UFC President Dana White discusses all the action from last night’s UFC 204 event in Manchester, England.
In the evening’s main event current UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping was able to outpoint MMA legend Dan Henderson on route to a unanimous decision victory.
“Hendo”, who retired from the sport following the fight, was able to drop Michael Bisping on multiple occasions and almost finished “The Count” in the fight’s opening round.
Dana White questioned the judges scoring of the main event fight but acknowledged that Michael Bisping is one tough UFC champion.
UFC 204’s co-main attraction saw former Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi take out former UFC champion Vitor Belfort via second-round TKO.
Mousasi looked very sharp in yesterday’s performance, battering Belfort in the stand-up before eventually finishing the fight on the ground.
Also on the card was a key light heavyweight bout between Ovince Saint Preux and Jimi Manuwa. “The Poster Boy” scored a nasty knockout win over “OSP”, this from landing a thunderous fight-ending punch. The performance was easily Manuwa’s best under the UFC banner. Jimi mixed in some solid body shots throughout the contest which helped lead to the highlight reel finish.
UFC heavyweight Stefan Struve continued his current win streak, scoring a second-round submission victory over Daniel Omielanczuk.
