On tonight’s episode of HDNet’s “Inside MMA,” former PRIDE Welterweight champion and current Strikeforce fighter Dan Henderson will join the panel to discuss his upcoming bout for the Strikeforce Middleweight belt against the current champion Jake Shields.
The bout, which takes place on April 17, will be Henderson’s Strikeforce debut. Henderson will also talk about the many changes he has made within MMA organizations and whether or not that has posed challenges in his career.
