UFC Cung Le

Sorry, Michael Bisping. The honeymoon’s over. One week after getting married to longtime girlfriend Rebecca, Bisping has to get back in the gym to prepare for his next assignment.

During Saturday’s UFC 173 post-fight press conference, it was announced Bisping will headline the UFC’s return to Macau, China on August 23 against Cung Le (pictured).

Bisping has alternated between wins and losses over his past six fights. “The Count” will be looking to bounce back from April’s unanimous decision defeat to Tim Kennedy.

Le will be riding a two-fight winning streak into the tango. However, Vietnamese-American hasn’t been seen since knocking out Rich Franklin in November 2012.

A welterweight shootout between Hector Lombard and Dong Hyun Kim serves as the card’s co-main event.

No word if the event will be made available for live viewing in America via Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 1, UFC Fight Pass or some combination of the three.
