The inaugural Flyweight Title fight and the Middleweight division starts to get sorted out as Demetrious Johnson will fight Joesph Benavidez and Michael Bisping will fight Brian Stann at UFC 152 on September 22nd in Toronto. Also on the card is Rory MacDonald vs BJ Penn, so UFC 152 is shaping up to be a great card so far.
The first-ever UFC flyweight world title fight goes down on September 22nd at UFC 152 in Toronto. The four man tournament, which began in March, will culminate with Joseph Benavidez taking on Demetrious Johnson in what is sure to be a memorable bout between two gifted fighters on a historic night.
Additionally, the co-main event has been verbally agreed to as top-ten middleweights "All-American" Brian Stann and brash Brit Michael "The Count" Bisping battle it out on Canadian soil to move closer to a title shot.
The rematch between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez was originally booked for the main event of 152, but was later withdrawn without comment as to why. Dana White however did say that it "depended on dos Santos" leading people to believe dos Santos is posturing for a fight in Brazil or wants to take time off or recover from an injury.
