– Ahead of what he says is his final MMA fight, Dan Henderson’s memorable “H-bomb” was given special treatment with a video chronicling the devastating knockouts in his career. Henderson meets Michael Bisping Saturday night in the main event of UFC 204 for the middleweight title.
Henderson, who turned 46 years old in August, owns 16 career knockouts to his resume. One of those came back at UFC 100 when he connected with his right hand on the chin of Bisping, knocking the Brit out cold.
Throughout his career, Henderson has finished the likes of Hector Lombard, Tim Boetsch, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Fedor Emelianenko and Wanderlei Silva.
– Due to the loss of BJ Penn, UFC officials have scrapped plans for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 97 event. The promotion confirmed the news in a press release in which they stated plans to reschedule the event.
“I suffered a rib injury in training and I apologize to the fans in Manila who were expecting to watch me compete,” Penn said. “I hope to be back in the Octagon soon.”
The UFC is planning to compensate those who were to compete on October 15 from Manila, Philippines. Penn was set to headline opposite Ricardo Lamas.
“SMLEI and UFC will continue to work together in the future to deliver exciting live events for fans,” Edgar Tejerero, President of SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc. said.
