Pro MMA Radio interview – Dan Henderson

UFC middleweight and light heavyweight contender Dan Henderson stopped by Pro MMA Radio on Monday night to speak with host, Larry Pepe.

Here are some highlights from their discussion:

Henderson fought a very tough three round decision victory against Rousimar Palhares at UFC 88 in September.

He caught Palhares with some big shots and the guy would just not go away; the toughness of the Brazilian’s chin was a surprise to Henderson.

Henderson was able to clarify, his height is really 5’11” and not 6’1″ which most stats show.

The TUF Coaches Countdown Show

by:  Jack Bratcher

Tonight (Fri. Sept. 12), The Ultimate Fighter Coaches Countdown show aired on Spike TV.  The point of the show was to give people an overview of Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, the coaches of the eighth season of The Ultimate Fighter, which debuts Wed. Sept. 17 at 9pm CST/7pm PST.

It is evident that Frank Mir has enormous respect for Nogueira and referred to him as one of his “heroes.”  He also said that he would not disrespect one of his “idols” by stepping into the cage any less than one-hundred percent prepared.

Nogueira also showed respect for the younger Mir, calling him “a very talented kid.”

One of the most interesting aspects of the Mir/Nogueira fight is that we have PRIDE’s top submission heavyweight facing the UFC’s top submission heavyweight.  Even though PRIDE is no more, this is still one of those big fights we never could have seen just a couple of years ago.

New Interview with Fedor Emelianenko

The Last Emperor had a meeting with Randy Couture just days ago.  Whenever these two legendary figures come together for any reason cameras flash, video rolls, and microphones record.  Fedor talks a little about the meeting with Randy, the extent of his hand injury, who may win between Barnett and Arlovski, the Fight Fedor reality show and much more.  Fedor makes news anytime he comes to America but the rumor mill starts churning in overdrive whenever the Natrual and the Last Emperor sit down together.  The hope is that one day these two legends can meet inside the ring to decide once and for all who is the top heavyweight in the world.  As each day passes, legal issues and father time gnaw away at the possibility of the super fight ever taking place.
