Hendo: Sat will put 'too old' talk to rest

 

In 2011 Dan Henderson beat Mauricio Rua in one of the best fights in the history of mixed martial arts.

He had no fights in 2012, and 2013 was tough, losing split decisions to Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans, before being kicked unconscious by Vitor Belfort. Then Henderson brutally beat Rua in a rematch. 

Now he is fighting the undefeated Daniel Cormier at UFC 173 Saturday night live on PPV.

“I’m not here only to entertain,” said Henderson, 43. “I can’t remember the last time I had an easy opponent. That’s just what I expect, though. I have goals that I want to achieve, and I can only do that by beating the top guys.”

“I just feel like I know what I’m capable of doing and how I match up against certain guys, and my body feels great right now. People can say I’m too old, but I think this fight will be a true test to kind of put that whole way of thinking to rest.”

Did Rogan forget that Jake Shields handled Hendo in pretty much the same way a few years ago?

I wasn't being that serious, but I guess that post comes off poorly.Obviously Dan Henderson is a living legend and what he is still able to do in MMA is ridiculously impressive.At the same time Cormier needs to win this fight, the sport needs a challenger for Jones other than Gustaffson.

I don't know anybody who isn't a fan of Ace, but Dan would have won that fight regardless...

This. I don't know why people are saying everybody picked Silva. He has gotten more hate than anyone else on here recently.
