It's not the first time Dan Henderson has been the betting underdog. It might be his last.
Michael Bisping is the favorite to defeat Henderson at UFC 204, in what could be Henderson's final fight, particularly if he pulls off the upset.
Bisping is the -227 favorite, while Henderson is the +160 underdog. You'd havae to bet $227 to win $100 if you bet on Bisping, but only $100 to win $162 of you bet on Henderson, according to Best Fight Odds.
Bisping was an underdog when he dethroned Luke Rockhold at UFC 199 to win the UFC middleweight championship, but now he is the champ and the hunted. Henderson, however, is on fire after his impressive knockout victory over Hector Lombard on the same show. Henderson also holds a stunning KO victory over Bisping, long before Bisping was champion.
So Henderson may not be a bad bet at UFC 204. Still, Bisping said it was his "destiny" to defeat Rockhold and become the middleweight champion and he's likely not ready to drop the strap to a 45-year-old contemplating retirement.
