Michael Bisping’s Next UFC Opponent Revealed


As announced earlier today, UFC 193 will be held inside the 55,000 seat stadium in Melbourne, Australia with Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit in the main event. We can now report that Michael Bisping will be on the card, and we can also confirm his opponent.

Bisping, a longtime draw for the UFC outside the North American market, will return to the Octagon at the November 15th event against former TUF Champion Robert Whitaker.

Also scheduled for the show is a rematch of one of the best Heavyweight slugfests of all-time, as Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva will collide once again at UFC 193.
