Dan Henderson is the current PRIDE middleweight title holder and once held both the PRIDE middleweight and light heavyweight titles simultaniously. He recently spoke with MMAWeekly and quickly touched on a variety of topics.
Henderson On Jumping Between Middleweight And Light Heavyweight:
I’m right in between the two weight classes. It’s pretty easy to cut the weight.
Henderson On Upcoming Opponent Anderson Silva:
He’s tough. He’s definitely proven that he’s a force to be reckoned with.
Henderson On His Status With The UFC:
I’m kind of in the twilight of my career, don’t have that many years left of fighting. I don’t want to jump around at all. I was in Pride for seven years, so I kind of like to stay where I’m at and build relationships that way.
Henderson On Moving Up Again To Light Heavyweight:
I would definitely want to fight for that title again. (I’ll) see what I’ve got to do to get back there.
