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.
