UFC 151 Video: Dan Henderson Is Hoping Jon Jones Tries To Knock Him Out

SBN coverage of UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson

Quote (transcription via MMA Mania):

[My right hand] must be a pretty good trick. It's kept me in the sport this long and people keep wanting to see it. It's kept me around for a long time. But it's more about positioning. TKO me? I'd love for him to try. That means he's coming after me and I won't have to chase him.... One of the biggest assets I have is my experience, my timing, my striking, my takedowns and the ability to mix it up.... I love being the underdog. I like being a little challenged. I need to step up and prove people wrong. It adds to my fire and motivates me.... I feel right at home when I'm wrestling. He's taller and longer and gives problems in the clinch. But it'll give me the opportunity to put him on his back.
