DC: If I decide to take Jon Jones down 100 times, I will take him down 100 times. This is my Octagon.

Jon Jones just heard that call out and poked himself in the eye.
Ben Askren @Benaskren
I called @dc_mma beating up @JonnyBones in 2009, it’s gonna happen in 2014!
Would be a great tlme for @danhendo to retire.
Henderson says it’s possible that he might go back to competing at 185. “Maybe I shouldn’t have given him that chicken.”
Ariel Helwani @arielhelwani
This is a very pro Hendo crowd. He apologizes to them afterwards. Hendo says he might go to 185. “I’m not done yet. I love this sport.”
The chance to share a cage with one of my true heroes is an experience I will treasure forever.
@danhendo I am ur biggest fan and I’m gonna go right back to cheering u and supporting u. Anything I can do I’m there for you. Thank uDan Henderson and see u soon brother. #legend DC
