MMA H.E.A.T.’s Wade Eck caught up with Dan Henderson, 10 days before his rematch with Lyoto Machida. Dan talks about his 2013 UFC 157 split decision loss to Lyoto and how it’s important he controls Lyoto’s movement in this fight. He also talks about this being his last fight on his UFC contract, his desire to continue fighting, his frustration with refs stopping his fights early rather than giving him the benefit of the doubt (which he feels he’s earned), how his training regimen has changed over the years, why he’s happy Nate Diaz beat Conor McGregor, his new Roots Of Fight t-shirt and TUF 23’s Ashley Yoder.
** BREAKING NEWS 4/13/2016: “The UFC organization was made aware today by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, that Lyoto Machida declared the usage of a banned substance during an out-of-competition sample collection last week. Machida stated that he was unaware that the substance was prohibited both in and out of competition and, in accordance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, his disclosure of usage will be taken into consideration by USADA during any potential results management and adjudication process.
Given this information, UFC officials have elected to remove Machida from his scheduled bout against Dan Henderson this Saturday in Tampa, Fla. Henderson will be re-booked for a new bout in the near future.”
