Just one day after Chris Weidman was forced out of his UFC 199 championship match with Luke Rockhold, the UFC has found a replacement — “The Count” Michael Bisping.

The match-up was confirmed on Wednesday by UFC President Dana White.

Bisping and Rockhold fought at UFC Fight Night 55 in 2014, with the current champ earning a second round submission victory.

Bisping (28-7) is riding a three-fight winning streak, with victories over C.B. Dollaway, Thales Leites and most recently, probably the biggest victory of his career, Anderson Silva at UFC Fight Night 84.

Rockhold (15-2) lost his UFC debut to Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX 8 in 2013, but has since been undefeated. The champ is riding a five-fight winning streak with his most recent victory being a TKO over Weidman at UFC 194 to capture the gold.

UFC 199 goes down on June 4 from The Forum in Inglewood, California.
