UFC 75: Rampage plans to make it an 'MMA fight' with Henderson

Rampage UFC 75


"Dan Henderson is a very tough guy and he don't give up either. He's unpredictable. He's a wild, unpredictable guy [and] it's always hard to fight that type of guy. He has a Greco roman wrestling background which I think is pretty good for a fight. It's a type of wrestling that not a whole lot of people do, you know? A lot of people wrestle collegiate or freestyle because that's what you do in high school. I wanted to do Greco roman wrestling because the way I wrestled my coach thought I would be good at Greco roman wrestling. I couldn't find no where to go for Greco roman wrestling. Not a lot of wrestlers are as good at that so that's the most dangerous point ... it's not a wrestling match so I think that as long as I keep this from being a wrestling match I think everything will be ok. Because I'm a fighter, that's what I am. I'm not real good at wrestling, I'm not real good at kickboxing, I'm not really good at Jiu Jitsu, I'm good at MMA. So I'm going to make it an MMA fight, that's what it is. We're not doing a wrestling match."
