Dan Henderson Reflects On His UFC 199 Win

Dan Henderson

Dan Henderson was emotional in the moments following his thrilling knockout of Hector Lombard at UFC 199 Saturday night.

With all of his kids in attendance at The Forum, Henderson admitted that this might have been his final fight.

“I’m not sure what’s going to happen,” he said, as tears started to form. “That could have been the last one of my career.”

Henderson connected with a head-kick on Lombard, a former Team Quest teammate of his, and followed up with a perfectly-placed back-elbow that dropped Lombard out cold. The former Bellator champion was left on the canvas for several minutes after.

“I said in an interview that I was going to finish him with a head kick,” Henderson said. “He’s short enough that I can get my leg up that far.

“He’s a tough guy, but that felt good.”

Lombard almost got the finish himself in the opening round, recovering from a Henderson shot and rocking him. But Henderson survived and thrived in the second.

Henderson now has 25 wins combined in UFC/Pride/WEC and Strikeforce history, which is second-most to Wanderlei Silva.
