Michael Bisping has one rematch sitting out there that he would love to receive.
Bisping, who is currently set to face Brian Stann at UFC 152 in September, remains haunted by the knockout delivered to him by Dan Henderson back in 2009.
With Henderson returning to the UFC, the potential for a second encounter is there. However, “Hendo” is currently in the light heavyweight division, while Bisping still calls middleweight home.
“Without a shadow of a doubt, the fight I wanna have again is Dan Henderson,” said Bisping, during a recent interview for Fuel TV. “That’s the one that haunts me. I go to my Twitter every day and there’s people, ‘Hey, Bisping, check this out!’ And I click on it and it’s a picture of me getting knocked out. You can have that. It’s what drives me.”
Recently, Henderson was forced to pull out of a championship fight with Jon Jones due to a knee injury. Bisping, who has been close to receiving a crack at UFC gold in the past, admitted that he would take a fight with Henderson on short notice.
“If I could get the opportunity to fight him, I would relish that opportunity,” Bisping said, “and if I was offered it on eight days notice, I would take it.”
