Dan Henderson: Not A Day Goes By Where I Don’t Get Thanked For KO’ing Bisping | UFC NEWS

MMA legend, Dan Henderson is one of the greatest fighters in history. His accomplishments are legendary and in this rare interview he discusses a variety of topics with the good guys over at

On pulling out of UFC 151:

“It was the first time I’ve ever had to pull out of a fight in 15 years,” said Henderson, who is the only man to simultaneously hold two weight-class titles in a major organization. “So, yeah, it sucked.”

“I was still thinking I was maybe going to be able to go out there and go on, but I hadn’t tested [his knee] in a couple weeks,” Henderson said. “Because everyone, my doctors and physical therapists and everyone told me that heals fast, and you should be able to be good. I stayed off it for 2-3 weeks just doing cross training and really not doing much, and you know, I had to test it out and pretty much everyone in my camp was telling me ‘don’t do it.’ I still wanted to, obviously.”

On Dana White’s reaction:

“He never said a word to me, he was extremely understanding of what happened,” Henderson said. “He obviously had been there before with other fights that had to be canceled, but at the time, this was a week before the fight, this was the worst thing that could happen and at the time I had no idea he was thinking of canceling the fight.”

On facing Machida at UFC 157:

“I’m glad I only have to fight him for three rounds, not five,” said Henderson. “There’s no secrets to what Machida does. The game plan’s to go in there and get the knockout, not let it go to the judges.”

On Michael Bisping:

“Not a day goes by where someone doesn’t thank me for the Bisping knockout,” said Henderson. “I’ve never had any other opponent I ever fought where people were like ‘please beat him up’ and ‘please shut this guy up.’ Usually they compliment me for something I did, not because the other guy is an a——.”

    • some guy says:

      lol that’s bad when your such an asshole that even your own countrymen dislike you! the thing with bitchping is that he really is a well rounded fighter. he just does not seem to do well with elite fighters, and he has a piss poor attitude. he talks so much shit and disrespects other fights, that when he loses it fills my heart with joy! if the guy showed more sportsman ship and wasn’t such a arrogant prick i might actually like him as a fighter, and a person. BUT he will always be a dickhead so i will always hate the guy!

  5. toto says:

  6. barcode says:

    to all the bisping haters on this thread i’d just like to say i’m british, & i was so happy when hendo knocked him out, bisping does not represent all us brits, we all love to see an arrogant prick get their comeuppence, thank you Dan, you the man.

  7. Trunk donkey says:

    Bisping is my boy. I love the trash talk. Gotta say I do give great respect for hendo cause the guy is a beast!!

  8. Juan Rodrigo says:

    Yes i hate Bisping and i’m a Mexican. It’s hard to harvest cabbage. I like Hendo. I hope Machida knocks you out. Brown pride.

  9. 123 says:

    it was a good knockout but the hate is abit much

  10. Ron Sanai says:

    I and all the country of El Salvador thank you Hendo for knocking out Bisping. You have done us a true service. Bless you.

  11. noirling says:

    Dear Hendo:
    Thank you for knocking out Michael Bisping. His ego has been running unchecked since the start of his career. He needs to be knocked out again.

    Just another fan

  12. Dbz says:

    The rest of us Saiyans left would like to thank you for knocking out bisping.

  13. gymburch says:

    Thank you Hendo & Victor!

  14. Not You says:

    You fags are really too much. “Thanks hendo, omg hendo ur mi hero, hendo fanks for dropping bisping now please drop you load into my throat.” Honestly.

  15. Your real dad says:

    Shame people talk about that and not the fact that he’s a ufc champion. Oh wait he’s not he’s just an old man whos past his prime. Machida holds a good chance of being the first person to knock his old ass.

    • some guy says:

      Dan isn’t a UFC champion anymore so i dont know what your talking about? while he isnt in his prime anymore the guy is still a top LHW and MW fighter! yeah i agree machida has a good chance of winning, but i really dont believe it will be by knock out im sure it will go to the judges score cards but we will find out soon enough!

  16. the 2nd amendment says:

    America would like to thank hendo,no buggy.I thank Nigel Benn each and every morning for making Gerald McClellan wit on his knees “like a dog” Don kings words! An American dog know spending the rest of his life impersonating a fax machine.Now thats how you ko a mo fo.
