We deal in curses and the mystical here at MiddleEasy. Next to our alchemy lab in the office we have a state of the art GE brand disenchanting table with a healthy supply of vampire dust and troll lips. It’s going to these lengths that we are able to identify the negative energy surrounding fighters that come out in sunglasses, have Eminem playing or God forbid in sunglasses with Eminem as their walkout music. If a fighter did that it may result in a serious injury, and we don’t want to have that on our minds, we are guilty enough.
Normally when fighter X says he want’s fighter Y next it’s an MMA case of counting one’s chicken’s before they hatch, but maybe not for Hendo. MMAWeekly caught up with ‘Decision Dan’ (80% of fight fans misrepresent that nickname) to ask him about a bunch of stuff, then Jon Jones became the topic of conversation.
“I do think that would be a fight I would enjoy,” “He’s awkward and unorthodox and it creates something to think about and how to beat that, and that’s what excites me these days. Guys that are a big challenge, and he would be more cause he’s awkward and dangerous at the same time, but I think he matches up really well with me style wise.”
“I’m not one to buy into things too quickly. I’ve been doing this for a long time and seen a lot of guys beat a lot of tough guys really quick and then die out,”
Is this a case of Dan Henderson looking past Shogun this weekend? Or does Hendo know something more? I think he does and I will let you know what it is, dear reader.
Last weekend THQ released a video of Cain Velasquez defeating JDS in UFC Undisputed 3, later in the week they released this video of Hendo getting soccer kicked into oblivion by Shogun. Does the loser of the UFC Undisputed gameplay videos go on to win their scheduled matchup and does Dan Henderson somehow know and understand this? I guess we will find out this weekend.
