Dan Henderson talks about his contract situation and TRT usage
The last time Dan Henderson fought in Brazil was at something called the Brazil Open back in 1997. He beat Crezio de Souza in that fight, before going on to defeat Eric Smith with a guillotine choke in the "lightweight" finals. Those were the first baby steps towards a long and storied career for the one-time collegiate wrestler. When Henderson returns to Brazil nearly two decades later to face Vitor Belfort at UFC Fight Night 32 -- a rematch to their 2006 fight at the similarly numbered Pride 32 -- he expects things to be a little more relaxed. Henderson told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s MMA Hour that back when he visited Brazil in the day things got a little dicey. "Obviously it was my first fight ever, but it was 17 years ago," he said. "It was definitely an interesting night. I thought I was going to get mobbed by the fans because the ref stopped the fight on a TKO, and they weren’t used to that back then. They kind of rushed the cage a little bit, and I wasn’t sure if they were going after me or the ref. But yeah, it was an interesting very first fight."
