Although former PRIDE Middleweight/Light Heavyweight Champion and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion/former UFC Interim Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones never met in an MMA fight, but they will be meeting in a grappling match at Submission Underground 2 and Henderson is vowing to take a part of Jones home with him.
“Now, onto Jon Jones who I will be facing at Submission Underground 2 next month. I saw some interview he did where he said that he’d put high level wrestlers on their ass and planned to do the same to me. Sit down, kid. You’re letting your mouth write checks you can’t possibly make good on. I’ll be taking one of your arms home with me. I’ve got a few favorite submission moves, but I’m pretty partial to armbars and leglocks. Vitor did a pretty good job with an armbar on Jonny four or five years back. I plan on going the extra mile to get the job done,” said Henderson to Champions.co.
Henderson recently retired from MMA competition after suffering a controversial submission defeat to UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping at UFC 204, Jones is currently serving a one year suspension for a failed drug test administered by USADA.
Submission Underground 2 takes place on Sunday, December 11 from the Roseland Theater in Portland, Oregon with Jon Jones and Dan Henderson headlining.
