The rankings have been thrown out the window when it comes to the main event of this weekend’s (October 8, 2016) UFC 204 from Manchester, England. Instead, revenge has taken over as newly crowned 185-pound champion Michael Bisping will attempt to avenge one of the most iconic knockouts of all time in a rematch against No. 13-ranked Dan Henderson.
Back at UFC 100 in July 2009, Henderson blasted Bisping with a right hand that will live on forever. Fast forward to present day, and Bisping is coming off of a shocking knockout victory over Luke Rockhold that made him the undisputed champion. Henderson, on the other hand, sits at age 46 and has said this will be the final fight of his legendary career.
Both fighters are clearly at different points of their respective careers then they were at when they met the first time. With that being said, let’s take a look at five reasons why Bisping will destroy Henderson this time around.
