Video | Dan Henderson Happy To Give Fans What They Want By Beating Jones At UFC 151 | UFC News

UFC light heavyweight Dan Henderson lets us know how he feels about the strategies other title challengers have employed, what he thinks when people say he’s the last hope to beat the dominant champ and whether or not he thinks Jones can take a punch. We also hear whom he’s brought into camp to mimic the lanky Jones and how he feels about training after so many years in the fight business.

“For some reason, a lot of fans don’t like him and they’re just wanting him to lose. I’ll gladly step in and fill that role for them. Overall, what you want to do with almost anybody (is close the distance) unless you want to stay outside, but for me that’s pretty much what I like to do and I just have to make sure that I’m able to do it against Jon Jones and his reach. I don’t know (if he can take a punch). Hopefully he’ll take a few.”

    H-bombs break bones. I’m excited about this one, let’s see if jones can finish hendo in the kind of fashion that anderson did.

  2. Mike b says:

    Let’s go hendo knock this fake motherfucker out….

  3. Mike b says:

    I respect jones as a fighter but something about him just rubs me the wrong way.i won’t be surprised if jones dominates hendo like he has his past opponents.but hendo just needs one good punch……if he can hit em!i wanna see the h bomb land and break jones face…

  4. Xaninho says:

    Only chance Hendo has is staying in his face all the time throwing bombs. Hopefully one connects and puts Jones’ lights out.

    • KIDD433 says:

      Hendos got a that punchers chance.Would love to see him put jones to sleep.People think he’s fake,partly because he is,but mainly because his reign as champ has been fake.What i mean is,he has been fighting and beating much smaller opponents.But he’s only winning because of his freak reach,and strength advantage from being a heavyweight.He weighs in at 205 at the weigh in,than walks in at 215 220 at the fight.on top of that he walks around at 235 to 240 normally.thats what DOS SANTOS weighs.And Cain usually 240 245.Ovareem weighs 255.This are fighters much closer to his size,and guys he should be fighting.Not these 5′-11″and 6’footers.he’s been fighting.These are mismatches.ITS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE WHY HES BEEN WINNING…And I hate to say it,but Hendos gonna be another victim for him,Jones is too damn big for him.Another fucken mismatch

  5. CombatRusse says:

    I think that this fight would be the remarke of Anderson vs Hendo
    And it will probably have the same outcome : Jones choking out Henderson
    But who knows Hendo has always surprises for fans and…for Dana White (I remember that motherfucker calling Hendo “too old” after his loss against Shields)
    Oh, and I would love to see Chael Sonne fighting and trash talking about Bones :)

  7. CanILive says:

    I love how when there’s talk of jones, they all say he doesn’t fight at his own weight. Atleast he’s close to his fight weight than most others, especially readin that Silva walks around above 205…

  8. WrestlingRules says:

    I don’t think Hendo has much chance here. Jones is too big and long and too quick. It should be a round 1 tko or sub by Jones. But at least Hendo didn’t say NOPE to fighting him like Silva did. Silva probably would not go to 05 to fight Rashad either. I wish Rashad could make 85 and beat up Silva. Oh yah and Silva is bigger, taller and longer than Hendo!!!…LMAO….Anderson “NOPE” Silva….

  9. fist says:

    no hendo..bones will put your career to an end!! tko round 1 for jones!!

  10. Dan Is The Man says:

    No matter what. I think Jones will win, but Dan is one of the best ever. Should be a great fight.

  11. rondo says:

    Sorry Dan your fighting the man thats gonna break Silva’s records,you won’t make it outta the third!

  12. Joegun says:

    Full bones jones..the hbomb awaits

  13. josh says:

    hendo beating jones…ha! that’s funny.
    i can’t wait to see bones knock this cheater out.

  14. H-bombmyass says:

    Hendo,Hendo,Hendo, I think you’ve biten off a little more than you can chew. What in the world are you thinking, you couldn’t get past 2 rounds against silva, now your gunna beat a younger, bigger version of him? Your WAY past your prime and you won’t get past the 2nd again. Also why the hell would Silva give you another shot? It would just send you into retirement, if Jones doest! Your a joke and all you have is a hope to land a punch and he’ll be waiting for it!

  15. John Evanko says:

    Not sure who all these Bones haters are…He’s my favorite fighter…I think he finishes Hendo fast because Hendo is gonna try to be aggressive and keep coming…That’s gonna get him either choked or knocked out IMHO…I like Hendo a lot…I respect him…But he’s no match for JBJ…No one is right now…

  16. this says:

    anderson would beat jbj. wont ever happen though. jds vs jbj make that fight happen.
