Dan “Hendo” Henderson showed that he can stand and trade with any fighter in the world at UFC 139 last night. His fight with Shogun Rua may go down as one of the greatest fights in UFC history, if not MMA history.
Hendo is relentless inside the cage and for that reason is a huge fan favorite. He may look like a hockey player, but he fights like a true warrior. Dan Henderson looked a little bit gassed in the 4th and 5th rounds last night, but nobody wanted to see that fight end.
Dan Henderson seems to have assured himself a shot at gold with the win last night. Many questions, however, still remain about the 41-year-old fighter.
