Dan Henderson Wants to Win Every Round of Showdown vs. Jon Jones

If Dan Henderson (29-8) has his way, he plans to defeat Jon Jones (16-1) without leaving any hesitation in the fans mind who won the fight.

"With Jon Jones, I prepare on winning every round," said Henderson. "I want to make sure I win every round so there is no question."

While Henderson looks to dominate every round, if the time is right, he knows he can end the fight early.

"If I can hit him in the right spot, at the right time, and finish him that's even better," said Henderson.

With the exception of a DQ lose, Jones is undefeated in his MMA career. He won the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship in 2011 and has defended it successfully three times, all against former champions. Henderson is on a four fight win streak and looks to win his first UFC championship.

"I don't plan on wasting this opportunity and making sure I come out on top no matter what it takes," said Henderson. "I know I can beat anybody out there if I perform the way I can."

Jones vs. Henderson takes place September 1 at UFC 151.
