His opponent was not revealed.

"The Count" -- who was at the SENI '07 Combat Show with other UFC fighters suchs as Josh Koscheck and Rashad Evans -- made the announcement over the weekend.

Fellow European UFC fighter Jess Liaudin is also rumored to be on the UFC 75 fight card. And like Bisping, his opponent has not been named.
