In a recent interview, UFC light heavyweight champion refereed to Dan Henderson as a one trick pony. This is due to his H-Bomb of a right hand. Jones also stated he wanted to be the first person to knockout the former Pride & Strikeforce champion. Henderson responded to those comments.
“[My right hand] must be a pretty good trick. It’s kept me in the sport this long and people keep wanting to see it. It’s kept me around for a long time. But it’s more about positioning. TKO me? I’d love for him to try. That means he’s coming after me and I won’t have to chase him.
One of the biggest assets I have is my experience, my timing, my striking, my takedowns and the ability to mix it up…. I love being the underdog. I like being a little challenged. I need to step up and prove people wrong. It adds to my fire and motivates me…. I feel right at home when I’m wrestling. He’s taller and longer and gives problems in the clinch. But it’ll give me the opportunity to put him on his back.”
