Henderson: I’m going to try to knock him silly

Dan Henderson: I’m going to use the best tools that I have to try to win this fight and knocking him out is one of those things, one of my best tools. I’m going to at least try to knock him silly, put him on his back that way, take him down and try to wear him out.

Rashad is dangerous, he’s a good wrestler. He’s able to just come at you and be real solid. He’s good on his feet, he’s solid everywhere. 

Rashad’s accomplished a lot in MMA and it’s going to be a battle. It’s one of the things I absolutely love about this sport and that’s why I do it, the challenge different opponents bring. He’s a different challenge than anyone I’ve fought, so I’m really looking forward to that. That’s what gets me excited about this fight.

Will I defeat Rashad Evans? Absolutely. I’m going to do everything in my power to make that happen. I’m definitely capable and I’m going to be training my ass off to make sure I can do it. As long as I’m in shape, there’s nobody that can beat me.
