The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was put into a tough spot when the mixed martial arts promotion lost its main event match up for the UFC’s upcoming debut in Shanghai, China. However, on just weeks notice, Michael Bisping stepped up to headline the event.
UFC Fight Night 122 goes down Nov. 25 inside the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China. The UFC’s big debut in Shanghai was initially set to see former middleweight champion Anderson Silva go toe-to-toe with Kelvin Gastelum. However, Silva was later pulled from the event due to a failed drug test.
