Yeah he knew it was coming because he couldn't get out of the habit of circling towards the damn thing. Bisping's style suited Henderson to a T, it was just a matter of time until he dropped him

Re: Bisping haters

That fight was the most satisfying KO I have ever seen, probably because I've hated Bisping ever since he opened his mouth on TUF, and Hendo is my favorite fighter. But to be honest, this should show that the UFC has tried to pad Bisping's record at MW, and when he finally gets a good fighter across the cage, he fails. He ran away from Leben and fought that whole fight like a coward. He is not a contender at MW. Franklin, Okami, Maia, Marquardt, Cote, Quarry, Sonnen, and others would destroy him as well. Great card overall, I thought it was over-hyped, but it turned out well.

Yep - same here. I thought he was okay too - but TUF wrecked it for me, and I couldn't wait for this fight.

We had the fight at my house last night, and I had to "talk people down" from saying the second shot was a cheap shot (after he was already KO'd) for 2 reasons: 1) he had it coming, and 2) the Ref hadn't stepped in to stop it yet.

People who hadn't watched TUF this season didn't know how much smack he'd been talking.

That said - I hope he didn't suffer any permanent damage from either of those shots, because both were AWESOMELY VICIOUS!

Re: Bisping haters

I don't understand why Bisping has such an ego/attitude? He's not that sweet. He won TUF. He hasn't looked terribly good anywhere else.

Everyone at my house was so excited about that KO and the subsequential flying forearm.
