"As far as Dan Henderson, I'm excited about [him], he's a great fighter," Jones toldESPN. "You know, I've gone through a lot with Rashad as far as all of the trash talking and I really hope Dan's listening and I really hope that Dan keeps it classy throughout this fight. I respect him as an older man, I respect him as a warrior and I just hope he keeps it classy and not drag me through another trash-talking bout. Let's stick to why we're really here, let's just fight."
But then Henderson had the following to say on his youthful counterpart. "He's young and sloppy a little bit," Henderson told ESPN. Which, of course, appeared to compel some responses from Jones via Twitter, such as:
"No clue why Dan Henderson decided to be so disrespectful to me leading up to this fight, but it is what it is. I could use the motivation."
"The dudes done so much for the sport, I'm not even trying to come at him like that. I did enough trash talking with Page&Evans."
"FYI Henderson's mouth isn't bothering me at all, I just figured with all his experience he'd be over stuff like that."
So now that we're past some of the pre-fight stuff, here's what actually occurred when they fought at UFC 151.
