It's been two years since Michael Bisping faced Cung Le at UFC Fight Night Macau, China, but the memory of that incredible bout is fresh in the minds of many.

Bisping ended up earning a performance bonus for his stunning TKO finish early in the fourth round.

He would later go on to become middleweight champion, and is now set to defend his title for the first time. He faces old foe, Dan Henderson at UFC 204 in Manchester, England next month.

Le never fought again after the bout with Bisping, mainly due to a failed drug test the UFC conducted in their short-lived foray into self-managed regulation. The one year suspension they issued was eventually retracted after it was shown that the testing procedure was faulty, but the damage to Le's reputation was done. The Vietnamese fighter retired after the incident and is now a major part of the class action suit against the promotion. Shortly after the fallout from this debacle, the UFC would bring in USADA to regulate their drug testing program.
