There might have been a new and improved Cung Le stepping into the octagon on Saturday, but Michael Bisping (pictured) made the 42-year-old look battered and bruised by the time he left the cage.
There were plenty of questions surrounding Le’s revamped physique entering the scrap, but if the veteran kickboxer was on something illegal, it didn’t matter.
Bisping was essentially in control of the fight from the beginning until the brutal end, finishing Le off via TKO at :57 in the fourth round.
Following the victory, Bisping called out Luke Rockhold, then said he’d be looking for a title shot after that. Bisping has alternated between wins and losses over his past seven outings and hasn’t posted consecutive Ws since December 2011.
UFC Fight Night 48 took place Saturday inside CotaiArena in Macau, China.
