Dan Henderson KOs Michael Bisping With a Brutal Punch at UFC 100

Dan Henderson KODan Henderson landed one of the most brutal knockout punches in the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship when he knocked Michael Bisping out cold Saturday night at UFC 100.

Throughout the fight, Henderson looked like he was just waiting to unleash one hard punch with his right hand, and after missing several times in the first round, he finally landed that punch in the second. The punch itself knocked Bisping unconscious, but Henderson jumped on him and landed yet another punch to Bisping's face before the referee could step in and stop it.

Bisping and Henderson have had a war of words as opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter, and Henderson said before the fight that he thinks Bisping talks too much. Afterward, Henderson clearly still felt that way. Said Henderson of that final punch while Bisping was on the ground, "That one was to shut him up."

Henderson is a former Pride champion who has the distinction of being the only MMA fighter to hold title belts in two weight classes simultaneously, and he showed at UFC 100 that he's on another level from Bisping, the Englishman who has been a major part of the UFC's European marketing strategy. Fortunately, Bisping woke up after a few moments being out flat on his back on the canvas, and he walked out of the Octagon on his own power.

Up next for Henderson could be a shot at the UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva. Henderson lost to Silva once before, but with the punching power he displayed against Bisping, he's a threat to anyone.
