UFC 204 hits the Manchester Arena on Saturday October 8. Fighting for revenge in front of his home crowd is UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping, as he battles his old foe Dan Henderson. When the two first met at UFC 100, it was ‘Hendo’ who scored the brutal knockout victory. ”The Count’ went on to win the championship against Luke Rockhold at UFC 199, and an unlikely rematch was set almost immediately. Although ranked outside the top 10, Henderson gets one final chance at UFC gold before calling it a day.
Former champion in two weight classes Vitor Belfort hopes to bounce back from the TKO loss he suffered at UFC 198, but he faces a big challenge in Gegard Mousasi. ‘The Dreamcacther’ has found his form in recent fights, and ‘The Phenom’ gives up eight years in age. Ovince St-Preux battles Jimi Manuwa, heavyweights Stefan Struve and Daniel Omielanczuk collide, with featherweights Mirsad Bektic and Russell Doane opening the main card.
