UFC Quick Quote: Dan Henderson matches up 'real well' with Jon Jones

via www.fighter-magazine.com

"It's unfortunate that Rashad got hurt, but you know, it's happened twice now. He's had people step in. ... All I know is, if I have to, I'll pull out the age card and just say I should have seniority here. I'm getting older. Rashad's got a little more time than I do. ... I think I'm a tough fight for anybody. If you're in a fight with me, you're definitely going to know you're in a fight. I don't know if really Jon Jones has felt that too much in his career. I definitely would test that out. I think style-wise I match up real well with him."

-- Former Pride and Strikeforce Champion Dan Henderson tells Sherdog.com he's running out of time to win a UFC title before he calls it a career and his seniority should get him a crack at Jon Jones before Rashad Evans, provided "Suga" defeats Phil Davis on Jan. 28, 2012, at UFC on Fox 2 and "Bones" gets past Lyoto Machida at UFC 140 this Saturday night (Dec. 10, 2011). That and "Hendo" feels like he matches up "real well" with the 205-pound king. Jones may be lanky and move with the speed and agility of a cat but a well timed and even better placed overhand right "H-bomb" will put a stop to all that noise with the quickness. And that's what Henderson thinks he can do, if given the opportunity, of course. At 41-years-old and counting, if it's going to happen, it needs to happen soon. But will it? Is Jones vs. Henderson a sexier match-up than Jones vs. Evans? And will a certain "Dragon" throw a wrinkle in all this and take the title back to Brazil? Sort it out, Maniacs.
