Dan Henderson on Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida.
“It’s definitely a big fight, but my last few have been big. My conditioning feels great and obviously tactically in this one as it’s a little different because he’s a little longer and my game plan changes with each opponent. I’ve got a couple of real long, tall guys to train with, so I feel good now,” This is what UFC Light heavyweight top contender Dan Henderson said about his upcoming title fight against current champ, Jon Jones on UFC 151.
In line with this, Hendo is very much aware that if he gets to dethrone Bones, he will have to prepare to meet Lyoto “the dragon” Machida, who was awarded by UFC president Dana White the privilege of fighting the winner between Hendo and Bones in UFC 151.
Actually, White said that the most impressive winner between Mauricio Rua-Brandon Vera, and Machida-Ryan Bader matches will get the opportunity to fight for the title. And although Rua also won, it was Lyoto’s victory that came in more impressive.
In the meantime, Hendo is busy preparing for his upcoming fight and is very much aware what lies ahed of him.
