Dan Henderson wrestled at Arizona State University, after graduation he competed internationally for the United States in Greco roman wrestling competitions.

Henderson started in the UFC, winning both his bouts at UFC 17 in 1998. Henderson then turned his attention to international MMA organizations, fighting in the Japanese RINGS, and then the PRIDE FC where Dan won the PRIDE Welterweight Championship as well as the Middleweight Championship.

Dan Henderson has fought most of the elite fighters in the world of international MMA, including wins against Wanderlei Silva, Vitor Belfort, Kazuo Misaki, Murilo Bustamante, Yuki Kondo, Kazuhiro Nakamura, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Murilo Rua, Renato Sobral, Gilbert Yvel and Carlos Newton.

Henderson's UFC re-debut was at UFC 75 against Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson for the unification of the PRIDE and UFC Championship belts, where he lost via unanimous decision.

Dan Henderson next fought UFC Middleweight champ Anderson Silva. Henderson was unexpectably choked out by Silva in the second round.

Dan Henderson still must be considered one of the best fighters in the world despite two consecutive losses.
