Bisping injured Cung Le‘s right eye in the second round giving the veteran middleweight fighter an opportunity to finally take out his opponent in the 4th round with a swarm of punches and kicks.  Taking place at the Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena both the main and preliminary cards for UFC Fight Night 48 aired exclusively on UFC’s online streaming service, UFC Fight Pass.

Bisping made it clear he still wants a title shot by telling the audience, 

“I want to be a world champion, and I know I have to back it. This is backing it up… I’m beating Luke Rockhold, and then I’m winning the title.”

Meanwhile Cung Le was generous with respect and humility as he told the audience, “After the first round, I couldn’t see, and I couldn’t mount much offense… I gave it my all, but he was the better man tonight.”

While most of the night’s fights were clear finishes or unanimous decisions, some disagreement between the judges split decision results in the first two preliminary bouts created an uproar among audience members and online viewers.  Unbeknownst to the audience, Dana White took quick action to remedy the situation, ensuring a solid outcome for the rest of the night’s fights.
