Silva vs. Bisping would have actually been a serviceable PPV main event.

I am not injured, and I will remain on the @ufc London card as co-main event. My manager is working with the UFC to find new opponent.

Wasn't Bisping literally just smack talking Weidman saying he beat washed up guys? Now he's fighting the guy Chris beat twice? 😂🇺🇸 joke
