Dan Henderson says Chael Sonnen was not in his training camp for Jon JonesPosted on August 28, 2012, 10:15 AM by Mike Drahota
Dan Henderson speaks to the MMA Hour to discuss many of the topics surrounding all the UFC 151 hoopla. He said his knee felt like it was just dangling there after he injured it. Obviously Henderson expresses the point of view that he would not pass up the fight like Jon Jones did. When questioned about how early he knew of his injury, Hendo responded:
"I was very optimistic, I was told the MCL heals real fast. I had just under a month before the fight. Yeah, I was pretty optimistic it would get better. I could do even my cross-training, I could move around on my feet."
Henderson is a true warrior of MMA, but has undergone some flack for not revealing his injury sooner. He said that he still did not really wish he had told the UFC sooner. He was also sure to state that Chael Sonnen was not in his training camp, something that Jones's camp had thought was true. Overall, a good interview that clears up some of the floating details of the whole situation.
