Bisping injured, out of Boetsch fight

Bisping injured, out of Boetsch fight
June 7th 2012

An undisclosed injury has removed Michael Bisping from UFC 149.

His opponent Tim Boetsch has been moved over to face Hector Lombard on the same card, as Lombard’s scheduled opponent Brian Stann has also suffered an injury.

Stann separated his shoulder this week and will be away from training for up to eight weeks; he had been due to fight Lombard in August but the Cuban judoka has now had his debut date moved forward.

Lombard vacated the Bellator FC middleweight title to move to the UFC following a remarkable run which has him unbeaten in his last 20 fights.

If he debuts in impressive fashion he could well find himself being fast-tracked to UFC middleweight title contention.

Bisping is also looking to lever himself into contention and it was thought that if he beat Boetsch he might be in line for a shot against the winner of the upcoming Anderson Silva/Chael Sonnen match.

Bisping fought Sonnen in January and lost a close decision, with a number of fans of the opinion that the decision should have gone the other way.

The win put Sonnen in line for a rematch with Anderson and the fight takes place at UFC 148 on July 7; it promises to be the biggest UFC event of the year thus far, as the match is highly anticipated to say the least.

The nature of Bisping’s injury is unknown.
