It will be a quick turnaround for Michael Bisping, as “The Count” has signed to face Demian Maia on January 28 at UFC on FOX 2. Bisping recently defeated Jason “Mayhem” Miller this past weekend to extend his current win streak to four.
The UFC announced the match-up earlier today.
Maia is coming off a victory over Jorge Santiago at UFC 136 that improved his mark to 3-1 since a loss to current UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva back in 2010. Bisping’s last four victims have been Miller, Dan Miller, Yoshihiro Akiyama, and Jorge Rivera.
UFC on FOX 2 will feature title-eliminator bouts between light heavyweights Rashad Evans and Phil Davis, along with middleweights Chael Sonnen and Mark Munoz. Bisping-Maia will be a featured fight on the FOX show, which will be held inside the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
