Britain’s Michael Bisping defends his middleweight championship against American Dan Henderson at this weekend’s UFC 204 in Manchester where he will look to gain revenge for his brutal knockout defeat at UFC 100.
The fight sees the two veteran MMA fighters collide more than seven years after their initial encounter, which Henderson claimed with a devastating overhand right and sickening follow-up elbow in the second round.
This time around, Bisping has promised to knock Henderson out, and he has the added incentive against the 46-year-old in that he will be making the first defence of the middleweight championship in front of his home fans.
Bisping, known as ‘The Count’, won the title for the first time in his career when he knocked out Luke Rockhold at UFC 199 in June on the same night that Henderson took apart Hector Lombard on the undercard. The two
have plenty of history against one another, but Bisping has insisted that he will “pick Henderson up and take him for a beer” – after he knocks him out.
