Michael Bisping got back in the win column on Saturday night with a one-sided beatdown on Cung Le

Damage Cung Le’s eyes shadowed an exciting tilt with Michael Bisping, who looked excellent en route to gaining a deserving fourth round TKO stoppage.

The tilt, which served as the headliner for UFC Fight Night 48 at The Venetian’s CotaiArena in Macau, China, saw a myriad of kicks and punches from both ends, but it was Bisping who effectively bested his Vietnamese counterpart.

Bisping’s calculated attack of combinations coupled with his Boxing prowess was the story of the first five minutes, with Le only managing to land some heavy body blows.

The former Strikeforce champ, however, suffered a nagging eye injury in the second round, after eating a stiff jab at the hands of Bisping. Le was seemingly fighting with just one good eye at that point, and struggled to come to terms with Bisping’s continuous onslaught of strikes.

Le received a brief timeout as the cageside doctor checked his eye and after being cleared to continue, the grizzled veteran managed to land a few kicks of his own.

By the start of the third round, Le’s face was an absolute mess and he seemingly became an easy target for Bisping. It was well-worth noting, however, that despite his bloodied and swelling face, Le still persevered with glaring punches and kicks.

But early in the fourth frame, the referee called a halt to the contest after Bisping’s onslaught of strikes forced Le onto the canvas, with the 42-year-old doing little to defend himself.

Bisping hence got back in the win column with the stoppage win.

Final result: Michael Bisping def. Cung Le via TKO (Strikes) at 0:57 of Round 4
