With Michael Bisping's 3-week turnaround, here's UFC Fight Night 122's new poster

The UFC’s debut event in mainland China will have a pretty solid headliner, thanks to Michael Bisping.

UFC officials recently announced Bisping (30-8 MMA, 20-8 UFC), who lost his middleweight title to Georges St-Pierre (26-2 MMA, 20-2 UFC) on Nov. 4, will fight again on Nov. 26, when he meets Kelvin Gastelum (13-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) in UFC Fight Night 122’s main event.

Bisping, who’s No. 3 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA middleweight rankings, replaced Anderson Silva (34-8 MMA, 17-4 UFC), who was pulled from the event due to a potential U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) violation. He takes on Gastelum, who’s an honorable mention in the rankings, in a UFC Fight Pass-streamed bout at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai.

Here’s the official poster:

UFC Fight Night 122 is heavy on local talent, and many promotional newcomers are set for their UFC debuts.

But thanks to Bisping and his quick turnaround, the otherwise ho-hum card still has a marketable main event.

The latest UFC Fight Night 122 card includes:

  • Michael Bisping vs. Kelvin Gastelum
  • Li Jingliang vs. Zak Ottow
  • Alex Caceres vs. Wang Guan
  • Alex Garcia vs. Muslim Salikhov
  • Zabit Magomedsharipov vs. Sheymon Moraes
  • Bobby Nash vs. Kenan Song
  • Kailin Curran vs. Yan Xiaonan
  • Bharat Khandare vs. Pingyuan Liu
  • Shamil Abdurakhimov vs. Chase Sherman
  • Gina Mazany vs. Yanan Wu
  • Wuliji Buren vs. Rolando Dy
  • Cyril Asker vs. James Mulheron
