Free fight: Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping at UFC 100

New, 17 comments

Relive one of the great knockouts in MMA history by watching Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping at UFC 100.

Although many have objected to the rematch between Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson at UFC 204 in Manchester, their first bout at UFC 100 was an instant classic and delivered one of the most memorable knockouts in MMA history.

Bisping, who antagonised Henderson on The Ultimate Fighter: United States vs. United Kingdom in 2009, finally collided with the former PRIDE champion at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

After Henderson found spurts of success in the opening five minutes, the MMA legend crumpled Bisping with an overhand right -- now commonly known as the 'H-Bomb' -- in the second round and followed up with a devastating diving elbow. After almost a decade, Bisping is still mocked about the KO to this day, which prompted the UFC to book the rematch in October.

'The Count' knocked out Luke Rockhold to claim the middleweight title at UFC 199 earlier this year and pulled off one of the greatest upsets since Matt Serra's KO of Georges St-Pierre in 2007.

Henderson, one of the sport's most renowned veterans, is coming off a brutal KO of Hector Lombard and will look to make history by becoming a three-promotion world champion a UFC 204.

The pay-per-view, which features Bisping vs. Henderson II in the main event, takes place on October 8 at Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.
