Two days after the fight had to be scraped due to a potential Anderson Silva drug test failure, the UFC has replaced the Brazilian legend with Michael Bisping who now faces Kelvin Gastelum

The surprising news comes on the heels of Anderson Silva failing a drug test and subsequently being pulled from the November 25th event, news of which can be read HERE

Brit Bisping, thirty eight years old, was last seen in action just eight days ago, losing his UFC middleweight title to the returning Georges St-Pierre third round submission in a back-and-forth encounter

American Gastelum, twenty six years of age, will also be looking to bounce back from a defeat last time out, as he is coming off a submission defeat to former divisional champion Chris Weidman last July

UFC Fight Night 122 takes place on November 25th from the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai, China and will be the UFC’s debut event in the major Chinese city
