I would rather fight Bones Jones never instead of two years from now. If I knew I had to fight Bones in two years my life would be like that one super depressing (yet uplifting?) Michael Keaton movie where he knows he is dying so he makes video diaries to his unborn child. MMA legend Dan Henderson does not want to take part in my Michael Keaton inspired death march, he would much rather fight Bones now than in two years.
Is it me with my paranoid mind, or is it pretty Sunday Morning Rumor Mill worthy that with one fight left on his Strikeforce contract, Hendo might be positioning himself for a title unification fight with the reigning and injury free UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones? Somewhere Rashad Evans is biting into a breakfast burrito sadly contemplating his year plus vacation that went from him being a number one contender to a possible third or fourth rung for all we know, now.
Granted this is conjecture and my weakly brewed homemade iced coffee hasn’t really kicked in, but in a recent interview with Tatame, it looks like Hendo is game for a Jones fight as soon as he is done dropping an H-bomb on mother Russia.
“I’d rather fight him now than in two years… He’s just been improving so much, and he’ll be a lot tougher to beat in two years and I’m getting older, so…
“I was surprised by the way Shogun came to the fight. It seemed like he was very unsure, not prepared, and that’s not Shogun anybody wants to see. It’s unfortunate, but it happens when you’re not in shape. When you’re not in shape, it doesn’t matter what your skills are”
