Cavalcante will have a chance to shine at UFC Fight Night 32 similarly to his efforts in Strikeforce where he held gold. Of course, “Feijao” lost the belt when he battled Henderson who caught him midway through their match-up and laid claim to the gold. However, Henderson never actually defended the belt, moving on to the UFC after a follow-up fight at heavyweight.
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.
