Coming out of the historic UFC 200 event in Las Vegas on Saturday night, there was plenty of post-show storylines that will no doubt keep MMA fans feeling full and happy for quite a while. While all the extra attention was on the sport on Saturday night, “Uncle Dana” decided to announce one more surprise gift for the die-hard fans of the sport.
Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping 2.
Their last fight, which coincidentally enough took place at UFC 100 and is still one of the most iconic images in the sports history, as the legendary Henderson dropped an all-time great “H-Bomb” on bad-boy Bisping after one of the more entertaining seasons of The Ultimate Fighter reality show.
The fans have been craving the rematch with intensity ever since Bisping managed to upset Luke Rockhold to become the UFC Middleweight Champion, and Henderson, clearly reaching the end of his fighting days, just so happens to be in a rare position where receiving a title shot despite his age and ranking, can be justified in more ways than one.
“We’re going to do Dan Henderson versus Michael Bisping,” White said on the official UFC 200 post-show on FS1 last night. “It’s a fight that the champ wants. It’s a fight that the fans want. And hopefully in Manchester. We’re thinking about doing it in Manchester, England. But that’s not signed yet.”
