Now Henderson is no longer a legitimate contender at 46 years old and a 3-6 record in his last nine fights, but the match-up is compelling because of the history between the two men. In 2009 the two were rival coaches in reality show “The Ultimate Fighter” of the UFC, and certainly no love lost between the two. After the crisis on television together, the two fought and famous Henderson downed Bisping rigid with his big right hand. So congratulations again to Bisping to take a fight with risks, in order to “avenge” a loss before.
The co-feature also comes at middleweight and has two of the most mercurial fighters in the division. Belfort is now 39 years old and certainly that is nearing the end. He was arrested in his last outing in May when he faced Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and has lost two of three. A victory here would give a third Mousasi UFC win in a row, his best streak in the company to date.
Jimi Manuwa hard-hitting Brit returns while trying to right the ship and score a victory over San Ovince Preaux. Manuwa is 15-2 overall with losses to Anthony Johnson and Alexander Gustafsson, so there is hope that it will continue to develop. He does not exist yet. This is St Preaux first fight since he was five rounds of Jon Jones in April. He has lost against Ryan Bader UFC and Glover Teixeira, so it has not been able to break with a win against the top shelf.
The last major fight card looks heavyweight Stefan Struve (27-8) and Daniel Omielamczuk (01/05/19) they will face. Omielanczuk has put together a solid three fight winning streak in the UFC and he’s 4-2 overall with the company. Stuve history of the UFC is much deeper and has had great ups and downs in his career. Here Struve is trying to win a second consecutive bout for the first time since September 2012, when he won by TKO Stipe Miocic. Miocic now holds the heavyweight title coveted UFC.
