“Bisping does talk a lot,” Henderson told UFC.com. “I guess he was working to get me riled up, it’s almost impossible to get me riled up. I’m easy going and I can roll with it. If you disrespect me, I just kinda take a mental note. And ya know, that will come out his ass later.  I’ve fought plenty of guys that have the background in stand-up and I don’t have a problem striking with anybody. Obviously I don’t want to play into someones strengths and I’m usually better at being more well-rounded than my opponents. There’s something I’m always better at and that’s where I’m gonna try to force the fight to go. If I’m not out-striking him, I’m gonna take the fight somewhere else (smirks). I have a feeling he’s no better on his feet than I am. I’m sure he’s a little bit better at moving his feet and cutting some angles but he definitely doesn’t have more power than I do. I just wanna force him to fight me, cut him off, and make him stay in my face.”

“I’m expecting a tough fight as it is and I know he’s gonna be in shape and ready to go.” Henderson said. “That’s about the only thing that he has going for him is his cardio. I’m gonna focus on that and make sure it’s not a factor in this fight. I think if I don’t even step one foot into the gym and not work on technique or wrestling or anything and did just cardio, I’d still beat him up. I’m a better fighter, I’m more experienced and that’s there. I just wanna make sure my conditioning is there.”

“I don’t care what he says, it doesn’t matter, it’s not gonna change how I fight him,” said Henderson. “I’m still gonna be trying to knock him out, still trying to beat him up and make his lip so fat he can’t talk for a couple days. It’s still gonna be what I’m doing no matter what. So I don’t really care what he says, it doesn’t matter or affect anything.”
