There aren’t any 42-year olds still fighting at the level of light heavyweight Dan Henderson, as even the most able athletes tend to see skills start wearing off in their late 30s. However, Henderson is as good now as he’s ever been, picking up wins in his last four bouts including success against Mauricio Rua and Fedor Emelianenko.
While it might seem as though someone at Henderson’s age would be eying retirement, “Hendo” recently spoke about his future and implied he planned to fight for at least another year so long as his body holds up.
“I have at least two more fights ahead of me next year, so I guess that would make at least two more fights after that.”
