Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) photographer Josh Hedges was on the scene at the Heroes Martial Arts Gym in San Jose, Calif., on Nov. 16, 2011, to shoot several of the UFC 139 combatants during the pay-per-view (PPV) event's open media workouts.
Naturally, the dynamic duo who will be featured in the main event of the evening -- Mauricio Rua vs. Dan Henderson -- were on the scene to promote their clash, as well as work up one of the last few real sweats prior to fight night at the HP Pavilion on Saturday evening (Nov. 19, 2011).
But, the two Pride FC legends were not alone.
