Michael Bisping (22-4) and Brian Stann (12-4) will now have a chance to settle there differences in the octagon as they have been reportedly scheduled for UFC 152 in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre on Sept. 22, according to sources close to MMAFighting.com. The bout will serve as a co-main event to the inaugural bantamweight championship bout between Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson.
Bisping has been very adamant as of late in his calls for a contender fight. Unfortunately he had suffered a controversial decision loss in his last outing against Chael Sonnen in January. Prior to the loss, Bisping had taken out four consecutive, quality opponents and was in fact eying a title shot, should he had gotten past Sonnen.
Stann, unlike his opponent is coming off an impressive KO win over Alessio Sakara at UFC on Fuel in April. Prior to the victory however Stann does share a common loss. Stann suffered a second round arm triangle to Chael Sonnen at UFC 136.
As if the two newly announced bouts were not enough to make a case for a strong card, there is also the welterweight bout between veteran BJ Penn and top prospect Rory MacDonald in the co-main.
