UFC Fight Night event in Sydney Australia has a main event. Middleweights Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold finally have the fight both have been angling for.
Bisping coming off a dominant win over Cung Le, in Macau, China, has had a twitter battle with Rockhold for weeks. Bisping went so far to call out Luke after his win over Le. The Ultimate Fighter: Team Punishment vs. Team Shamrock Light Heavyweight winner, was also head coach twice in the reality series history, coaching against Dan Henderson (TUF: U.S. vs. UK) and Jason Miller (TUF: Team Bisping vs. Team Miller).

Rockhold who last entered the Octagon in April of 2014 defeated Tim Boetsch at UFC 172. Rockhold the former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion has looked good in the UFC, 2 wins via finishes.
