The UFC officially announced today the fight between Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson for the middleweight belt. The fight is scheduled for October 8 in Manchester, England at UFC 204.
Bisping (29w, 7l) lives the best moment in his MMA career. Coming off four straight wins over CB Dollaway, Thales Leites, Anderson Silva and Luke Rockhold, when he got the belt, Michael will have the chance to make the main event in their homeland.
Hendo (32w, 14l), in turn, sees the fight with Bisping as a chance to cap off his career. A former Pride and Strikeforce champion, Dan has against Michael his third chance to conquer the UFC belt. In his last fight, Henderson beat Hector Lombard with a beautiful knockout.
On the same night, Vitor Belfort tries to bounce back from a defeat to Ronaldo Jacare in his last fight. The Brazilian will face Gegard Mousasi, who’s coming from two wins, in a middleweight bout.
