This summer’s fight lineup continues to change, with MMAWeekly reporting that the middleweight tilt between Tim Boetsch (15-4) and Michael Bisping (22-4) has been removed from the UFC 148 fight card.
Currently, there has been no reason revealed for why the bout was pulled from the fight card. The match up remains intact, however, but it is also unknown which event will become the bout’s new host. Rumors have the fight bumped up just one event to UFC 149, which will take place at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Canada on July 21.
Boetsch is riding a three-fight winning streak, having most recently scored an improbable comeback victory by knockout over former number one contender Yushin Okami at UFC 144.
Bisping will be looking to rebound from a narrow unanimous decision defeat to current number one contender Chael Sonnen, which many thought should have been ruled in Bisping’s favor.
UFC 148 is scheduled to take place on July 7 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and will feature the long-awaited rematch between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen.
