Henderson recently took to his Twitter account to attack the attitude of McGregor leading up to his historical moment at UFC 205.
Conor had a great fight, I'm glad that when I held two belts it didn't effect my head like it has his. https://t.co/HEtaqBVQri— Dan Henderson (@danhendo) November 15, 2016
