Our most successful mixed martial artist and UFC® fighter Michael Bisping will defend his UFC middleweight belt in his home town of Manchester on Saturday 8 October.
Fans will know how much this fight means to Bisping, who was the first ever British athlete to win a UFC at UFC 199 and the fact that this will be the first title defence on home soil by a British athlete.
This will be Bisping’s American opponent Dan Henderson’s last UFC fight making the match even more exciting and historic.
Speaking ahead of the fight General Manager and Vice President UFC EMEA, James Elliott, said:“After 10 years in the UFC, representing Great Britain, I can’t think of a more fitting opportunity than for Michael Bisping to defend his title on home soil, in his home town and in front of a home crowd. UFC is firmly in the hearts and minds of sports fans in the UK and this is officially the hottest ticket in town. Those lucky fans who secure a seat in the Manchester Arena will witness an incredible event.”
