UFC 204: Michael Bisping Survives The “H-Bomb” to Retain The 185 Title
By FCF Staff
Although Dan Henderson dropped Michael Bisping two different times tonight at UFC 204, the legendary fighter failed to add the promotion’s 185 title to his resume.
Henderson battered and bloodied Bisping early on with his feared right hand, but the rugged vet was able to survive and battle back. Rounds three, four and five saw Bisping win more of the striking exchanges, and he was awarded the unanimous decision win.
After the bout, the 46 year-old Henderson confirmed that tonight was the last time he would be stepping into the Octagon.
In the co-headliner, Gegard Mousasi outscored Vitor Belfort from the start and finished the Brazilian star with ground-and-pound strikes in round two.
