Michael Bisping to replace Anderson Silva to face Kelvin Gastelum in Shanghai main event

It is not taking the former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping to get back on the horse.

Earlier this week, Anderson Silva was pulled from the main event of UFC Fight Night 122 main event with Kelvin Gastelum after the UFC was informed of a potential USADA anti-doping violation.

Ariel Helwani is now reporting that Michael Bisping will replace Silva in the main event.

UFC Fight Night 122 will be held on November 25, 2017, at Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai, China.
