Photo Gallery: Team Quest and Dan Henderson prepare for war against Fedor Emelianenko
Next weekend, Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Dan “Hendo” Henderson will step inside the Strikeforce cage to face “The Last Emperor” Fedor Emelianenko at the 10,000-capable Sears Centre, in Hoffman Estates (suburb of Chicago), Illinois. Henderson will come fresh off victories over Renato Sobral and the previous Light Heavyweight Champion Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante, with sights on delivering Emelianenko his third consecutive defeat.
If victorious, Dan Henderson will put the future of Fedor’s legendary Mixed Martial Arts career under question, and perhaps even retire arguably the best fighter to ever compete in MMA. Both Fedor and Henderson have 35 professional MMA bouts on their record, although Henderson started his career three years earlier, on June 15th of 1997.
The fight with Fedor will be at Heavyweight, and despite the fact that there’s no official “catchweight” paragraph in the fight contract between the two, there may be a gentlemen’s agreement to stay in the region of 215lbs. One way or another, it looks like the first man to hold two PRIDE titles at two different weight classes, Dan Henderson, is ready for any turn of events against Fedor Emelianenko.
So there you have it. Our photographer Scott Hirano traveled to the sunny Temecula in Southern California to capture the bulked-up Dan Henderson in his final preparations for July 30th. Dan Henderson’s teammates Virgil Zwicker, Tarec Saffedine, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou and Ricardo Feleciano helped “Hendo” to strike, wrestle, and as you can see – sweat, for what is without a doubt one of the most high-profile fights in MMA history.
