UFC 204 – Fight Analysis and Predictions

Will a legend lay his fighting career to rest in the best way possible or will revenge take over at UFC 204?



UFC 204 is fast approaching and we are in store for a historic and eventful night in Manchester, England.

First, we are taking a look at the highly anticipated rematch between current UFC Middleweight Champion, Michael Bisping and rival and contender, Dan Henderson.



Michael Bisping.


Michael Bisping

Michael Bisping shocked the world on June 4th when, on 17 days notice, he defeated Luke Rockhold via knockout in the very first round at UFC 199. Michael Bisping, despite being a veteran of the sport, has come under criticism with some MMA fans claiming he doesn’t deserve the title. Amongst his critics is UFC Middleweight contender, Chris Weidman, who stated…

“To walk around and people ask me who the champion is in my weight class and I have to say Michael Bisping, it’s a little embarrassing, but that’s just the way it goes”.

while talking to Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour.


Revenge is the only thing on Bisping’s mind after suffering an iconic knockout defeat to Dan Henderson 7 years ago, at UFC 100. The loss sparked a mild rivalry over the years and Bisping now has a chance to avenge his loss in his first fight since winning the title.


Dan Henderson.


Dan Henderson

Dan Henderson has had an illustrious career spanning over almost 20 years and is considered a legend of the sport. With the rivalry between the two still strong, many are wondering whether Henderson’s age will play a big part in the outcome of the fight.

There are mixed opinions from fans when questioning whether Dan Henderson is deserving of his current title shot, and although he won in impressive fashion in his last fight, knocking out Hector Lombard with an elbow, Henderson has only won 4 of his last 10 UFC fights. Henderson has also admitted whether he wins or loses, he will retire after UFC 204 and if he wins this fight, Henderson will add the UFC Middleweight Title to his collection and lay to rest, what has been an outstanding MMA career.


Predicted Winner

Dan Henderson.

A shock prediction, but I believe the knockout power Dan Henderson possesses will be too much for Michael Bisping to handle and can see this fight going similar to their first. And although Bisping proved many of us wrong by knocking Luke Rockhold out, I just can’t see the same happening to Henderson.

Who will win and how? Let us know in the comments.

First reported by, Iaquinta vs Felder has been in the works for some time, and sources have now confirmed the contest has been booked for April 7th, at the Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Before taking a two-year break from the sport, Al Iaquinta was on a four-fight win streak. Although having contract issues with the UFC, he made a successful comeback at UFC Fight Night 108 in Nashville, where he earned a spectacular knockout of Diego Sanchez.

Also enjoying the best form of his career is “The Irish Dragon”, who has collected three consecutive stoppage victories over Alex Ricci, Steven Ray, and Charles Oliveira.

So far, the Iaquinta/Felder bout shares the UFC 223 card with the Women’s Strawweight face-off between Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Felice Herrig, and the Lightweight fight between Mairbek Taisumov and Evan Dunham.


Could we see Al Iaquinta extend his win streak to 6-in-a-row, or will we see Paul Felder continue with his recent run of wins and shock the #11 ranked Lightweight?
