There was a period of time where Sobral was considered to be one of the best 205ers in MMA. When he ran into Henderson, “Babalu” was 12-0 and no doubt the favorite. However, Henderson can never be counted out of a clash, and he was able to overcome the adversity to beat Sobral by Majority Decision. Even more impressive, the triumph came after defeating Gilbert Yvel and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira earlier in the evening!
UFC light heavyweight Dan Henderson is as iconic as competitors come in Mixed Martial Arts. From his facial features to fighting style, “Hendo” is instantly recognizable and holds a place among the all-time greats as a man who has found consistent success for more than 15 years including titles in multiple organizations. In fact, while these countdowns tend to feature a Top 5 format, the 43-year old Henderson’s run in the ring has been so impressive he’s merited an extra five slots.
