Despite giving up 10 years to his opponent, 44-year-old Dan “Hendo” Henderson found the fountain of youth in his storied career once more Saturday night, knocking out the 13th-ranked middleweight contender Tim Boetsch in just 28 seconds at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.
“I can’t feel bad about that one,” Henderson said. “When I say I’m not done, and nobody believes me, to actually come out and prove that I’m not quite done yet, it feels great.”
The victory was a much needed one for the former Strikeforce and PRIDE champion, who was just 1-5 in his previous six bouts.
Boetsch was offensive-minded as referee John McCarthy waved the two into battle, but after throwing a few hard shots, Henderson’s first firing of his patented right hand buckled the knees of “The Barbarian.”
