Dan Henderson On UFC 205 Title: ‘It’s The Only Belt I Haven’t Won’

Dan Henderson doesn’t believe Jon Jones will walk through Rashad Evans this evening in the main event of UFC 145.

“Hendo,” who is currently awaiting the chance to cash in his title-opportunity, talked about the Jones-Evans fight and his future during a recent appearance on MMA Junkie Radio.

I think it’s going to be a lot closer than what the fans think, that Jones will just walk right through him. I don’t think so at all. Rashad looked real solid in his last fight, and if he comes out with a good game plan – I definitely think he’s going to put Jones on his back.

Since defeating Mauricio “Shogun” Rua last year, Henderson has remained on the sidelines, waiting for the opportunity to present itself in regards to the UFC light heavyweight title. Rumors of him turning down several fights have been made public, but Henderson has his reason.

It’s the only belt (UFC 205 crown) I haven’t won, and it’s on my list of things to accomplish before I retire.

Henderson sports a 29-8 overall record, including five wins in seven Octagon fights. A Henderson-Jones or Henderson-Evans match would make for some very interesting style points.
