Today has been a busy day of UFC 105 news. Here is what we have learned.

» Inside Fights reported that Ultimate Fighter winner Michael Bisping (17-2) will face former Pride standout Denis Kang (32-11-1).

Bisping is coming off a brutal knockout by Dan Henderson at UFC 100 & looks to rebound. Kang fresh off his Unanimous decision victory over Xavier Foupa-Pokam at UFC 97 will look to continue up the 185lb ladder. Both fighters’ are strikers so we should expect a lot of fireworks for the one. It should serve as the night’s co-main event since it takes place in Bisping’s native Manchester, England

» Fighter’s only reported that another U.K. product, Dan Hardy (22-6), will fight Korean fighter, Dong Hyun Kim (12-0-1). 

Both are coming off decision wins in their last visit to the octagon and are 3-0 in the UFC. Hardy recently defeated Marcus Davis in a close battle and a win over Kim could put him near the top of the Div.  

» Inside Fights later reported B.J. Penn (14-5-1) will defend his lightweight title against Diego Sanchez (23-2) as the night’s main event.

Penn seems unstoppable at the 155lbs where is hasn’t lost since 2002. Sanchez moved down to 155lbs. and has gone 2-0 with victories over Joe Stevenson and Clay Guida. I’m really shocked this fight is happening at UFC 105 with it on free TV, but I’ll take it.

Other fights on the card are James Wilks (6-2) vs. Matt Brown (10-7) & Damarques Johnson (9-7) vs. Peter Sobotta (8-2)
