It was not the quick turnaround Michael Bisping wanted, as Kelvin Gastelum knocked the former middleweight champion out in the main event of UFC Fight Night 122.
The card took place from Shanghai, China and the Mercedes-Benz Arena, airing live on UFC Fight Pass Saturday morning in North America.
Gastelum, who was scheduled to meet Anderson Silva, landed in the first round to finish Bisping. Earlier this month, “The Count” lost the belt to Georges St-Pierre.
In the co-main event, Li Jingliang finished Zak Ottow, with Wang Guan, Alex Garcia, Zabit Magomedsharipov, Kenan Song, Yan Xiaonan, Song Yadong, Shamil Abdurakhimov, Gina Mazany, Rolando Dy and Cyril Asker all picking up victories.
