In this video, which was released this morning (Nov. 6, 2012), Dan Henderson talks frankly about his feelings at being sidestepped by Sonnen and why he thinks the decision to award his Team Quest colleague a shot at Jones' title just because he has a "big mouth" is "demeaning for the sport."

"I think it's demeaning for the sport. You have guys that are in line for a title shot and then someone else gets it, doesn't matter who it is, if they don't deserve it, the sport loses a little bit of integrity when that happens. It only happens because of Chael having a big mouth, which is fine. It's not Chael's fault that he got the opportunity, but at the same time, I'm not the one to go out and talk shit. I wanna earn it. I wanna earn it the right way."

Dan Henderson: "Sonnen's title shot demeaning for sport"

Dan Henderson: "It's a bad decision for the sport"

Dan Henderson: "Talking your way into a title shot is demeaning"

Dan Henderson: "This is an absolute travesty to the sport"

Dan Henderson: "Chael getting a title shot makes a mockery of MMA"

 

We get it. Dan Henderson is not a fan of his buddy talking his way into the title shot.

Demeaning, but entertaining. Just like a good strip club. Phone Post

Hendo's 100% right. But something about him saying it about a teammate rubs me the wrong way.

Hendo is worried. Why?

He knows Chael will demolish JBJ and he is worried he'll have to face Chael for the title.

It's a political game being played right now by Hendo. Phone Post

It's also demeaning when you dont tell DFW that you're injured and thereby give him less time to find a replacement fighter.

Had Hendo told Dana when it happened he might have been able to save the event, possibly fight Sonnen on 151, he wouldnt have been in that armbar so his arm would be fine now. He would have won and probably would be headlining the Superbowl card in Feb vs Hendo.

Dan Henderson has a history of this

 

he no longer talks to and sued his Teammate Matt Lindland

He tried to sue Randy Couture a former teammate

He is badmouthing his teammate Chael Sonnen.

 

I am sure in some respects Henderson is a nice guy, but he is all about himself, he puts himself first and will step on his teammates and squash them to the earth it means he can get furthur ahead, he could learn something from Chael Sonnen regarding being unselfish and supportive of others.

 

I don't think he ever sued Randy. Phone Post
