Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson defeated fellow Pride FC veteran Fedor Emelianenko last night at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois in one of the biggest moments of his legendary career.
The fight was action-packed and reminded everyone why these two fighters are as revered as they are. They both came to fight and they both left it all in the cage, but it was the smaller Henderson who took home the first round TKO victory.
Check out Henderson’s post-fight interview below with MMAFighting.com’s Ariel Helwani, in which he discusses what he considers one of the most important wins of his career and his desire to unify the Strikeforce 205lbs. championship with the UFC equivalent.
