UFC Quick Quote: Dan Henderson set to 'kick ass' against Anderson Silva at UFC 82

Dan Henderson UFC 82

"I'm excited. I'm ready to go kick his ass. Style-wise, I'm just a bad fight for him. He's very tough, very talented, but he hasn't fought anybody like me. My strength is the clinch game, and I don't get out of position there to allow strikes. That's what he thrives on - guys that are out of position and not very good in that clinch. For me, that's where I'm going to beat him up, and if he gets there with me, I'm going to be taking him down and beating him up on the ground."

-- Dan Henderson sounds extremely confident going into his title fight with UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva, at UFC 82: "Pride of a Champion" on March 2 from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, according to a recent interview with Brawl Sports. "Dangerous" Dan feels like his has the perfect style to take out the "Spider" once and for all. Rich Franklin played the clinch game (once) ... and lost twice. However, this should be a totally different fight thanks in large part to Henderson's superb Greco Roman wrestling pedigree. Talk about an amazing must-see match up.

Note: The article also reveals that Henderson has signed a five-fight contract extension.
