In case you didn’t know, Dan Henderson is a bad ass

Posted: March 25, 2014 in Commentary/Opinion

Dan Henderson just fought a brutal fight with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua Sunday night–that’s two days ago. And now he wants to fight again. When it was announced that Chris Weidman suffered an injury that would force his title fight with Lyoto Machida off UFC 173, Hendo jumped at the chance to fill in by sending the following tweet.

We know Henderson won’t get his wish, but it’s still a ballsy move by the 43 year old. The Weidman/Machida bout will be shifted to UFC 175 in July. He didn’t state whether he’d take the fight at his normal 205 pounds, or at middleweight–Machida’s new weight class, and one that Henderson has competed at several times in his career. Their last fight–a close split decision at UFC 157–took place at light heavyweight.

Shit, who knows? Maybe Henderson has another 5 or 10 years left in him.
