Weidman and Jacare fourious Henderson is fighting for the title
As unlikely as it may sound, Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson will fight for the UFC belt. This is a rematch that at least some of the fans will enjoy, but not the other middleweight division contenders.
Bisping shocked the world when he stepped in as a replacement at UFC 199 and knock out the favorite, champion Luke Rockhold. In the first title defense Bisping did not want a rematch with Rockhole. Instead, he wanted to fight Dan Henderson who KO’ed him brutally in 2009 at UFC 100. UFC granted him this wish.
No. 2-ranked former champion Chris Weidman and No. 3-ranked Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza both took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the matchup:
„End of the day I feel I’m best in world and will get my belt back by beating whoever it takes but this is a joke of a system,“ wrote Weidman on his Twitter.
„If the UFC wants to honor Dan Henderson then place him in the UFC Hall of Fame, don’t steal what I won!!“ wrote Souza.
