“Bones” has successfully defeated Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans since claiming the belt from Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. All four are former champs in the division.
Henderson earned his shot at Jones by scoring a decision victory over Rua in what many considered to be the “Fight of the Year” in late 2011. He is a former Strikeforce and Pride champion.
