Michael Bisping vs. Cung Le is booked for UFC Fight Night China main event in August

UFC President Dana White announced tonight at the UFC 173 post press conference, that Cung Lee would be making his return to the cage to head line a main event in a middle weight bout against Michael “The Count” Bisping at UFC Fight Night, August 23rd in Macau, China.

Cung Le (9-2) who was a coach at The Ultimate Fighter China hasn’t been in the cage since his last appearance in 2012. Cung Le had a hard hitting knock win over Rich Franklin in the first round only 2 minutes into the fight. Le will be trying to make a three fight win streak with a win over Bisping in August.

Michael Bisping is coming off a mixed record losing 3 of his last 5 fights. Last month at the TUF Nations Finale he faced yet another disappointing loss to Tim Kennedy by decision.

UFC president Dana White also confirmed that there will be the co-main event welterweight bout between Hector Lombard and Dong Hyun Kim.
