Bisping steps in to face Gastelum in Shanghai

Anderson Silva flagged for potential doping violation pulled from UFC Fight Night 122

Anderson Silva flagged for potential doping violation pulled from UFC Fight Night 122

He has agreed to take the fight on only two weeks' notice after Gastelum's initial opponent Anderson Silva, widely regarded as one of the UFC's greatest combatants, failed a drugs test. Now, a familiar and unexpected savior steps in to save the day.

"Due to the proximity of Silva's upcoming scheduled bout..., Silva has been removed from the card and UFC is now seeking a replacement", the organisation said in a brief statement.

Gastelum's original opponent Silva was removed from UFC Fight Night 122 in China after being accused of a second potential doping violation - his first coming in 2015 - by the USA anti-doping agency earlier this week. It is still unknown at this point what Silva tested positive for, but no matter the scenario, this could forever tarnish the legend's career, and it's possible fans never see him in the octagon again if this ends poorly.

The victory in Polokwane gave the "Teranga Lions" an unassailable lead at the top of Group D and with that their second appearance at the tournament.

Bisping, who has flirted with the idea of retirement in recent times, managed to earn the praises of the masses through this act of raw warrior-esque spirit and naturally, the MMA community collectively voiced their approval at the Count's commitment to the fight game.

Just last weekend at UFC 217, Bisping was choked out by Georges St-Pierre and lost the middleweight title.

Pierre returned from a four-plus year hiatus to defeat Michael Bisping to win the UFC Middleweight Title in the main event of UFC 217.
