The middleweights could face off in April…
Fox Sports reports that a middleweight bout is in the works between Michael Bisping and Tim Kennedy. The fight will is being targeted to headline The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Canada vs. Australia. The fight card is set for April 16.
In addition, Michael Bisping told BT Sport that the UFC has offered him the fight.
Bisping stated: "I was cleared to fight by my doctor. My doctor wrote a letter to the UFC, clearing me 100%. The UFC very kindly offered me a fight against Tim Kennedy. No bout agreements are signed as yet, but unfortunately for me the UFC want to do some more testing to cover their side of things. They don't want anything to go wrong with my eye," Bisping told BT Sport's Beyond the Octagon earlier this week. So I've got to do a visual field test, that should be taking place pretty quickly, I'm assuming. I want to get it done ASAP and get this fight locked away."
