Desription .........  Dan Henderson, a former U.S. Olympiad in the 1992 and 1996 Summer Games, began training in mixed martial arts in 1997 as a member of the Real American Wrestling team. Legend has it that he began wrestling early on during his childhood in Apple Valley, CA. Shortly thereafter, Henderson won the Brazil open, then went on to score decision victories at UFC 17 over Brazilian Allen Goes and Canadian Carlos Newton, winning the middleweight tournament. With his dominating ring presence and mixed-blood good looks (Henderson shares English, French, and Native American ancestry), Henderson’s nickname “Hollywood” is more than appropriate.

Henderson twice won medals in California State Wrestling Championships as a high school student in Victorville, CA, studying under his father Bill Henderson, and others. Later, he trained with Bob Anderson of the now-defunct California Jets. Henderson gained further recognition wrestling for Cal State Fullerton University and Arizona State University and in the 1993 NCAA Championships before moving on the U.S. Olympics. Since entering the MMA fighting arena, Henderson has gained honors and glory in the UFC, RINGS, and PRIDE franchises, besting a variety of opponents with his masterful grappling techniques and striking abilities. Henderson’s RINGS victories include those over MMA luminaries like Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria and Gilbert Yvel.

In PRIDE, Henderson went on to achieve a string of victories over luminaries like Renzo Gracie, Wanderlei Silva, Yuki Kondo, Nogueria, and others, suffering a few losses along the way as well. In September of 2007 Henderson returned to the UFC, suffering losses at the hands of Quinton Jackson and Anderson Silva. MMA Worldwide Magazine named Henderson as the #2 Light Heavyweight (Issue 9, June 2008.) Henderson currently trains with Team Quest alongside Matt Lindland and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, and in 2007 acquired the Clinch Gear apparel brand of clothes, which supplies clothes for a variety of U.S. Teams.
