Warring middleweights finally get to lock horns in the middle of the octagon.
After years of deriding the other and their respective skills, Michael Bisping and Alan Belcher will finally get to settle their differences when they meet in the co-main event at UFC 159.
The slanging match between the the two has escalated in the weeks counting down to the match, with the pair nearly coming to blows at the press conference.
UFC president Dana White had to step in between the two as they mouthed off at each other.
Both men will be desperate for a win having lost in in their respective last trips to the octagon.
Bisping was knocked out by Vitor Belfort in the second round as part of their bout earlier this year as the main event their own UFC on FOX event.
The last time ‘The Count’ won consecutive fights was in 2011 with a win against Belcher being crucial if the 34-year-old wants to be considered for a title shot again before the end of his career.
Belcher also has the memory of defeat last time out, after going down to Yushin Okami at UFC 155 late last year.
Before that unanimous decision loss, Belcher had been on a impressive four-fight winning streak which saw him pick up wins against the likes of Patrick Cote and Wilson Gouveia.
