UFC officials announced the bout yesterday. They also confirmed that a Featherweight bout between Makwan Amirkhani and Mike Wilkinson and a Lightweight bout between Rustam Khabilov and Norman Parke have been added to the card. Bisping (27-7 MMA, 17-7 UFC) is currently riding a two fight win streak with wins over CD Dolloway and Thales Leites. Prior to that, the Englishman was submitted to Luke Rockhold, who fights Chris Weidman in an attempt to capture the UFC Middleweight crown at UFC 194. Bisping is 3-2 in his last five with the other loss coming to Tim Kennedy, and will be looking to make one last run at the title when he faces Mousasi in London. Mousasi (37-6-2 MMA, 4-3 UFC) hasn't really found his top form in the UFC yet and is coming off a devastating knockout loss to Uriah Hall, it was the first time the Dutchman had been knocked out and he will be looking to rebound with a statement against Bisping. "The Dreamcatcher" is 4-3 inside the octagon and has been finished twice in three losses. UFC Fight Night 83 takes place inside the O2 Arena on Feb. 27. The bout order has not been decided yet.
