Dan Henderson: ‘I’ve had some unfortunate luck the last three fights’

Sunday, November 10, 2013

Dan Henderson spoke with Heido Androl for FOX Sports 2 before heading to the hospital, following his first round KO loss to Vitor Belfort Saturday night.

“I got caught with a  nice little uppercut,” said Hendo. “I felt like I was still aware of what was going on. I know he threw a head kick, and I was definitely dazed, for sure. But I would like to maybe fight out of it a little bit. But the ref is there to protect us, so I can’t complain too much.”

“I’m definitely not done. I got caught tonight and… you know, I was ready to go for this fight and I just got caught. That happens, I guess, after 16 years, it’s bound to happen.”

“I’m just going to continue getting back in there and win fights. This one I definitely got caught and got finished, and the last two could have easily went my way, and didn’t, so I’ve had some unfortunate luck the last three fights. But my body feels good and able to continue, and honestly, I haven’t felt this good in a while. So it’s just a bad night tonight.
