History was made a few months back, albeit not the good kind, when the UFC cancelled a card after legendary light heavyweight Dan Henderson suffered an injury that kept him from a headlining tilt with champion Jon Jones. Henderson has been sidelined ever since, resting and rehabbing his bum knee while working towards a return to the ring in late February.
Unfortunately, it sounds like “Hendo” is still dealing with some health-related issues and is limited in the gym. While he expects to face Lyoto Machida at UFC 157 as planned, it’s clearly one step at a time for the beloved brawler…
“I’m feeling good. My knee is still not 100%…I’ve been training, but not at full steam. I think in a month I will be training and 100% focused for this fight.”
“I think this will be a very tough fight. Lyoto is an outstanding fighter, has many qualities, but hopefully I can do better.”
