Michael Bisping's face was in an awful way the day after his UFC 204 triumph over Dan Henderson
Michael Bisping will be sporting the battle scars from his most recent UFC win for quite some time.
'The Count' didn't make it to the media room following his UFC 204 victory over Dan Henderson in the wee hours of Sunday morning.
While he came out on top in the main event in the Manchester Arena, there was no question who had come off better in the damage stakes as Bisping's bruised, bloodied and battered face showed just how much adversity he had to battle through to get his hand raised in front of his home crowd.

Henderson came close to finishing Bisping on more than one occasion and found massive success with his overhand right in the opening pair of rounds.
But Bisping required every ounce of the champion's spirit that he undeniably possesses and got the judges' nod for his showing in the championship rounds.
But he will be certainly feeling the effects of the win, judging by the series of photographs he posted to social media in the 24 hours since he walked out of the Octagon with his hard-defended belt in hand.
