Another excellent middleweight matchup has apparently been added to UFC 148. Yesterday, it was Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le. Today it's a Brit versus a Barbarian. MMA Weekly has the news:

Less than 24 hours after announcing the addition of Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le at UFC 148, UFC officials on Monday confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that Michael Bisping would face Tim Boetsch on the July 7 event in Las Vegas, as well.

Bisping (22-4) is coming off a close loss to Chael Sonnen at UFC on Fox 2, a bout that a lot of people thought he won. Boetsch (15-4) picked up the biggest win of his career at UFC 144 with a comeback TKO stoppage of Yushin Okami, and stayed undefeated at 185. Boetsch had been vocal in recent days about wanting to fight Bisping, and it appears that he was granted his wish. The winner of the bout will most likely be in contention for a possible title shot down the road.

The card is expected to be main-evented by a UFC bantamweight title bout between Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber.
