When Dan Henderson finally meets Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title he will be 42 years old meaning he was a senior in high school when Jones was still an infant. However, the wily veteran has no plans of slowing down in the near future as long as his body holds up, and when considering his recent success it’s hard to blame the former PRIDE/Strikeforce champion.

Henderson recently spoke about his approach to competition where he made it clear he expects to be taking to the cage in 2013 and beyond.

“I see myself fighting another couple years at least,” said Henderson in an interview with Fightlinker. “Right now I am taking it year by year, not necessarily fight by fight. I do feel as though I have a few good years left in me and I love to compete. I am training a lot smarter than I used to, I don’t beat my body up as bad as I used to.”

Jones Hopeful Henderson Will Avoid Trash-Talk

In Jones the 29-8 legend will take on an opponent unlike any he’s faced before, combining raw athletic ability with creative striking and technically sound grappling. It’s a match-up that clearly excites Henderson.

“It’ll probably be a more entertaining fight than if I had faced Rashad Evans. Evans would’ve looked to put me on my back and try to win the fight on the ground whereas Jones would be more apt to keep the fight standing,” admitted Henderson of Jones in comparison to the champ’s adversary two weeks ago at UFC 145. “I think the fans are happy that I will be facing Jones instead of Evans.”

No date has been set for Henderson’s shot at dethroning Jones though it seems late August or early September could be in line for the bout. “Hendo” is currently on a four-fight winning streak including success against Renato Sobral, Rafael Cavalcante, Fedor Emelianenko, and Mauricio Rua.
