Michael Bisping battered and bruised Cung Le en route to a fourth round stoppage victory in the main event of today's (Sat., Aug. 23, 2014, UFC Fight Night 48: "Bisping vs. Le" showcase from the CotaiArena in Macau. By the time the bout was over, Le's mug looked more like hamburger instead of anything resembling a human face. Click here if you don't believe me (fair warning: it's ugly). The fight started even enough, with both fighters feeling our their range and getting down their timing. The tide turned when Bisping landed a hard punch directly on Le's eye. It did enough damage that Cung mistakenly thought it was a poke though the replay showed it was a clean shot. From there, he was operating with only one functioning eye and that one had a cut near it about two rounds in. Finally, Le wilted without proper eyesight and "The Count" took advantage, earning the finish in the fourth frame. So, once again, Bisping on back on the road to being a contender at 185-pounds. We'll see if he ever gets there. For a complete recap on the fight click here, and for complete UFC Fight Night 48 results and coverage click here.
