ufc 70 michael bisping vs Elvis Sinosic
The dreadful rumors that UFC light heavyweight contender Michael Bisping (12-0) will face off against Elvis Sinosic (8-9-2) at UFC 70 on April 21 appear to be accurate, according to MMAWeekly.com.

On paper, it appears to be a marked mismatch.

Sinosic, whose nickname — The King of Rock n Rumble — is perhaps worse than his career mixed martial arts record, sports a ghastly 1-5 record inside the Octagon.

In his defense, the 36-year-old Australian has been up against some of the top fighters in the game, losing bouts to studs such as Tito Ortiz, Evan Tanner, Frank Shamrock, Renato "Babalu" Sobral" and Forrest Griffin.

Regardless, the match up with Bisping is poor and does nothing to build The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season three champion as a force to be reckoned with in the 205-pound class.

At best, Bisping gets a highlight reel stoppage that is immortalized on the next "Ultimate Knockouts" DVD. At worst, he loses to a journeyman in front of a hometown crowd in Manchester, England.

Can't wait.
