UFC veteran Dan Henderson recently stunned MMA fans with a video of the former Olympic wrestler kicking his daughter’s boyfriend.
UFC legend Dan Henderson was once a renowned name in the world of mixed martial arts. ‘Hendo’ was known for his striking power and has knocked out a lot of his opponents during his 19 years as an active mixed martial artist.
Recently, a video went viral on social media where Dan Henderson proved to fans that he still has his touch. The 51-year-old can be seen kicking someone identified to be his daughter’s boyfriend. The video was uploaded by an MMA page saying the boyfriend asked him to kick him.
“Watch his knee. Dan Henderson leg kicks his daughter’s boyfriend that asked him too! @danhendo @mmapack.” was written in the caption.
He delivered a lowkick that landed right on the boyfriend’s left leg. The kick surely wasn’t using his full force, but the poor guy can be seen limping right before the video ended.
Several MMA fans have since jumped on the comment section to give their thoughts on the viral video. Most of them are impressed by Henderson’s capability in his old age and joked about the boyfriend.
“Wasn’t even full power but Hendo didn’t have to place it right there. He tore his acl I bet, could have kicked him in the thigh or calf lol.” One fan wrote.
“He’s going to be limping a little.” Another wrote.
Some fans are certain enough that the boyfriend suffered some serious injuries. One fan commented that the boyfriend actually tore his ACL.
“If you know the rest of the story! He literally tore his ACL when he did it.” One fan wrote and added, “Ya for real!! Isn’t that crazy.”
