Dan Henderson Says He Has ‘A Couple More Years’ Left In MMA

Former Strikeforce champion Dan Henderson has put together a Hall of Fame-worthy career over the past 12 years. Now, as he hits his 40s, Henderson knows his career is winding down.

First, though, Henderson will attempt to re-claim his spot in the UFC’s light heavyweight division when he faces Lyoto Machida at UFC 157.

“I have to fight a couple more years,” said Henderson, during an interview with Tatame. “I have at least two more fights ahead of me next year, so I guess that would make at least two more fights after that.”

Henderson (29-8) sat on the sidelines for much of 2012 waiting for a title shot and then due to a knee injury. He was forced to watch Vitor Belfort take his spot and meet Jon Jones for the UFC title, and now must defeat Machida (18-3) to secure his standing.
