ufc 75 michael bisping vs matt hamill
The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 3 light heavyweight winner Michael Bisping will take on Matt Hamill at UFC 75, according to Ticketmaster.com.

The two were supposed to meet in the semifinals during that season.

However, Hamill was hospitalized after his unanimous decision win over Mike Nickels. He was forced to withdraw from his next bout — and a date with Bisping in the Octagon — because of the injury.

Here's the snip from Ticketmaster.com:

"... The full [UFC 75] card is yet to be confirmed, however one fight has been signed that has the entire country's attention - Great Britain's own Michael ‘The Count' Bisping will face Matt ‘The Hammer' Hamill in a rematch from The Ultimate Fighter 3. This will be the toughest challenge that Bisping has faced yet."

Hamill called out Bisping after his win over Rex Holman at UFC 68 in March. Bisping responded to the "TUF 3 dropout" in kind.

Clearly, there will be some tension at the O2 Arena on September 8 in London, England.

Let's hope it's a better fight than the trash talking/signing.
