Dan Henderson training his clinch game for fight with Anderson Silva (video)

Here’s a video of Dan Henderson sparring with Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, Xavier Pokam, Fernand Lopez and others, specifically focusing on clinch defense and getting himself off of the cage. The clinch is where this fight will be won or lost. Anderson Silva has the best plum clinch of any mixed martial artist in the game right now and Dan Henderson has an Olympic-caliber Greco-Roman clinch so that area of the fight will be the most interesting.

Who can impose their will and dominate when the fight gets up close and personal? The fighter that controls the clinch will control where the fight takes place and at what pace it will be fought. Even though Henderson looks dog tired in this video he still looks to be well prepared.
