DAN HENDERSON TALKS “JONES VS. MACHIDA” AND ADDS HE’D BE A BAD MATCH-UP FOR JONES
UFC legend, Dan Henderson, gives his thoughts on the upcoming UFC 140 clash this weekend between UFC champion, Jon Jones and number one contender, Lyoto Machida.
“I think obviously Jon Jones is probably the favorite in that one. With his style and his wrestling ability, he should be able to control the fight well. Lyoto likes to stay on the outside, and I think that’s probably not the opponent to do it against.
Lyoto’s real quick and he’s a little bit goofy. He’s got a nice straight left hand. He definitely could catch Jon Jones. I don’t think Jon Jones’ chin has really been tested much because he is hard to hit. Anything can happen in a fight, but I definitely see Jones picking him apart from the outside and probably taking him down and beating him up.”
When asked for his own chances against Jones, Henderson added:
“I think I’m a tough fight for anybody. If you’re in a fight with me, you’re definitely going to know you’re in a fight. I don’t know if really Jon Jones has felt that too much in his career. I definitely would test that out. I think style-wise I match up real well with him. That’s pretty much one of the last things I’ve got on my list for my career, to get a UFC title and keep it for a little while.”
