“I think I’m a tough fight for anybody. If you’re in a fight with me, you’re definitely going to know you’re in a fight. I don’t know if really Jon Jones has felt that too much in his career. I definitely would test that out. I think style-wise I match up real well with him… It’s unfortunate that Rashad got hurt, but you know, it’s happened twice now. He’s had people step in. … All I know is, if I have to, I’ll pull out the age card and just say I should have seniority here. I’m getting older. Rashad’s got a little more time than I do… That’s pretty much one of the last things I’ve got on my list for my career. to get a UFC title and keep it for a little while.”
All-time-great, Dan Henderson recently sat down with the guys over at sherdog.com to discuss his future in the fight game.
While he has been able to nab every other major promotional title on the planet, he has failed in two attempts to capture UFC gold. Eyeing a matchup he feels he deserves against Jon Jones, Dan hopes to be able to leapfrog the winner of the upcoming Evans vs. Davis bout and use his age as a reason to urgently charge the UFC champion.
Will his third attempt at a UFC title yield a better result for him or will that gold belt be the only real sticking point to not call “Hendo” the Greatest of All Time?
