Bisping should take this pretty easily on paper but obviously you can never count out a "h-bomb" landing.

yup the fighter with the most famous and powerful overhand right in history is challenging for the belt at the age of 46...that's pretty incredible, I think regardless of the outcome we will be looking at henderson as one of the best fighters of all time, sure he's never won the ufc belt but his resume is better than almost any other champion I can think of. his accolades include:

UFC 17 Middleweight tournament(in 1998 lol)
Rings openweight tournament
Pride welterweight grand prix and belt
Pride middleweight belt
Knockout of the year (2009) vs bisping at UFC 100
Strikeforce Lightheavyweight champion
fight of the year vs shogun in 2011 at UFC 139

he has beaten:

carlos newton
babalu x2
gilbert yvel
ninja
murillo bustamante x2(maybe one of the most underated mma fighters in history)
Big Nog
misaki
belfort
wanderlai
palhares
rich franklin
michael bisping
feijiao
shogun
fedor
lombard

to name but a few

what a legend, I think he should of retired after that epic win vs lombard where the crowd were cheering him back to life after he was hurt to deliver one of the most vicious knockouts I've ever seen.

I'm cheering for hendo for sure but betting bisping pretty large, easy to hedge with hendo KO, very hard to see this going to a decision. I'd be really surprised tbh.

One thing that almost about bisping is his eye, his pupil is literally black, google it if you haven't seen it, it's gnarly, and we may not know how bad his vision in it is until he retires.
you gotta think bisping is going to have a big cardio advantage, and also his output will likely be a lot higher than dan's. at this point hendo get's wobbled by a stiff breeze, bisping's power is slightly underrated and he's only going to need a few clean shots to put dan in serious trouble. I could see bisping taking his time in the first few minutes but I think he'll be prepared for the big right hand. Im interested to see how hendo mixes it up and maybe try something out of the normal hendo gameplan.

looking forward to seeing moose and vitor, moose could be a win or 2 away from a title shot if he wins here, he's a big fan favorite too which helps.

I'm liking OSP's odds tbh, manuwa not quite on the same level as the divisions best, but he's dangerous nonetheless, weak ground game though, OSP's going to have a big grappling advantage, and is coming of a very respectful performance on short notice against bones, he's impressed me since coming into the ufc from strikeforce, one of the most improved fighters technically at the top of the game imo.

quite like alcantara and tumenov too, Looking forward to seeing tumenov's stand up again, some of the best in the division for sure, he looked great vs larkin (both did tbh) before his ground game was demolished by gunnar, which is unusual for a  russian fighter, most of them come from a strong sambo background, but einstein does not. if he can get that aspect of his game up to par with his striking he's a definite future title challenger.

mike perry vs danny roberts on the prelims will be interesting too Devil

UK fighters getting smashed tonight hah, perry's KO was nasty, ref was late stopping it too, close fight up until then.

tumenov completely **** the bed, his ground game is ****, he doesn't seem to of improved it since he lost to gunnar, he was well on his way to winning too. can't trust his ML odds anymore, too flaky.

davy grant threw away a win there too, terrible fight IQ like albert. alcantara put me in the positive for the night

the only impresssive thing has been his ability to survive the punishment he's taken

pretty much, he should of clinched and worked takedowns more, hendo's cardio isnt capable of working that pace
