If he would have been a good boxer he would be a boxer. He's in MMA because his boxing wasnt good enough. Must have been flawed. In terms of mma he is a good boxer.

I doubt it.

Henderson is a tough bastard though he's great to watch and a class act too, very humble.

MMA is for people who suck @ boxing. the land of glass jawed rejects that can't throw a proper punch so they wrestle.

MMA is not for peopl who suck at boxing, it's for people with a different and often broader background than boxers which are specialists more akin to taekwondo. I'm reasonably sure if a pro boxer insert any name (James Toney comes to mind) entered MMa they wouldn't be very succesful either. I guess than you could argue that boxing is for guys who had limited skill sets who couldn't grapple, sprawl, clinch, knee, takedown, elbow, kick effectively.

Jr Dos Santos would dominate the HW division as of current.

Henderson is the son of a wrestling coach and grew up wrestling, competed in wrestling even going so far as the Olympics. I think DH punches harder than many boxers and has a good mind for fighting, he could have done very well in boxing had he grown up on canvas instead of on a wrestling mat.

Hendersons background is in Greco Roman wrestling, he didn't take up boxing training until he started MMA. He does have 2 fantastic attributes which would have stood him in very good stead if he had began boxing at an early age and that is a freakishly powerful right hand and one of the best chins I've ever seen.
