VIDEO | Dan Henderson Talks About Fighting JDS For The UFC HW Crown

By Lynn Mitchell:
The bustling hoopla has started again with another big name fighter to step up to say he will accept a fight with UFC Heavyweight Champ Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146 on May 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  This has all been a bit messy with the recent succession of heavyweight contender Alistair Overeem becoming the poster boy of steroid use in MMA.

This past weekend the fans rally the “Super Samoan” Mark Hunt on twitter.  As the tweets fly, the President of the UFC Dana White shoots them down and says it’s not happening.

Now, we have Dan Hederson who has KO’d the once most dominating fighter in all of Mixed Martial Arts – Russian terror Fedor Emelianenko and with his most recent win over Maurcio “Shogan” Rua – willing to take a fight with the Champ.  Henderson has even fashioned a game plan.

If the MMA fans and the world over don’t get to see their first choice, we have a couple of great short notice fighters willing to step up and make this fight interesting.

    you gotta love Hendo- he isn’t afraid of anything and could knock out a horse with his right hand

  2. McCombski says:

    HENDO !!!! I dont care who you fight im watching! Ledgen in the sport and classy guy not a dick or too cocky. And btw you knocking out bisbing is my fav fight hahahah

    • hendoshmendo says:

      How can you possibly say he’s not cocky?
      He brags about ko win over Fedor…try watching the fight again and see how many times he punches him to the back of the head, by the way if anyone else does it they are either stood up and checked out, or a point is deducted. Second of all the win over shogun is very questionable. Thirdly why sould he get a shot over any other heavywieght…after all they fight in that division. He won’t win the light heavy belt to start. Stay in your division and try that before he starts to beak off, after all he’s only has 1 fight since he’s been back and his ufc record sucks!!!

      • Donovan says:

        @Hendoshmendo the fight anyone anywhere attitude of Dan Henderso alone shld be enough. The ? Abt Hendo and Shogun is wether it was a draw or Hendo win so stop the diahrreah of the mouth. Records shmecords muhfuggah. Records don’t mean SHIT when you put on the fights that he’s been in. I bet you are a Bones Jones nut hugger. Hittin Fedor on the head?…the fight wasn’t over bitch. Anyone that wants to win wld do the same. You are in serious denial bruthahi and you can’t be a true MMA fan if ysou’re worried about something like records.

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        Dude, he beat Shogun, so get over it.

        He has a 4-2 record in the UFC and that’s disregarding the streak he’s currently on. Those two losses were to Anderson Silva and Rampage when he was champion.

        I will only concede to him losing to Jake Sheilds which is fucking strange but whatever.

  3. Jb says:

    ^^^^ your a moron. His record sucks.? Lol you idiot look at his career. Wow, you should have to take an mma test to post here. I just don’t think he’s in fighting shape I mean he has been in camp and I would assume he would want the best condition for this fight.

  4. Fuck You says:

    I think if he’s willing to take a fight at 185, 205 & 205^ for a belt is kind of saying he’s cocky? Like you think you can be a champ at all those weight classes? I d

  5. danielrchargers says:

    that was THE most laziest interview i have ever watched… haha damn DANger Dan.

  6. Fuck You says:

    I don’t think he deserves let alone can beat any champ!*

  7. slacker says:

    Dan the man! He’s a meek and humble beast!

  8. DanIsAnIdiot says:

    LOL @ Anderson’s ground game being “ok” … .Dan, did you forget that Silva SUBMITTED YOU? Fucking idiot. You suck.

  9. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    You hear that people! He uses TRT responsibly and advocates random testing! HENDO IS THE MAN!

    • Jujitsu Player says:

      Hendo is a legend and looking forward to hopefully a fight with Jon Jones later this year but I still think TRT is the same as juicing no matter how he spins it

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        Haha maybe, he seem confident he would pass a blood/urine test. I wouldn’t count Rashad out yet. I am getting kind of tired of the anticipation though they bicker like children.

        • Jujitsu Player says:

          I hope the fight (and Rashad) lives up to the build up. My money is on Jones but anything can happen.

  10. Norm says:

    Hendo puts on a show every time he gets in the cage period. He was smacking around silva when he got caught. How many people even get close to that dude. Plus this game didn’t start out as a weight class format if he wants to fight up a class or two who is to say no. I say give him the shot and see what shakes out if he wins huge upset if he loses then he got beat up by a monster either way I’m watching!

  11. Josh Crosscheck says:

    Top 5 MMA fighter of all time.

  12. jew jitsu says:

    I like Hendo alot
    But jds will knock him out in one combo
    That uppercut will knock hendos head off
    And you know hendo would try 2 box it out
    Gotta love it

  13. da boss says:

    man vitor won a bunch of fights hitting back of head never gets told shit and mario yama fag boy was ref and look wat he did to my boy erik silva my bad i had to get that off the chest hahahah
    WAR BJ
