Sorry Michael Bisping fans, ‘The Count’ has been forced out of his scheduled fight with Robert Whittaker at UFC 193.
The news was announced during Wednesday’s UFC Tonight. Bisping will be getting surgery on his elbow and will be out of action for a few weeks. It’s apparently not very serious, but it is enough to keep him off of the Melbourne, Australia card.
At the time of the report, there wasn’t an announced opponent for Whittaker, but since then we’ve learned that Uriah Hall will be stepping in to save the day, according to the UFC’s Twitter account. Hall of course just came off that insane win over Gegard Mousasi at this past weekends UFC Fight Night: Japan, where he landed a spinning back kick, flying knee combo that led to the finish in the second round.
Are you guys excited to see Hall get another fight right away?
