Clitheroe’s Michael Bisping will fight for the 24th time under the UFC banner on Saturday as the organisation makes its debut in Scotland.

The contest will mark the 36 year old’s first contest back in Britain in over four-and-a-half years.

Bisping goes in to the fight on the back of victory over C.B. Dollaway in Montreal, Canada, in April.

Meanwhile Brazilian Leites, with a record of 25-4-0, has earned eight successive victories, his last five under the UFC, with his latest against Tim Boetsch in Las Vegas in January.

The main card will be aired on FOX Sports 1 from around 6 p.m.
