Even though Henderson earned a victory at Bellator 227, it doesn’t mean that the fighter is happy with his performance.
“Unsatisfactory,” Henderson said after the event (via Farah Hannoun & Simon Head of MMA Junkie). “This is one of the best crowds I’ve ever fought in front of. You Irish fans are nuts. You guys are crazy. I love you guys. I wanted to come out here, and I wanted to have the Irish fans go crazy. I wanted them to go nuts. Give them a good show and entertain you guys, and I came out with a dud. I came out with the W, but it was a little bit of a dud.”
Henderson has competed a total of eight times under the Bellator MMA banner and six of those encounters went the distance.
The fighter wanted to make the bout versus Jury a wild affair, but it didn’t work out that way in the end.
“I wanted to make it a wild affair,” Henderson said. “Action-packed, nuts, those kind of fights I do the best. I shine the most when it’s 100 miles an hour, and that fight was 80 miles an hour. I think Myles did a great job of dictating the pace of the fight and making it a slow, close fight.”
More than half of the bouts at the Bellator 227/Bellator Dublin joint card went the distance and four of the five bouts on the Bellator 227 portion of that card went to the judges scorecards.
