#9-ranked UFC Middleweight, Michael Bisping (25-7), and #10 CB Dollaway (15-6) look to bounce back from their losses when they meet inside the Octagon at UFC 186. The middleweight bout will take place on Apr. 25 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
UFC President, Dana White, announced the fight on TSN SportsCentre Saturday night.
Bisping’s streak of alternating wins and losses was extended to eight in November. “The Count” was submitted for the first time in his professional MMA career, losing the grudge match to Luke Rockhold via second-round Guillotine at UFC Fight Night 55. The 35-year-old Englishman is 15-7 since winning the third season of The Ultimate Fighter at light heavyweight.
Dollaway only lasted sixty-two seconds with former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and middleweight title challenger, Lyoto Machida. “The Doberman” was dropped with a body kick and could not recover at UFC Fight Night 58 last month. The 31-year-old TUF 7 finalist had his 2-fight winning streak snapped, but has won four of his last six since 2012.
UFC 186 will be headlined by a rematch between TJ Dillashaw and Renan Barao for the UFC Bantamweight Championship. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will also return to the promotion when he faces Fabio Maldonado in Montreal. Rory MacDonald vs. Hector Lombard and Patrick Cote vs. Joe Riggs will also take place in April.
