Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Rashad Evans praises MMA legend, Dan Henderson following his impressive first round knockout win over Fedor Emelianenko this past weekend in Chicago, Illinois, adding he would love to fight Hendo down the line.

Evans, speaking via MMAMania.com, said:

“I’m a big Hendo fan. I picked him [against Fedor] even though I didn’t think he was really going to win, but it was a pleasant surprise. I would love to fight him. He’s getting better and better — not so much learning new techniques, but having a stronger competitive mentality.”

Evans goes head-to-head with former UFC light heavyweight champion, Tito Ortiz this weekend at UFC 133 in Philadelphia in a rematch of their drawn 2007 bout.
