Michael Bisping's next fight will be at UFC 127, which takes place at Acer Arena on Feb. 27 in Sydney, Australia.

“The Count” released the news in his video blog, posting the announcement to his Web site Thursday morning. The Brit also gave an indication that he would fight in the show's main event, possibly against Jorge Rivera.

“Obviously a certain someone who was supposed to fight recently but didn't has been talking s--t about me...says we're going to fight soon. I don't know if that is to be the case or not, but I’m keen to find out exactly who my next fight is going to be,” said Bisping.

Bisping is referencing two reports that ran last weekend regarding the potential fight. The possibility of the matchup first surfaced in Germany during UFC 122, when Rivera's opponent Alessio Sakara withdrew from their fight at the last minute to gastroenteritis. On Sunday, Rivera's manager spoke with MMAWeekly regarding Rivera fighting Bisping in the near future.

I think Elvis Sinosic's schedule is clear.

Unless the rest of this card is completely lights out I don't see myself shelling out the coin to purchase this one.

If that's the main event, it better be free... my god.

I don't really like the match up that much, is Rivera a step up from Akiyama?...

Can't say I'd be anymore thrilled to see Griffin or Sanchez as a main event at this point.

Good god, please no. If you're going to put him on the main card, at least match him up with somebody that will KO him so we can get an exciting fight.

Also, Rivera? What happened to this?

This. I expected something big not a step down i don't believe he'd beat any top 5 fighter but at least it's a step forward. I don't understand why Bisping has taken this fight? if he wins he's in the same place if he loses he loses LOTS of credibility.

It is all coming together now...

UFC merged with WEC only to feed THE BISPING. They are gonna start feeding him bantamweights.

Seriously... I would be stoked to hear Bisping will never headline another card ever, unless it is Hendo-Bisping 2 or A. Silva-Bisping.
