Gegard Mousasi, who was originally scheduled to meet Michael Bisping on this card, will be looking to bounce back following a drubbing at the hands of Uriah Hall in 2015.

Mousasi, who enjoyed a great deal of success in Strikeforce, has not been able to replicate his success in the UFC. Mousasi, who is still fairly young, has a tremendous number of fights under his belt already, which means that his time to make a run at the title may be running short.

Gegard Mousasi is the current favourite to win the fight, as they are listed at -310 to win. Thales Leites, on the other hand, is listed at +240, which makes them the underdog.

The fight between Gegard Mousasi and Thales Leites will take place in the Middleweight weight class.
