higher caliber wins than Rafael Natal and Roger Gracie.

But UFC president Dana White confirmed the matchup today after Bisping’s optometrist cleared him to return to fight.
