Watch Michael Bisping fight the great Anderson Silva at UFC London

Ben Kenyon

Michael Bisping is making a glorious return to Britain with a huge fight against Anderson Silva.

Former UFC champion Silva is making his return to the octagon after a 12-month suspension and faces a tough fight against the Brit.

Silva is still the UFC’s most imperious champion, defending his middleweight belt 10 times in a row.

Now 40 years old fans will be keen to see if the Spider still has the bite that made him one of the world’s most feared fighters.

He faces a 36-year-old Bisping who has always been a perennial contender in the division – but a man hungry to get that shot at the middleweight belt.


Silva is slick, dexterous and dangerous on his feet while Bisping is a relentless worker who is unrivalled in the UFC for power shots landed.

The Count claims he will finish Silva in two rounds and has got Dana White on notice that he wants a shot at the belt if he does.

Unbeaten British prospect Tom Breese will look to continue his rise through the welterweight ranks after his demolition of Cathal Pendred.

The Birmingham fighter, who told JOE he is even better than UFC rising star Sage Northcutt, will be hoping to add a third consecutive KO to his growing record against Japan’s Keita Nakamura.

Brad Pickett is also back in the Octagon in front of his hometown crowd with a tough bantamweight fight against Francisco Rivera at the O2 Arena.

If you’re not lucky enough to be Octagon-side for UFC London, there is one place you can see the fights – with the main card kicking off at 9pm.

You can watch the main card and all the prelim fights on UFC Fight Pass – with a month’s access £5.99.
