October 16, 2010 will see the UFC return to the O2 arena in London, England for UFC 120. Headlining this event is a middleweight fight between the UK’s Michael Bisping and Japan’s Yoshihiro Akiyama. The fight was long rumored to take place, and it has now been officially confirmed by the UFC.
Bisping (19-3) is coming off a majority decision against Dan Miller at UFC 114 in May, and Akiyama (13-2), is coming off a tough submission loss to Chris Leben at UFC 116 earlier this month.
The fight between Bisping and Akiyama will headline UFC 120, with Britain’s Dan Hardy (23-7) looking to come back strong against his loss to Georges St-Pierre by fighting Carlos Condit (25-5) in the co-main event of the evening.
