Michael Bisping will look to defend homecourt when he faces Yoshihiro Akiyama in the night’s featured contest. After blasting out of the MMA gates with a perfect 14-0 record, Bisping has gone a mediocre 2-2 over his last four contests. Nonetheless, the Gambling Gods have pegged him a 2-to-1 favorite against Sexyama.
Akiyama was submitted by Chris Leben at UFC 116 in his last outing. Although he entered the Octagon with much hype in 2009, his 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.
