Dan Henderson rings in New Year by making fun of UFC champ Jon Jones

Dan Henderson cares about his fans and doesn't want them to end up like UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, who had too much to drink one night last summer and crashed his Bentley into a utility pole.

Sounds like former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight number one contender Dan Henderson is getting ready to trash talk his way back into a title fight against Jon Jones, assuming he can overcome the obstacle known as Lyoto Machida at the UFC 157 pay-per-view (PPV) event next month in Anaheim.

From his official Twitter:

Henderson is taking a jab at current 205-pound kingpin Jon Jones, who plead guilty to Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) last summer in New York after wrapping his Bentley around a utility pole. They were expected to settle their differences at UFC 151 later that year; however, "Hendo" blew out his knee and the event was scrapped.

Anyone think we'll get to see this fight materialize in 2013?
