MMA community reacts to Michael Bisping’s win over Dan Hendeson

In the main event of UFC 204, UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping made his first successful title defense in Manchester, England as he picked up a unanimous decision win over Dan Henderson in a five round war.

The fight saw Bisping dropped in both the first and second round, both times resulting in Henderson nearly finishing the fight, however ‘The Count’ showed his championship spirit as he continued to not only push the pace, but outwork Henderson on the feet.

After the fight, both men showed mutual respect for one another as they shook hands multiple times, and thanked each other for the opportunity to have such an epic fight.

As can be expected, the MMA community went wild on Twitter post-fight. Below are some of the best reactions to the fight:
