Jon Jones recently began to talk about the possibility of stopping Dan Henderson via a one punch knockout when the two meet at UFC 151. Henderson, known for his legendary chin, wasn’t likely to take that one quietly and he did respond to Jones, as well as talking about other times fighters have been sold by the media as “without weakness” and his role as the underdog.

Quote (transcription via MMA Mania):
[My right hand] must be a pretty good trick. It’s kept me in the sport this long and people keep wanting to see it. It’s kept me around for a long time. But it’s more about positioning. TKO me? I’d love for him to try. That means he’s coming after me and I won’t have to chase him…. One of the biggest assets I have is my experience, my timing, my striking, my takedowns and the ability to mix it up…. I love being the underdog. I like being a little challenged. I need to step up and prove people wrong. It adds to my fire and motivates me…. I feel right at home when I’m wrestling. He’s taller and longer and gives problems in the clinch. But it’ll give me the opportunity to put him on his back.
