Michael Bisping to win in Round 3 at 10/1 with SkyBet

There is a major score to settle in the Manchester Arena, early on Sunday morning for the main event of UFC 204, where middleweight champion Michael Bisping will defend his title against old foe and MMA legend Dan Henderson.

The UFC betting has Bisping as the clear favourite to beat a 46-year old Henderson, but these two met before at UFC 100 and Dan Henderson knocked out Bisping that night in the most spectacular fashion imaginable.

Back in 2009 at UFC 100, Bisping and Henderson came into the fight as rival team coaches from a memorable season of The Ultimate Fighter. Bisping, brash and cocky, was full of confidence, but when the fight was on he repeatedly circled into the range of Henderson’s big right hand. Eventually he paid the price, as Henderson found a monster overhand right which crunched on the jaw of Bisping, flopping him straight to the canvas, where Henderson quickly followed up with a full-body-weight drop punch just to make sure. It wasn’t pretty.

Fast forward a little though, and Bisping has left that night well and truly behind him. Back in February at UFC London, he won a hard-fought decision over Anderson Silva, out-striking and out-working a man who is considered to be the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. Then came UFC 199. Champion Luke Rockhold was due to rematch with Chris Weidman who had to pull out with a neck injury. Step forward Michael Bisping, who accepted the challenge on two weeks notice for his first ever title shot in the UFC and he end up knocking out Rockhold to become to middleweight champion. Fairytale stuff.

Michael Bisping has never lost a fight on UK soil and although Henderson is a dangerous veteran, everything is pointing toward a win for Bisping provided he plays to his strengths and doesn’t walk onto a right hand. It’s hard to see this going into the championship rounds, and a price of 10/1 for Bisping to win in round 3 has a reasonable amount of appeal.
