Dan Henderson On Years Left Inside The Octagon

Dan Henderson turned 43-years-old in the summer and though he’s riding two UFC defeats, the former PRIDE and Strikeforce fighter isn’t ready to retire.

“I’m a year or two away from that,” said Henderson. “At least five fights. We’ll see what happens, but my body is feeling good. As long as I can get that going, I’ll be fine. But I don’t see myself fighting for more than five or six fights.”

In the main event of today’s UFC Fight Night 32, Henderson meets Vitor Belfort in a rematch from their 2006 PRIDE fight. Back then, Henderson took the decision win.

Henderson went down with a knee injury in late 2012, which saw him miss out on a light heavyweight title fight. He’s suffered back-to-back split-decision defeats from Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans.

Belfort’s two appearances for the UFC this year have seen him leave the victor by stoppage. He defeated Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold.

UFC Fight Night 32 is today, November 9. It comes from Brazil’s Goiânia Arena and it can be seen on FOX Sports 1.
