One of the most iconic moments in UFC history came when Dan Henderson absolutely floored Michael Bisping with an overhand right that left the Brit out cold, before raining down one final blow to the chin in order to “shut his mouth.”
It was also seven years ago. Now that Bisping is the surprise UFC middleweight champion after stepping into the main event of UFC 199 and knocking out Luke Rockhold, fighters are lining up to get a shot at the belt. Including an almost 46-year old Dan Henderson.
According to Ariel Helwani, Henderson and Bisping have verbally agreed to a rematch at UFC 204, currently scheduled to take place October 8 in Bisping’s hometown of Manchester, England. Henderson has never won a title in the UFC, despite being one of the most decorated fighters in the history of MMA in other organizations, most notably PRIDE and Strikeforce.
The UFC haven’t officially announced the bout yet, but it sounds like the deal is all but done.
