Michael Bisping UFC

Brad Penner-USA Today Sports

It looks like Michael Bisping and Tim Kennedy will finally get to settle their feud inside the cage, as it was confirmed by Fox Sports that their bout will take place in Quebec City, Quebec on April 16, 2014. This will be Bisping’s first bout since his eye injury, and he’s looking to back up all of the trash talk between him and Kennedy.

The fight has not been officially booked, but Bisping verbally agreed to the bout, so hopefully the UFC can draw up the papers and make the fight happen. If this bout is indeed booked, it’s going to be a thrilling one in the middleweight division. Both Kennedy and Bisping have exchanged heated words with each other on Twitter, so one could only imagine the type of trash talk that would develop throughout the course of their training camps.

It would hopefully boil over inside the cage, which could bring out the best in both fighters.

Bisping was last seen inside the octagon against Alan Belcher. He picked Belcher apart on the feet and ended up getting the TKO finish by doctor’s stoppage because of an accidental eye poke. Ironically, Bisping got poked in the eye himself during training, which has sent him to the sidelines. Now that he’s made a full recovery, the Kennedy bout makes the most sense. Kennedy deserves a top-name opponent, especially after his latest KO victory over Rafael Natal.

So, will Bisping and Kennedy finally settle their score once and for all inside the UFC, or will the UFC go in a different direction with Bisping? Stay tuned!

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.
