Live from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, United Kingdom is UFC 204, featuring a title fight in the middleweight division between American legend Dan Henderson and British Icon Michael Bisping.
Michael “The Count” Bisping shocked the world when he knocked out former champion Luke Rockhold in the first round on short notice at UFC 199. For Bisping, a man who has carried the flag for the UK and represented his country with pride, it was his crowning achievement on a great mixed martial arts career. That career holds 30 wins, 18 of which came by knockout, and Bisping would love nothing more than to have the 19th be in an effort to get back the one he suffered at the hands of his opponent, Dan Henderson, in their first match at UFC 100, while staying undefeated on home soil.
Dan Henderson has fought anyone and everyone who’s been at the top of the mixed martial arts game for nearly 20 years. From his epic pride fights with Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva, to sharing the UFC Octagon with Anderson Silva and Shogun Rua, or his knockouts over Renato Sobral and Fedor Emelianenko under the Strikeforce banner, Dan Henderson has done it all. Tonight, his incredible career comes to an end, in what he says will be his retirement party. What better way to go out than by being crowned a UFC Champion in his final walk? If Henderson is successful in the main event this evening, he will become the only fighter to hold championships in Pride, Strikeforce, and the UFC.

Bellator 185- How to Watch, Times and Fight Card
Bellator is once again heading to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville Connecticut, and this time they are bringing with them one of the most anticipated former UFC fighter turned Bellator stars’ debut. Gegard Mousasi will be making his first appearance in the Bellator cage against a former Bellator champion in Alexander Shlemenko. Although this event has lost some of its star power over the last several weeks, it is still stacked and you can bet that the main event will bring some fireworks.
Earlier in the month, it was announced that King Mo had suffered an injury that had forced him out of his co-main event fight with former middleweight champion Liam McGeary. Bellator worked quickly to secure a replacement opponent for McGeary in Bubba McDaniels. Unfortunately for McDaniels and the fans alike, McGeary had later suffered an injury of his own and the fight was removed from the card.
This left a spot open in the co-main event slot, which would be filled by a welterweight matchup between Brennan Ward and David Rickels. Just four days out from the fight, Bellator announced that Ward had also become injured and the fight has been removed from the card as well. The main card has been shuffled around and the welterweight bout between Neiman Gracie and Zak Bucia will now serve as the co-main event.
