I freely admit that I was one of the multitudes who gave Michael Bisping no chance when he stepped in as a late-replacement to face champ Luke Rockhold.
I mean, Bisping had been in the UFC so long, and had lost so many big fights, that it was impossible to think he’d perform well against such long odds.
But the Brit sure shut that cocky Californian up, eh? This Saturday the new champ gets to defend his belt and redeem himself against Dan Henderson, whose highlight reel knockout over Bisping has been a staple of highlight reels since UFC 100. There’s so much to say about that matchup, but I’m still laughing out loud that Bisping knocked Rockhold the f*** out.
