UFC Fight Night Rockhold vs Bisping fight card updates

The UFC will return to Australia on November 8 for the first time in nearly a year. Sydney’s Allphones Arena will host UFC Fight Night Rockhold vs Bisping.

At the press conference last week, the rivalry between headliners Luke Rockhold (14-2) and Michael Bisping (25-6) threatened to boiled over as both fighters look to stake their claim to challenger status in the middleweight division.

The fight card includes TUF Smashes alumni Robert Whittaker (12-4) moving to middleweight against American Clint Hester (11-3) and young gun Jake Matthews (7-0) vs Vagner Rocha (11-3).

Former middleweight Hector Lombard (34-4-2) was noticably absent from the press conference and remains unmatched.

The most recent addition to the undercard is China’s Jumabieke Tuerxun (14-2) versus American Patrick Williams (7-4), as reported by MMA Kanvas.

Also, Richie “Vas” Vaculik (10-2) will face Ray “The Tazmexican Devil” Borg (7-1) in a flyweight contest, as reported by Brisbane’s Courier Mail.
