Henderson vs. Bisping Wiki Update Wiki

Before they served together as coaches on the ninth season of The Ultimate Fighter reality show, Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping had established themselves as two of the best middleweight fighters in the world. Henderson, the former Pride FC Middleweight and Welterweight Champion, was the first fighter to hold two championships simultaneously in a major organization. Bisping, for his part, was the first breakout star for the U.K. MMA scene. Their fight was set to take place as one of the featured attractions of UFC 100 in July of 2009.


Bisping’s talk had brought the betting lines closer as fight time neared, but he was still a moderate underdog heading into the fight. Not only was Henderson the better wrestler, he was also the more powerful striker, and was equipped with one of the best chins in the history of the sport. Majority opinion was that Bisping’s only chance to win the fight was to stick and move, and dance his way to a careful, technical decision.


But as an uneventful first round of action drew to a close and the second stanza began, instead of circling to Henderson’s right side and away from his power, Bisping increasingly ignored the advice of his corner men, circling instead to Henderson’s left side and bringing him in range for Henderson’s powerful overhand right. For a few minutes of action, Henderson whiffed on several right-hand haymaker attempts, with Bisping leaning just out of range. At the 3:20 mark of the second round, however, Henderson found his range, flooring Bisping with one of the most brutal right hooks in UFC history.


Bisping crashed to the canvas, unconscious before he hit the mat, but Henderson wasn’t finished yet. Before the referee could step in to stop the contest, an airborne Henderson landed a flush forearm to Bisping’s unprotected face. When asked if the last shot was a manifestation of his frustration at Bisping during filming of The Ultimate Fighter 9, Henderson replied in the affirmative, stating that the last hit was to “shut his mouth.” Henderson’s monster KO of Bisping was one of the best finishes of 2009, if not the decade.
