Michael Bisping vs. Dan Henderson

This past weekend, the UFC hit Manchester, England, for UFC 204. The card was an action packed one that saw UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping make his first successful title defense over Dan Henderson in what was ultimately Henderson’s final fight before retiring. While Henderson dropped Bisping several times early in the fight, Bisping’s volume of significant strikes earned him a unanimous decision win.
