The UFC continues to shuffle their summer lineup, as it was revealed today that the middleweight bout between Michael Bisping and Tim Boetsch has been removed from the UFC 148 fight card.
MMAWeekly first reported the news.
The match up between Bisping and Boetsch has not been cancelled, though. It’s being rumored that the 185ers will be bumped up to the UFC 149 fight card, which is scheduled to take place just weeks after UFC 148.
UFC 148 will take place on July 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and recently saw the unexpected addition of the middleweight title fight rematch between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen, which had been scheduled to main event UFC 147.
UFC 149 is slated for July 21 at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and will mark the first time that the UFC has held an event in the province. The switch from UFC 148 to UFC 149 for the Bisping-Boetsch bout is not yet official, but all signs are pointing to that being the case.
