Dan Henderson not waiting for title shot

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Dan Henderson recently appeared on MMAJunkie Radio, and said his last years in the UFC will not be spent waiting for a light heavyweight title shot.

“If the timing’s right, I’d do it,” Henderson today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). “If not, I’ll beat the next top guy.”

“I feel that I’m probably the guy to beat in the weight class. I know that if I fought Jones, I’d knock him on his ass. But if I don’t get that opportunity, I’m not going to sit and dwell on it and wait for it. I waited last year, and I’m not going to do it this year.”

Dan Henderson fights former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machidat UFC 157 on Feb. live on PPV.
