Default Michael Bisping vs Alan Belcher Slated for UFC 159 Co-Headliner

A middleweight tilt between division standouts Michael Bisping (23-5) and Alan Belcher (18-7) will co-headline April's UFC 159.

ESPN.com confirmed the booking with UFC officials on Wednesday.

UFC 159 takes place on April 27 at Newark, New Jersey's Prudential Center and airs live on pay-per-view. In the main event, reigning light heavyweight champ Jon Jones will look to defend his crown against ex-middleweight title contender Chael Sonnen. Additional bouts include Roy Nelson taking on Cheick Kongo, Vinny Magalhaes locking horns with Phil Davis, and Jim Miller facing Pat Healy.

Bisping recently had his dreams of a title shot cut short at least for now after suffering a vicious knockout to Vitor Belfort earlier this month. The British standout had won five of his last six prior to the loss, including victories over Brian Stann and Jason "Mayhem" Miller.

Belcher too will look to get back on the winning track after coming up short on points to Yushin Okami last month. The defeat snapped a four-fight win streak for "The Talent", which included stoppages of Patrick Cote, Jason MacDonald and Rousimar Palhares.


Hopefully Belcher can beat Bispings ass. Should be a great fight
