Yang Jianping (6-3-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and Ning Guangyou (3-2-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who were scheduled to fight in March at the TUF China Finale, ultimately were forced off the card after Jianping suffered an injury.

However, UFC officials announced the tourney final has been rescheduled for UFC Fight Night 48, which takes place Aug. 23 at The Venetian Macao’s CotaiArena in Macau.

The event, which is expected to stream on UFC Fight Pass, features a middleweight headliner between Michael Bisping (24-6 MMA, 14-6 UFC) and Cung Le (9-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC).

Jianping and Guangyou both make their official promotional debuts at the show.

On “TUF: China,” Jianping submitted Fu Changxin and earned a decision win over Yao Zhikui to advance to the final of the eight-man bracket. Guangyou knocked out Shih Liang and Rocky Lee.

The latest UFC Fight Night 48 card now includes:

  • Michael Bisping vs. Cung Le
