MMA

Seven years after one of the most iconic knockouts in combat sports history, Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping have agreed to lock horns again.

UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping announced on MMA on SiriusXM that he'll be defending his championship against longtime rival Dan Henderson October 8 in Manchester, England. The currently unannounced show will be UFC 204.

Bisping (29-7) was the victim of Henderson's (32-7) right hand in a much-replayed finish to their bout at UFC 100. The fight was the culmination of a season of The Ultimate Fighter which saw Bisping lay in the trash talk heavily.

Bisping became UFC Middleweight Champion by defeating Luke Rockhold at UFC 198 on short notice. Bisping was a late replacement for the injured Chris Weidman, who withdrew due to a neck injury.

The UFC has a pre-fight press conference scheduled for September 19, where they'll likely feature the top talents on the card.
