UFC Michael Bisping

On Monday morning, the planet’s most prestigious mixed martial arts promotion announced a middleweight brawl between Michael Bisping (Pictured) and Tim Boetsch for UFC 148.

Bisping is looking to rebound from a decision loss to Chael Sonnen at “UFC on FOX 2.” The January defeat snapped “The Count’s” four-fight winning streak.

Boetsch has posted a perfect 3-0 mark since dropping to the 185-pound division. “The Barbarian” is fresh off a spectacular comeback victory over former top contender Yushin Okami at UFC 144.

The July 7th event takes place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada. A bantamweight title tilt between champion Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber is expected to headline the festivities.

Here are the athletes slated to appear in the show:

Michael Bisping vs. Tim Boetsch

Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le

Urijah Faber vs. Dominick Cruz (UFC Bantamweight Champion)
