The Dan Henderson Gameplan
While at this point The Count was a very established fighter in the sport. He was not quite yet at the levels of notoriety he today finds himself. In this fight against Dan Henderson, Bisping did enter as the underdog. Fighting one of the biggest punchers in the sport. Any plan of avoiding his big right hand seemed to be lost somewhere in the pre-fight plan.
And while Michael Bisping would have been expected to circle to his right. Minimising the power behind Henderson’s overhand right, he instead chose to circle o his left. This opened him up to the right hand of Hendo which was waiting for the right moment to strike.
Then at three minutes twenty of the second round, he did exactly just that. As Henderson’s right hand landed, sending Bisping to the canvas. He then followed up with a slamming hammer fists to the face to seal the deal. Ensuring sure the Brit did not get back off the canvas, which of course had a very slim chance of ever happening! A devastating stoppage and highlight-reel finish from the man nicknamed H-bomb!
