Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Michael Bisping had a hard time believing his 185-pound title eliminator fight against Brian Stann, set for UFC 152 on Sept. 22, 2012 at the Air Canada Center in Toronto, was not the pay-per-view (PPV) main event.

Well, it's right there in black and white (and red).

Joseph Benavidez will headline opposite Demetrious Johnson in the main event of the evening because unlike "The Count," these two 125-pounders will be vying for a UFC title, capping off the promotion's mini-flyweight tournament which began earlier this year.

Should be fireworks.

Speaking of division gold, former 170-pound straphanger B.J. Penn will try to derail the hype train that's carried Rory MacDonald into their welterweight match-up, while "Ares" is hoping to make an example of the fading legend and position himself for a future title shot.
