TORONTO -- Middleweights Michael (The Count) Bisping and Alan (The Talent)Belcher will meet in the co-main event of UFC 159 on April 27.

Both men are coming off losses and looking for a win to get back in the 185-pound title hunt

Bisping (23-5) was stopped by Vitor (The Phenom) Belfort on a televised card Jan. 19 in Brazil while Belcher (17-6) lost by decision to Yushin Okami at UFC 155 on Dec. 29.

"Ok I'm back in ASAP like I wanted," Bisping tweeted. "To eradicate the mistake I made last week. April 27th vs Belcher. Back on track!! Make no mistake!"
