“The rematch betwen Hamil and I was being planned for Nov 17 in New Jersey. Unfortuntely Hamil is unable to fight as he is having knee surgery. I am dissapointed as I was really looking forward to fighting him again. That said, myself having a torn posterier cruciate ligament in each of my knees for my last 3 fights I can understand why he’s having it.
Wishing you a speedy recovery matt and hopefully we can “get it on” soon.On a side note it gives my big toe a chance to heal as I stubbed it on the way o the octagon. Stay tuned…”
— Michael Bisping has announced that his anticipated rematch with Matt Hamill, which was scheduled to take place at UFC 78, has been postponed indefinitely after Hamill went under the knife to repair a knee injury. No word on whether Bisping will fight in the interim since the rematch will likely not occur until mid-2008.
