The UFC website has officially confirmed the long-rumored match between Ultimate Fighter 3 rivals Michael Bisping and Matt Hamill. For a while there, Ken Shamrock was rumored to be Bisping's opponent, but the previous rumor that Hamill would have the fight came true.

The main event of the show scheduled for the O2 Arena in England on September 8th will be UFC Light Heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and PRIDE Middleweight (and Welterweight) champion Dan Henderson. The event is being dubbed "champion vs. champion" and some rumors insist the fight will be a title unification bout.

More on the UFC 75 card as news comes in.

Nice to see Bisping and Hamill is finally going ahead! I just hope Hamill has learned how to box since TUF, or he will be in for a shoeing.

Hamill looked to be a serious contender on TUF3. He showed great wrestling skills, but really had no other ground game and v ery little to no standup. He has had a lot of time to build up these skills and Bisping will certainly put them to the test.

Killer match up, If Hamill has improved his stand-up and his counter strike's leading for the takedown I think he could ground and pound the shit out of Bisping. I respect both fighters but I believe that's what might happen.


...GSP ROCKS...
