Dan Henderson is one of the true legends of the sport, a grizzled veteran that has been fighting since the no holds barred days of the ’90s. What’s truly amazing though is that he’s still at the very top of the mixed martial arts game, regularly taking on the best the sport has to offer and often winning those fights despite the odds.
On Saturday at UFC 199, Henderson is facing Hector Lombard in what Dan admits may be his final bout in the cage. We don’t want to let that happen without giving some sort of homage to the man they call Dangerous Dan, so we decided to collect five of his most impressive knockouts to remind everyone what an absolute stud he is.
vs Michael Bisping
The H-Bomb was already a thing, but this fight made it a legend. Back in 2009, Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping became coaches for the 9th season of the Ultimate Fighter in a Team US vs. Team UK format. After a contentious season that saw Bisping try to get under the relaxed Hendo’s skin, Dan knocked Bisping’s block off at UFC 100 in a finish that ended up being the biggest moment of the classic card. Take a close look at the slow motion replay and you’ll notice Henderson kissing his fist after knocking Bisping down with the overhand right.
