George Roop will make a fast turnaround after his first bantamweight victory, and he'll do it against a former champion. Roop will stay at 135 pounds and meet Brian Bowles at UFC 160, sources confirmed to MMAjunkie.com.

Awesome, I'm glad Marky Mark is getting back in the cage, he looked great in "The Fighter". I think he might be wayyy too much for Roop.

Bowles is going to destroy Roop.

This is a lop sided match up in my opinion.

Maybe against a prime Bowles but he hasn't fought since 2011 and he breaks his hand every other fight.

That said Bowles probably KOs him in the first.

I was scared Bowles was going to retire or something. Thank god he is back!

I don't see much hope for Roop here unless Bowles has forgotten how to fight.

No matter what Bowles will always be the man who ended the P4P run for Miguel Torres.
