Dan HendersonDan Henderson has won held two Pride belts at one time. He’s fought the top fighters in the world at middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight, usually coming out on top. He even won a UFC tournament more than 14 years ago.

One thing Hendo has never done, however, is win a UFC divisional title. He’ll get another crack at a UFC belt when he faces Jon Jones for the light heavyweight strap at UFC 151 in Las Vegas. And at 41 years of age, Henderson knows these opportunities are getting more and more rare.

Nearly everyone gives him the punchers chance to land the devastating H-Bomb against the younger, faster champion, but Henderson doesn’t count on such measures. All he counts on is trying to win every round and not letting this opportunity slip through his fingers.
