Thread: UFC's Dan Henderson Takes a Shot at Jon Jones on New Year's Eve

  1. Default UFC's Dan Henderson Takes a Shot at Jon Jones on New Year's Eve

    UFC's Dan Henderson Takes a Shot at Jon Jones on New Year's Eve | Bleacher Report

    Even though their once-planned title fight has long since been buried, UFC light heavyweight contender Dan Henderson couldn't resist taking one final jab at Jon Jones.

    Although many of the other fighters in the UFC had nothing but well wishes for their family, friends, training partners and Twitter followers, Henderson's last Twitter message in 2012 seemed pointedly directed at Jones:

    Dan Henderson

    @danhendo

    Of course, "Hendo" is referring to the infamous car crash that wrecked Jones' New Continental GT Bentley earlier this past May, an incident where Jones was found to be under the influence of alcohol. Jones' accident thankfully didn't involve any fatalities, taking place around 5:00 a.m. in a suburban area of Binghamton, New York.

    As noted by WBNG Action News, Jones struck a telephone pole while driving, with two other women in the vehicle at the time of the crash. Jones later pleaded guilty to a DWI charge (driving while under the influence), and was fined $6,563.62 with a six-month suspension of his driver's license.

    Per the terms of Jones' sentence, he can reapply for a license on Jan. 31, but still must avoid all legal violations for one year after his July 31 sentencing date.

    Henderson and Jones were once set to face off for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship at UFC 151, but the bout was canceled little more than a week prior when Henderson turned up with a knee injury. After Jones rejected late-replacement opponent Chael Sonnen and withdrew from the fight, the event was canceled altogether, drawing the fury of UFC president Dana White.

    Nonetheless, Jones will still face Sonnen at a future date in his fifth title defense now that both men are finished filming the 17th season of The Ultimate Fighter.

    Henderson, on the other hand, will now have to complete a title eliminator match against former UFC champion Lyoto Machida. That fight will serve as the co-main event at UFC 157, with women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey headlining the card in a bout with challenger Liz Carmouche.

    I kind of have the feeling somehow Sonnen will pull out and Hendo will fill in.

    Now this is how you get a title shot nowadays. It is good that Hendo is learning and doing the proper things!

    Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? That tweet did more for Hendo's title shot aspirations than his knockout of Fedor.

    Jon Jones Responds To Dan Henderson: 'Old Guy Got Jokes' - FightLine.com

    UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has had several verbal feuds since his rise to the top of the 205-pound division. The latest involves Dan Henderson, a one-time opponent for Jones who suffered an injury.

    Henderson took New Year's Eve as an opportunity to throw out a little message via Twitter concerning Jones and his previous DWI charge.

    Well, "Bones" responded, and it seems as though the champion isn't too worried with Henderson.

    "lol the old guy got jokes.. that a boy... on to the next one," Jones posted.
    Henderson is currently scheduled to face Lyoto Machida later this year, while Jones will be on the next season of The Ultimate Fighter. He is set to defend his title vs. Chael Sonnen.

    Looks like the "hype train" for Jones vs Hendo is getting started.
