Following his successful title defense against Rashad Evans at UFC 145, Jon Jones has immediately turned his attention to his next opponent. Dana White announced that Dan Henderson, coming off a dramatic win over Mauricio Rua in a spectacular fight, would be the man to get the next shot at Jones' title and it led to Jon hitting up Twitter with a question.
Jones asked his followers this about Henderson:
When one fan saw fit to try to redirect the conversation from reach to power, Jones was very honest about the situation.
He didn't run from the fact that Hendo will have the power edge:
Henderson is much more plodding on the feet than Jones or Evans, but he has a somewhat freakish ability to always manage to find a way to land his right hand. It's no secret that he's looking to uncork the powerful right, but opponents still keep getting hit with it.
Jones should be able to work from the outside with success and avoid Henderson ever really connecting clean, but Henderson also has a great chin that will allow him to take the chance of eating a big shot in exchange for closing distance.
"Bones" deserves to be the heavy favorite coming in to the bout, but no one should ever put anything past Dan Henderson.
