Dan Henderson’s right hand is so lethal it has its own nickname – “The H-Bomb” – and it’s been responsible for obliterating many stars over the years.
The likes of Fedor Emelianenko, Wanderlei Silva, Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua, and Hector Lombard have all fallen to it, but of course the one that’s most talked about is scary demolition of Michael Bisping at UFC 100 which left ‘The Count’ reluctantly admitting he’s never been hit harder, though even nine years later he confesses he still can’t actually remember much of what happened that night.
Jake Shields also said ‘Hendo’ was the hardest-hitting opponent he ever faced, while Daniel Cormier came away from his fight against the veteran declaring he is one of the most powerful punchers of all-time.
”Dan Henderson, even when you’re close and he hits you from very very close, you can feel how heavy his hands are,” Cormier recalled.
Retired UFC fighter-turned-analyst Kenny Florian once ranked Henderson at No.1 in his list of the hardest hitters of all-time, while Randy Couture has confessed that the first time he was ever knocked out came at the hands of ‘Hendo’ during a sparring session.
