Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) comes back to London, England after a two-year hiatus for a Fight Pass-exclusive card, emanating from inside The O2 Arena on Feb. 27, 2016, which features a Middleweight headliner between longtime staples of the 185-pound division Anderson Silva and Michael Bisping.
With the leading mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion putting an emphasis on bringing top talent and exciting fights to the Fight Pass digital streaming service, this match-up pitting “The Spider” against “The Count,” who will be competing in front of a loyal crowd, is sure to be the most exhilarating bout the service has seen yet.
In order to prepare fight fans, as well as hype up the compelling narrative prior to the highly anticipated headliner, UFC has released a couple of full fight videos showcasing the dangerous skill-sets of Silva and Bisping.
First, we have Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar from UFC 153 in Oct. 2012.
Unfortunately, that would be the last official victory of Silva’s professional career as the Brazilian has tallied an 0-2-(1) record over his last three contests.
Lastly, witness one of Bisping’s most entertaining outings, which came against Japanese Judo ace Yoshihiro Akiyma at UFC 120 in Oct. 2010.
As easy as that bout was on the eyes, I don’t think Bisping will want to go blow-for-blow with the proficient Muay Thai machine Silva.
MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC Fight Night 82 fight card on fight night (click here), starting with the Fight Pass “Prelims” matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET, followed by the remaining under card balance on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, before the FOX Sports 1 main card start time at 10 p.m. ET.
