Henderson speaks on Bisping, Silva/Franklin, Greasegate, and more

Henderson stopped by the forums for an unannounced question and answer session, and had a lot of interesting things to say regarding his opponents, Bisping's comments towards him, the differences between the UFC and Pride, and more.

Yep, this was also good.



When told of how Bisping said his "stand up is on a different level" than Henderson's

I haven't really put my game plan together yet. But I'm pretty sure that we'll be standing up at some point during the fight, so I'll try not to get flummoxed by Bisping's next level striking. Now that I know it's that good, I might just pull guard.

The pull guard thing had me laughing. He also mentions something about "knocking the tea and crumpets" out of him.

It's real hard not to like Hendo.

Hendo's gonna leave him talking with an irish accent when the fight's done.

I agree with Hendo being hard not to like. I was still bitter when he knocked out Wanderlei, but a buddy of mine and I ran into him at a bar in Las Vegas, and he was damn near the nicest dude I've met.

The "leave him with an Irish accent" part had me laughing, lol.

If Chuck is in shape he should win, unless shogun is in shape.

Man, i'm pumped for this season of The Ultimate Fighter.

So many people i know are all "man, who the hell wants to watch this season, why is Dan Henderson coaching, he's not a big name"

I'm more pumped for Hendo to coach over any other coach the season has had, and i hope he knocks the tar out of Bisping. haha

Hendo has got more experience then Bisping,has got better wrestling,and a better set of whiskers.That being said,Bisping has one chance,thats on his feet.He might be a little more technical then Dan,but thats his only advantage.I think that Hendo could groundnpound Count Mike anyday.Bisping will get tired of being owned on the ground and will reach,walking into either a big right hand or another takedown.It will be good to see Hendo onTUF.Dan fought so much in Japan and was not very well known in North America,and its just nice to see a little bit of recognition in his home country.
