Former Olympic wrestler and current Strikeforce mixed martial arts fighter Dan Henderson has challenged the Strikeforce 205lb. weightclass champion Rafael Fejao for the March 5th event.
Henderson talked about his plans and strategy for the upcoming bout, and how he plans on winning the Strikeforce title:
“He looks like he works real hard and he’s dangerous up there. He throws a little bit more on the looping side of the punches and not overly straight but still just as dangerous so I need to be careful up there. I don’t think it’s a secret that both of us are probably going to look for a knockout. That’s most of our finishes, when we finish a guy, it’s by strikes. I definitely plan on trying to knock him silly and pressure him the whole fight. … It’s more of a chess match. I need to make sure that I go out there and I implement my gameplan no matter who I’m fighting, whether they’re respectful or not respectful, they’re still going to be trying to knock my head off. So I need to be careful when I’m out there and get the job done.”
