Bisping vs Mousasi and more added to UFC London

ufclondon2016

The UFC makes a much-welcomed return to the British capital on 27th February 2016, and this morning, the first three bouts for the event have been unveiled.

No. 7 middleweight contender Michael Bisping will return to fight on home soil for the first time since 2010 as he takes on No.8 Gegard Mousasi at the O2 Arena in Greenwich, London. “The Count”s last fight at the venue saw him walk away with not only the victory, but also the Fight of the Night bonus, so he’ll be keen to repeat such successes.

Also carded are rising UFC featherweight talents Mike Wilkinson and Makwan Amirkhani, as well as a big battle at 155 pounds for Northern Ireland’s Norman Parke who’ll be entering the Octagon with Rustam Khabilov.

It is important to note that currently the positioning of these fights across the card are not yet revealed. The UFC’s EMEA branch still have a number of bouts to disclose.
