Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the UFC Fight Pass digital network this weekend (Sat., Feb. 27, 2016) when UFC Fight Night 84: “Bisping vs. Silva” kicks off from O2 Arena in London, England. MMAmania.com’s Patrick Stumberg continues the UFC Fight Night 84 “Prelims” party with the second (and final) installment of a two-part under card preview series.
The waiting was probably not the hardest part.
After years of campaigning for the fight, Michael Bisping will finally get a chance to square off against former Middleweight champion Anderson Silva in the main event of UFC Fight Night 84, which takes place this Saturday afternoon (Feb. 27, 2016) inside O2 Arena in London, Engalnd.
The UFC Fight Pass-only show will also see Gegard Mousasi and Thales Leites look to put their recent struggles behind them, while Francisco Rivera squares off with Brad Pickett in a terrific Bantamweight scrap.
The whole thing, nine “Prelims” undercard matches included, can be found on Fight Pass. We gobbled down the early appetizers yesterday right here. Today, we ingest the rest of the dish.
145 lbs.: Makwan Amirkhani vs. Mike Wilkinson
Makwan Amirkhani (12-2) — currently the only man to defeat super prospect Tom Duquesnoy — has been more or less flawless in UFC, where he’s scored two finishes in less than two minutes combined. “Mr. Finland” began his tenure in the promotion with an eight-second knockout of Andy Ogle, then followed that up with a rapid submission of Ultimate Fighter: Latin America competitor Masio Fullen in Germany.
He has submitted nine opponents overall.
Mike Wilkinson (9-1) scored one of 2014’s biggest upsets with a one-punch knockout of Swedish sensation Niklas Backstrom, earning a “Performance of the Night” bonus in the process. Injury kept him out of action for all of 2015, which makes this his first fight in 15 months.
