EXCLUSIVE: Michael Bisping vs. Denis Kang to headline UFC 105
MMABay can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that the main event at UFC 105 on November 14th in Manchester, England will be contested by Wolfslair MMA Academy star, Michael “The Count” Bisping and Canadian sensation, Denis Kang.
A source in Canada, the country where Kang is currently based, told MMABay that the bout has been agreed to by both parties and the UFC are set to swiftly issue bout agreements in the coming days.
Bisping, “The Ultimate Fighter” winner turned coach, was within touching distance of a title shot before Dan Henderson’s heavy right hand derailed his plans at UFC 100 last month. He will now look to get his title hopes back on track in his own back yard of Manchester, a stone’s throw from his training camp.
As for the Canadian veteran, Kang, he is even in his UFC career at 1-1. After putting behind him his UFC 93 disappointment at losing to Alan Belcher, Kang went onto decision Xavier Foupa-Pokam at UFC 97 in his home country of Canada.
The UFC have swiftly moved to replace MMA legend, Wanderlei Silva in the main event after the Brazilian underwent facial surgery that didn’t go as expected. The result is the experienced Kang who has gone 4-4 in his last eight outings.
