Bisping got back into the win column with an exciting decision win over C.B. Dollaway last month at UFC 186. Prior to that, he was stopped by top contender Luke Rockhold. He also recently dominated Cung Le in Macau, China.

Leites has looked great since his return to the promotion, and is coming off a submission win over Tim Boetsch that earned him an extra $100,000 in bonuses. Last August, he stopped Francis Carmont via knockout.

UFC Fight Night 72 takes place live from the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland on July 18.
