Henderson Talks Jones And Anderson Silva Rematch ‘I’m Worried About The Other Tall Skinny Guy’ | UFC News
By Jamie McAllister
The UFC Light-Heavyweight number one contender Dan Henderson comments in an interview with TATAME.
Henderson is set to face UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones at UFC 151 on September 1st in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Henderson comments on Jones DWI charge and does not think it will have much of an effect on Jones going into the UFC 151 main event.
“I’m sure he’s a smart kid and he’s going to train hard for any fight that he has.”
Henderson also comments on Jones strengths and he states his length is one of his biggest assets as well as his work rate and attitude. However Henderson is not getting caught up in what his opponent does well and plans to focus on his own skills.
“As far as the biggest assets, his length, his goofiness, his elbows and I think he continuously tries to get better. It’s up to me to make sure I do what I do best.”
Henderson was submitted by the UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva at UFC 82. He comments on a potential rematch and admits if he never gets the chance to avenge the loss then it wont haunt him.
“I’m not waiting for anything. I’d probably cut weight for it, but right now I’m not even thinking about it.”
“If it never happens, I’ll still live my life just fine. If the fans want to see that, if there’s nobody else at 205 and they want to see me the fight, maybe. But I’m not worried about that right now. I’m worried about the other tall skinny guy (laughs).”
This past weekend at UFC 148 Tito Ortiz retired following his decision loss to Forrest Griffin. When asked if he had any plans to retire Henderson stated he would have to be kicked out.
“I’m not thinking that I’m going to stay around until they have to kick me out.”
