There was supposed to be a pay-per-view last September headlined with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones taking on Dan Henderson. A late injury to Henderson and Jones’ refusal for another opponent saw the event get cancelled.
Almost a year later and Jones doesn’t have interest in Henderson after watching his last two performances.
“I have no wishes to fight Dan Henderson,” said Jones. “Dan Henderson is a guy who, you know, he’s done a lot for this sport already, he’s a lot older. I think he’s a guy a lot of people would expect me to beat anyways. So I have no big dreams of fighting Dan Henderson.”
Hendrson lost decisions to Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans since returning from the knee injury that caused him to miss UFC 151.
Jones will return at UFC 165 when he looks to break the record for most title defenses in his division. In his way is Sweden’s Alexander Gustafsson.
UFC 165 is September 21 from the Air Canada Centre.
