British Automobile Functions The Same As British Fighter

It turns out that Michael Bisping’s bark was a lot worse than his bite. Bisping, a British MMA, fighter spent most of the Ultimate Fighter’s Season 9 bad mouthing Dan Henderson and boasting that he had never been knocked out. Rather than respecting Henderson’s knockout power, Bisping instead mocked him by saying that he had never been knocked out and gave Henderson the title “Decision Dan” and finally claiming that he would knockout the former UFC Champion.

By the end of the first round it had become clear that Bisping was in trouble and fighting an opponent who was clearly superior. At the 3:20 mark of the second round Henderson connected his right fist to Bisping’s face (above photo) and the Brit was done. Seldom do fighter’s live up to the hype that they create about themselves going into a contest but seldom do they fall as flat on their faces (or backs in this case) as Bisping did Saturday night.

In a strange twist of irony, Dan Henderson was rewarded for coaching on the 9th season of The Ultimate Fighter with a British made Range Rover. It performed as well as Bisping did in the ring, by breaking down while Henderson was on his way home from the fight in Vegas.
