UFC 199: Start time, TV schedule and what to read for Rockhold vs. Bisping

UFC 199 takes place Saturday night inside The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. It features Middleweight champion Luke Rockhold, who will attempt to defend his 185-pound belt against Michael Bisping in the pay-per-view (PPV) main event of the evening. Rockhold was supposed to rematch Chris Weidman -- who he defeated to win the strap late last year -- but "The All-American" had to withdraw on just two weeks notice after suffering an injury during training. Rockhold already owns a win over "The Count," a dominant second round submission back in Nov. 2014.

UFC 199's PPV main card, which will start promptly at 10 p.m. ET, will feature four other matches. In addition to the main event, Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz will attempt to defend his 135-pound belt -- and "settle the score" -- against long-time bitter rival, Urijah Faber. UFC 199 will also feature a pivotal 145-pound scrap between top-ranked division contenders Max Holloway and Ricardo Lamas, with a future Featherweight title shot possibly on the line.
