MICHAEL BISPING is back and raring to go as he faces Kelvin Gastelum in China on Saturday.
The 38-year-old dramatically lost his middleweight title at UFC 217 in New York, getting choked out by Canadian legend GSP in the third round.
Anderson Silva was meant to be Gastlum’s opponent, but Bisping bravely stepped in when the Brazilian failed a drugs text.
The Count’s coach, Jason Parillo says 26-year-old Gastelum will be a tougher challenge than GSP was.
The 14-3-0 American’s stand-up game is strong, and will challenge the 6ft 1in, who is 12 years the Brit’s junior.
What time will it start?
THE fight takes place on Saturday November 25 at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai, China.
It’s a reasonable time for once, given Shanghai is eight hours ahead of the UK.
Seven preliminary match-ups kick-off the action at around 8.45am in the UK.
The main card action will begin at midday UK time, with the main event starting at around 2.30/3pm.
