UFC 204: Dan Henderson Weighs-In on Decision, Says First Round Should Have Been a 10-8
By FCF Staff
UFC 204 is officially in the books and Michael Bisping remains the middleweight champ, but Dan Henderson doesn’t believe that should be the case.
The 46 year-old legend faced Bisping in the main event of Saturday’s card, and early on, he had the British star in all sorts of trouble, as a result of his fearsome right hand. Bisping rallied back, however, and he was awarded the unanimous decision win by a 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 margin.
Following the event, Bisping spoke with FOX Sport 1, and here is what the American had to say about the scoring (quote via FOX Sports 1 press release):
“I’m a little disappointed with the outcome. I felt like I did enough to win the fight. It should have been 10-8 in the first. I felt I won the first two rounds and I thought I won the fifth. It was one of the apprehensions I had coming to fight in his hometown. I knew I did that, so I’m happy with that.”
Leading up to the event, Henderson repeatedly said that UFC 204 would likely be his last fight, and the decorated fighter confirmed his retirement after the card.
“Thank you for years and years of support.”
With the victory, Bisping avenged his 2009, KO loss to Henderson, which took place at UFC 100.
