Thankfully, UFC 119 is behind us and we can look forward to another lukewarm anticipated event when “UFC 120: Bisping vs. Akiyama” rolls around on October 16th. The good part about this show is Spike TV will make it available for free via same-day tape-delay.
UFC 120 takes place inside the O2 Arena in London, England and will be headlined by a middleweight clash between Michael Bisping and Yoshihiro Akiyama.
After shooting out of the MMA gates with a perfect 14-0 record, Bisping has gone a mundane 2-2 over his last four contests. The Brit was last seen posting a unanimous decision victory over Dan Miller at UFC 114, bumping his overall mark to 19-3.
Akiyama was submitted by Chris Leben at UFC 116 in his last outing. Although he entered the Octagon with much fanfare in 2009, Sexyama’s upset loss to Leben puts him at 1-1 inside the Octagon. Back-to-back losses could have the judo specialist’s head on the chopping block.
A critical welterweight battle between Carlos Condit and Dan Hardy will serve as the card’s co-main event.
