Dan Henderson plans on fighting two or three more yearsPosted on March 22, 2012, 06:28 PM by Trent Reinsmith
At 41-years old Dan Henderson has some miles on his body, making his MMA debut in 1997. Since that fight, a TKO victory over Crezio de Souza, he has gone 29-8, with his last fight, a 25 minute battle with Marucio Rua, considered by many to be one of the best main event fights in UFC history.
Henderson is currently laying in wait, hoping to get a shot at the winner of the Jon Jones versus Rashad Evans UFC Light Heavyweight title bout, which will headline UFC 145 on April 21. If you think that Henderson is looking for that to be his final fight in the UFC you would be way off base.
Henderson has three fights remaining on his UFC contract and if he has his way he’ll add an extension to that and keep fighting for the promotion into his mid 40’s, “I've got three more fights on my deal, and I'll probably sign one more deal after that. So two or three more years [left].” Henderson then added, "I definitely won't be as old as Randy [Couture] when I retire!" – for more see ESPN.
