Dan Henderson’s brutal knockout of Michael Bisping at UFC 100 remains one of the best highlight reels the organization has in its catalog. Henderson and Bisping feuded as coaches of a United States vs. Great Britain-themed The Ultimate Fighter, and despite all the talk of Bisping being a more technical striker, Henderson dusted him with one of the biggest punches in the sport’s history.

Seven years later, the two are set for a rematch, with Henderson having scored another brutal knockout in his last match and Bisping having secured the UFC Middleweight Championship, seemingly peaking at the late age of 37. The two will headline UFC 204: Bisping vs. Henderson 2 on Saturday, a card that will be broadcast on pay-per-view, with a preliminary card split between Fox Sports 1 and an online stream from UFC Fight Pass.

Bisping is at the head of a middleweight division that may not be at its strongest, but still contains some of the top fighters in the sport.

Two of those fighters will be fighting just prior to the main event: Vitor Belfort and Gegard Mousasi. It’s a matchup that’s been long-asked for by fans and now it’s going to happen. Belfort took part in another long-asked for matchup in his most recent fight, but found himself on the losing end of a Ronaldo Souza TKO. But he does have the distinction of owning a knockout win over Dan Henderson in November 2015.

Mousasi has been excellent since joining the UFC, also owning a win over Henderson in January 2015. In his last two fights, he bested Thales Leites via unanimous decision in February 2016 and knocked out Thiago Santos in the first round at UFC 200 in July.

A light heavyweight bout between Ovince Saint Preux and Jimi Manuwa and a heavyweight bout between Stefan Struve and Daniel Omielanczuk are also highlight attractions on the main card. Finally, the main card will open with a featherweight matchup between Mirsad Bektic and Russell Doane.

The highlight of the preliminary card is a bantamweight bout between Brad Pickett and Iuri Alcantara.

Below is all you need to know to watch, including the full UFC 204 fight card.
