Bisping (24-6) will be looking to rebound from the unanimous decision loss he suffered versus fellow middleweight contender Tim Kennedy in April.

Le (9-2) has been sidelined due to injuries, and hasn’t fought now since November, 2012, when he KO’d Rich Franklin.

Lombard (34-4-1) is coming off a one sided, decision win over Jake Shields in March, and has gone 2-0 since dropping from middleweight to 170.

Kim (19-2-1) has scored knockout wins over Erick Silva and John Hathaway in his last two fights, and has won fours straight.
