Leites vs. Mousasi to Co-Headline in London

The UFC middleweight division will remain in the spotlight in London's O2 Arena on Feb. 27, as the main event of Anderson Silva vs. Michael Bisping will be joined by an intriguing co-main event featuring veteran contenders Thales Leites vs. Gegard Mousasi.

UFC VIP Experience Packages are still available for the event, which will air in its entirety exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS, the UFC's digital streaming service.

Ranked tenth in the world at 185 pounds, Brazil's Leites has won five of six bouts since returning to the UFC in 2013, and the former world title challenger hopes to begin a new winning streak when he squares off against the Netherlands' Mousasi, a ninth-ranked contender who defeated Dan Henderson and Costas Philippou in 2015.

The UFC also announced Thursday that the bout between Jimi Manuwa and Nikita Krylov has been scrapped due to a Manuwa injury.
