Dan Henderson: “I would love to have that chance to fight Fedor”

Former UFC and PRIDE fighter, Dan Henderson has revealed one day he would love to face, arguably the best heavyweight fighter in the world, WAMMA heavyweight champion, Fedor Emelianenko and this Saturday a win over Jake Shields will put him on that path.

Hendo, speaking via MMAFighting.com, said:

“I would love to have that chance to fight Fedor [Emelianenko]. I think that would be the ultimate challenge, and that’s what excites me. I’m sure that’s on people’s mind, but nothing’s going to happen if I don’t keep winning fights, and I have to start by beating Jake.”
