UFC 78: Houston Alexander vs. Thiago Silva added; Bisping vs. Evans designated main event

Thomas Gerbasi of UFC.com is reporting that the UFC has designated the match between undefeated light heavyweights Michael Bisping and Rashad Evans as the main event of UFC 78 on Nov. 17 in Newark, NJ.

Gerbasi also revealed that Houston Alexander will be back in action at UFC 78 and will be taking on Thiago Silva. Silva is 11-0 and considered one of the most promising young light heavyweights in the division. Meanwhile, despite being 35, Alexander is viewed by many as a breakout star coming off the heels of two devastating first round TKOs in his first two UFC fights.

According to the website, the televised portion of the card will be comprised of Bisping vs. Evans, Alexander vs. Silva, Hector Lombard vs. Karo Parisyan, Spencer Fisher vs. Frankie Edgar, and David Terrell vs. Ed Herman.
