While Dan Henderson holds an incredibly iconic win over Michael Bisping, when the pair step into the Octagon tonight, it’s Bisping who will be stepping into the Octagon as the betting favorite. In addition, Bisping will have the advantage of being the fan favorite given that the fight is taking place in Manchester, England.
Henderson, who has admitted that this will be his last fight before retiring, regardless of whether or not he wins, will of course be looking to once again emerge victorious over Bisping, this time claiming the middleweight championship.
With that being said, Bisping has predicted that he will finish Henderson. In his very detailed prediction for the fight on Fight Society, he stated:
“I am one-million percent looking for a finish in this fight. When it’s all said and done, a win is a win and I’ll take it anyway I can, but I’m looking for a stoppage. I want to go out there and have a showcase performance. I feel I’m in the best shape of my career and I’m going to continue that. I want all those other (expletive) at middleweight to be like ‘I don’t know if I want to fight him actually,’” Bisping said. “I’m going to put a beating on Dan Henderson like he’s never had in his life. I’m going to make him look old. I’m going to make him look every one of those 46 years that he has on his clock. I’m going beat him to the punch.”
“I’m going to bloody him up and when it’s done, when he’s ready, when he’s beat up and doesn’t have a hope left in his body then I’m going to go in for the finish in round three.”
