Henderson spoke via his official blog for Yahoo Sports:
“It seemed like against Werdum, he got cocky with his submission defense and though he wouldn’t get submitted. I think he didn’t do what was needed to get out of the triangle quickly enough, and he paid the price.
We all make mistakes, and everybody can get caught. With the loss to Silva, I think he showed up a little out of shape and the size difference definitely got to him in that fight. Again, no one wins them all and it just happens Fedor has lost back-to-back fights.”
But the Strikeforce Light-Heavyweight champion knows well enough to prepare for a very tough Fedor:
“But I do expect Fedor to be more motivated and also think he’ll be in better shape. I think he’ll try to hit me with the same exact punches he would have tried to hit me with if he had won his last two fights. He’s still the same dangerous fighter and still has that big right hand and his submissions.”
Saturday July 30th is a fantastic Strikeforce event with a handful of great fights. But without a doubt Henderson vs Fedor could possibly be the biggest fight the promotion has ever boasted.
