MMA legend Dan Henderson is still knocking people out after 19 years of professional mixed martial arts fighting.

Wednesday marked “Hendo’s” professional MMA debut anniversary, as he took on Crezio de Souza in the Brazil Open – ’97 on June 15, 1997.

Come 45 fights later, the 45-year-old pioneer of the sport is coming off an amazing knockout win over Hector Lombard at UFC 199.

With retirement in his scope, “Hendo” is looking for one last fight now that a former victim of an H-bomb knockout, Michael Bisping picked up the middleweight championship belt.

Bisping is more keen on a rematch with Henderson over any of the middleweight contenders due to the fact that he has been posterized by Hendo’s overhand right.
