Michael Bisping enjoys the preparation work that comes with being a UFC title contender.
Now, it will pay off for “The Count,” as he has been tabbed to face Luke Rockhold at UFC 199 on June 4 on short notice. Bisping was announced as the replacement for Chris Weidman, who suffered a neck injury in training.

Bisping was referring to a training session in which he states he got the better of Rockhold when he was still Strikeforce champion. Their first actual fight went to Rockhold via second round submission two years ago.
