Michael Bisping Fires Back At Dan Henderson

Earlier this week Dan Henderson stated that he was absolutely convinced he won his second fight with Michael Bisping at UFC 204, but needless to say ‘The Count’ disagrees with that assessment.

“Anybody that thinks Dan won that fight…quite frankly, you guys are crazy,” Bisping wrote on champions.co. “Of course, Dan is going to say that because it was in England, the judges were partial to me. They were the same judges that score many, many UFC events. It’s not like they rounded up three blokes from Manchester just for this fight. There’s a thing called an airplane, and those judges were flown out to score that bout.

Dan can try to come up with whatever excuses he wants to discredit my win, the fact of the matter is, he should be gracious in defeat. I won, fair and square. He put on a great performance, I won’t deny it. Well done to you, Dan, but guess what? It just wasn’t enough. They got it right on the #scorecard.”

Henderson has gone as far as to say he’d be willing to come out of retirement for a rubber match with Bisping, but that’s highly unlikely to happen with the way things stand as there’s a queue of top ranked fighters eager to fight the champion at the moment, including Chris Weidman, ‘Jacare’ Souza, Luke Rockhold and Yoel Romero to name but a few.
