Scheduled to headline a UFC Fight Pass card on Feb. 27, "The Spider" competes in London for the first time since an epic reverse elbow knockout over Tony Fryklund to defend his Cage Rage title in 2006.
"I would love this fight to be in Brazil, but it’s going to be a pleasure to come back and face Michael Bisping at the sold out O2 Arena in London," Silva told UFC.com. "It’s been a while since I fought in London for the last time, and I’m really excited to be back. I believe this is going to be a big test so I can come back and go after a title shot."
Silva and Bisping are undefeated when fighting in London. The Brazilian went 4-0 in the city from 2004 to 2006, defending the Cage Rage 185-pound title three times. "The Count", a former Cage Rage light heavyweight champion, scored three of his five wins in London as a UFC fighter.
