UFC President Dana White has said that middleweight contender Dan Henderson will be a shoo-in for the UFC Hall Of Fame following the 46-year-old’s loss to Michael Bisping on Saturday night at UFC 204.
In the last fight of his professional career, Henderson lost 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 via unanimous decision to finish his MMA career with a professional record of 32-15.
Although he was never a champion in the UFC, Henderson challenged for both the UFC Light Heavyweight and Middleweight championships.
He finishes his career with a 9-9 record in the UFC and White insists that he’s all but guaranteed a spot in the UFC’s Hall Of Fame.
“Oh yeah, absolutely!” White replied when asked if Henderson was a potential UFC Hall Of Famer.
“The fact that this guy is 46-years-old and is still fighting is insane, I can’t even believe it.”
Meanwhile, White added that Bisping’s next opponent will very much be determined off the next couple of shows with Chris Weidman set to fight Yoel Romero at UFC 205, Jacare Souza and Luke Rockhold to square off at UFC Fight Night 101 with Derek Brunson and Robert Whittaker also set to fight on the same card.
