    Default The UFC Fight Night 48: Bisping vs. Le weigh-ins took place early Friday morning U.S.

    The main event features two prominent middleweights that are nearing the end of their chances to get in the UFC title hunt. Michael Bisping has perpetually been one or two steps away from a title shot for years. Cung Le is a former Strikeforce champion, but he's only fought three times since making the move over to the UFC nearly three years ago. The last time Le fought was against Rich Franklin, nearly two years ago in Macao.

    “It's very special for me (to fight in Macao). It's like my second home,” said Le after stepping off the scales, adding that despite being 42 years of age, he has no immediate plans of walking away. “I'm a martial artist first. I love to compete. I'll do this as long as I can.”

    Although the two fighters jawwed at each other a bit during their staredown, Bisping was confident, but complimentary after weighing in.

    “I promise you tomorrow night, you're going to see the best Michael Bisping ever,” he declared. “I respect Cung Le, but tomorrow night, I'm gonna bring it, 100 percent. Next year the belt is mine, make no mistake.”

    The co-main event pits Tyron Woodley against Dong Hyun Kim in a pivotal welterweight bout.

    UFC Fight Night 48 is tailored to the local audience in Macao, so it airs on UFC Fight Pass for North American audiences beginning at 6:30 a.m. ET on Saturday.

    Cung Le don't look so roided up in the weigh in pics... Maybe it was the lighting...

    And the truth is that he was jacked when he was younger and then was very publicly a junk food junkie for a number of years recently. So, although the current environment of the sport makes us raise an eyebrow, I don't think we can jump on it being unnatural. Looking forward to seeing how he performs and looks tomorrow.

    You do realize Cung is an action movie star? He probably has a great nutritionist, as well as a great trainer to keep him in shape between his fighting camps. Guy has to be in top condition to perform the stunts he does.

    ^^^ Yes I know all of that.

    However, even with a great nutritionist and a great trainer, it takes tons of hard work and effort to look like that.
    Roids or not, he is in amazing shape, and that is something very respectable and admirable, specially at his age.
