Rashad Evans Shares Gameplan To Defeat Dan Henderson

April 16, 2013 9:56 am by BJPENN.COM News

“With Dan Henderson, there’s no secret, the power of Dan Henderson. He has a huge right hand, and he doesn’t hide it. He goes right after you. He makes sure he lines it up and he lets you know that he’s going to hit you with that big right hand.

“But at the same time, he has great takedown defense. He has a wrestling background, so he will get you on the ground and do ground and pound.”

“For me, what I need to do is what I always need to do and that’s just fight my fight,” said Evans. “I need to have my transitions from my punches to my takedowns, and they have to be sharp. No lazy half shots, none of that pitty-pat punching. I mean hard punches and hard takedowns.”

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Rashad Evans, gives his take on his upcoming showdown with Dan Henderson to the UFC on FUEL TV crew.

The two top 205’ers square off at UFC 161.
