The possibility of the highly anticipated rematch between Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson just went up a notch.
Newely crowned middleweight champion Michael Bisping dropped a bomb shell earlier today during a homecoming in Manchester, England.
Bisping is on a media tour of the U.K after his KO victory over Luke Rockhold at UFC 199 earlier this month and today during his first media stop in Manchester dropped a not so small hint regrading his next fight and his possible opponent.
Well when you’re the champion you get to the call the shots so I’m telling you right now my next fight will be in Manchester.
Bring Dan Henderson in here and I will knock him out for fun.
In the past 7-10 days the rumoured rematch between Bisping and Dan Henderson has gained much momentum. Sam Alvey who is a UFC fighter and training partner of one Dan Henderson also posted an interesting picture regarding the potential rematch.
*Note: No official announcements have been made by the UFC or Dan Henderson.
Two men who are in need of a win to keep their promotional dreams alive will meet in Vancuver.
South Africa’s only UFC fighter is heading to Canada as Garreth “Soldier Boy” McLellan is set to take on Italian Alessio di Chirico in a very interesting middleweight scrap.
McLellan (13-4) is coming into the meeting off of a TKO loss to Magnus Cedenblad in May at UFC Rotterdam. The former EFC middleweight champion goes into his fourth outing with a 1-2 promotional record with his only win being a TKO win over Bubba Bush last April in Ireland, a loss could well be the end of his UFC career. Fighting out of Johannesburg the South African has never dropped back-to-back losses and will be looking to get back to winning ways in Canada.
The 26-year old di Chirico (9-1) dropped his UFC debut to Bojan Velickovic in April. The Italian won the 2014 IMAAF light heavyweight gold medal and is now focused at making a run in the big leagues. In search of that ever elusive first UFC win di Chirico has a tough challenge ahead of him and will be looking to get the taste of defeat out of his mouth come fight night.
Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson was a fighter through and through. Regardless of who is opponent was and how he felt about the man stood opposite him inside the fenced in walls of an MMA cage Kimbo always demanded but above all else gave respect.
It was way back in 2008 that I stumbled across a video of a fight in a garden somewhere in America. Immediately I became a fan of the man with the gold teeth and beard. I followed Kimbo on his journey from the backyard into the life of a pro athlete inside the Elite XC cage and beyond.
This man was a walking success story. A true from rags to riches tail unfolded before our eyes as he became a huge household name.
No words could ever truly do this man and the legacy he has left behind any justice. A modern day gladiator taken from his collesuem too soon.
Michael Bisping may be the KING at cutting promo’s, and he’s at it again.
If you have been around the fight game for last decade or so then you are familiar with a man who’s ability to sell a fight are second to none. That man? Michael Bisping.
The British standout has been a long perinail contender in the 185-pound division and after 25 fights inside the Octagon “The Count” gets his a shot at UFC gold. Taking on an old foe in Luke Rockhold who won the belt when he stopped Chris Weidman earlier this year, the pre-fight chatter between the two has been, as you can imagine, EPIC!
Yesterday Bisping spoke to media and cut one of the best promo’s of his career.
Ay I’ve said it before. Two years, two months, two week, two days I don’t care. Half of the UFC roster are pussies, they wouldn’t take this fight. Jacare wouldn’t take this fight. It makes me sick. I will fight anyone, anywhere at anytime.
In what can only be explained as being 25-seconds of pure fight selling gold the brash Brit goes into more vivid detail of how he sees the fight playing out on Saturday.
