Fight fans left in awe as Michael Bisping wins brutal war over Dan Henderson
The world was in awe once again as Michael Bisping emerged victorious from a blood and guts battle with old foe Dan Henderson at UFC 204.
Bisping fought tooth and nail to defend his UFC middleweight title against the veteran American who brutally knocked him out seven years ago at UFC 100.
But the British legend got his revenge after five gruelling rounds which saw Bisping dropped twice in the first two stanzas by the H-Bomb, who was as potent and dangerous as ever at 46-years-old.
'The Count' weathered the storm and refused to give up in another back-and-forth fight in front of an electric Manchester Arena.
It almost looked like Bisping would finish Hendo in the final 20 seconds of the fifth round, but the buzzer came too soon.
But it was to be a unanimous victory for the middleweight champion in his hometown fight.
Fight fans couldn't believe what they had just witnessed and more to the point, how Bisping twice came back from the dead to emerge victorious.
Bisping is the toughest guy your likely to meet

Some couldn't believe how Bisping kept eating Henderson's only shot - the venomous overhand right...
46 years old, and Dan Henderson is still starching people with the same overhand right. #UFC204

Henderson has been hitting him with that overhand right for years now. It's so guaranteed.
