UFC 78: Michael Bisping rematch with Matt Hamill postponed

Hamill Bisping


"The rematch betwen Hamil and I was being planned for Nov 17 in New Jersey. Unfortuntely Hamil1 is unable to fight as he is having knee surgery. I am dissapointed as I was really looking forward to fighting him again. That said, myself having a torn posterier cruciate ligament in each of my knees for my last 3 fights I can understand why he's having it. Wishing you a speedy recovery matt and hopefully we can 'get it on' soon. On a side note it gives my big toe a chance to heal as I stubbed it on the way o the Octagon. Stay tuned...."
