Dan Henderson: I have unfinished business with Jon Jones

 

Dan Henderson was scheduled to challenge Jon Jones for his light heavyweight title at UFC 151 on September 1st. Unfortunately Henderson was forced to withdraw due to an injury and the UFC scraped the whole event. Henderson sat on the shelf for 5 months before losing a decision to Lyoto Machida, losing his number one contender status. However, Henderson would still like his shot and feels he could be close with a win over Rashad Evans:

"I feel like if I do have an impressive win then I'm right back in there," Henderson stated.  "I think a not so great performance but a win does something for me, but not a lot.  I'm sure I'll just fight somebody else at that point.  An impressive win over Rashad would possibly put me right in there.  That's still one of my goals, that's why I'm doing this."

Henderson's long standing desire to fight Jones still burns inside of him, and he knows that if he can be impressive as the main event at UFC 161 a title shot isn't far off.

"I definitely have some unfinished business with Jon Jones," Henderson stated.  "Hopefully that happens for myself, Jon Jones and the fans."

Jones charges forward and takes Hendo down. And then destroys him there. Jones is that good

THIS!!! I know he won a UFC tourney but he wants that belt! He could defend it once or twice I think.

I like Hendo alot but at this stage most of his fights against the elite are left to a punchers chance. Anything can happen but the odds are certainly not in his favor by a long shot. Evans is a much better fighter.

I like Hendo a lot, but sadly, I think he loses to Evans. Then the discussion about fighting JBJ is moot.

Hendo needs to fight Jones, unless Jones does wat Machida did n contantly move he's gonna have a hard time with Hendo

Jones would have a great chance to be the first to stop him with strikes.

One of my all time favorite fighters, would love to see this guy win the belt before he retires out. Imma keep my faith in Dan the fucking man Henderson. If he was to win the belt, i think it would make him the Best p4p fighter without a doubt. I think he could arguably still be considered one of the Best P4P fighters anyhow.
