MMA SUPERSTAR AND FORMER OLYMPIC WRESTLER DAN HENDERSON SIGNS WITH STRIKEFORCE!
Four-time mixed martial arts (MMA) world champion and two-time United States Olympic wrestler Dan Henderson will enter a new chapter in his legendary career after signing a multi-fight agreement with world championship MMA promotion Strikeforce.
Henderson, the only fighter in history to simultaneously hold two titles in two different weight classes – the welterweight (183 pounds) and light heavyweight (205 pounds) crowns – with a major MMA promotion – PRIDE Fighting Championships – will enter the Strikeforce cage after earning "Knockout of the Night" honors with his stunning second round (3:20) KO of Michael "The Count" Bisping at UFC 100 in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 11, 2009.
"I’m very happy to be a part of STRIKEFORCE and their partnership with CBS and SHOWTIME®," said the 39-year-old Henderson, who represented The United States in Greco-Roman wrestling in both the 1992 and 1996 Summer Olympics.
