A fan-favorite matchup between two legends is set to take place this weekend, and now is the time to bet on Bisping vs. Henderson with Bovada!
By some bizarre series of events, Dan Henderson is fighting for the middleweight title. The Pride and UFC legend has been a professional since 1997, and has a combined 46 professional fights under his belt. Henderson has his chance to make history this weekend, and if he’s successful, it will be one of the greatest feats in the history of sports.
In his way is England’s first UFC champion, Michael Bisping. The fellow longtime veteran shocked the world and made US gambling news back in June by knocking out Luke Rockhold in the first round on just 17 days notice. Bisping will look to make his first title defense against Henderson on Saturday in the main event of UFC 204.
The matchup between Bisping and Henderson is a rematch over seven years in the making. In their first fight, Henderson delivered one of the most famous (and brutal) knockouts in UFC history over Bisping with a massive overhand right in the second round. Bisping is seeking redemption, and hopes to make it two straight KO’s to even the score over his American rival. A bet on Bisping vs. Henderson being the fight of the night seems like a good gamble here.
