In his next bout Jones will defend his Light-Heavyweight Title against former Strikeforce and Pride FC champion Dan Henderson. The bout is set to take place on Sept. 1, 2012, at UFC 151 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Henderson started out as a Greco-Roman wrestler and went on to represent the US at the Olympics. However Jones is more worried by Henderson’s deadly right hand the ‘H-Bomb’.

“I think more his striking than his wrestling. With each bout, he has been using his striking more. He throws those “H-Bombs” and they are like heat-seeking missiles. Dan is a great wrestler, as well, and has been wrestling along time. I wrestled last about 5 years ago in college and I don’t enjoy wrestling as much as I used to. Dan is older and has been doing it more, but it seems like as he has gotten older, he has focused more on his striking. So, I think his striking is more of a concern than his wrestling.”
