UFC 204: Bisping-Henderson 2 Official

ufc 204

We’ve heard from just about everybody involved in the UFC 204 main event regarding it being official except the promotion.

Now, the UFC has done just that, putting Michael Bisping-Dan Henderson for the middleweight title inside the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England this October.

The rematch will headline the return to the United Kingdom for Bisping, who won the title earlier this year when he stopped Luke Rockhold. It will also be a rematch, as Henderson won the first encounter back at UFC 100 via knockout.

For the fans in England, the event will be a different one, as it starts at 11 p.m. local time, with the main card beginning at 3 a.m. local time. That will allow for it to have the usual UFC pay-per-view start times in the U.S.

Below is the current card:

UFC Middleweight Championship
Michael Bisping (c) vs. Dan Henderson

Middleweight: Vitor Belfort vs. Gegard Mousasi

Light Heavyweight: Ovince Saint Preux vs. Jimi Manuwa

Heavyweight: Ruslan Magomedov vs. Stefan Struve

Lightweight: Leonardo Santos vs. Adriano Martins
