Luke Rockhold vs Michael Bisping staredown pic, video from UFC 199 media day

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held a special UFC 199 pre-fight press conference earlier today (Thurs., June 2, 2016), bringing together middleweight champion Luke Rockhold and top contender Michael Bisping as they prepare for their upcoming rematch on Saturday night (June 4, 2016) inside The Forum in Los Angeles, California.

Watch the UFC 199 press conference video replay here.

Rockhold defeated "The Count" via second round submission at the UFC Fight Night 55 event back in late 2014, but Bisping was promoted to title challenger when Chris Weidman injured his neck and was forced to pull out (more on that here).

Take a look at their most recent face-to-face encounter in "The City of Angels."

Elsewhere on the card, Dominick Cruz will defend his bantamweight title against Urijah Faber in a much-anticipated trilogy fight in the co-main event of the evening. As expected, "The Dominator" and "The California Kid" came nose-to-nose to close out today's festivities.
