Former UFC Champion Wants to Hang up the Gloves

On the eve of Bellator debut, Ben Henderson is said to have”strong civic duty”with the United States.

About to debut in Bellator, and already vying for the welterweight title of the event promoted by Scott Coker, the former UFC champion Ben Henderson may be too close to close your professional career in MMA and the most surprising is the reason. In an interview, Bakshi has ensured that thinks about retiring until the end of next year and join the army of the United States.

“The real reason (to stop),to be honest with you, is that I’ll end up joining the military ranks. I always carried with me a strong sense of civic duty. We, as Americans, we have to have a better time of service. I said I’d stop to 33 years, but didn’t say how many months. I may be 33 years and eleven months, for example, “said Henderson, who turns 33 years old in November, to podcast”The MMA Hour.

“The kids say all the time,’ Oh, I was going to join the Marines, I was going to join the army, or this and that. Everyone with 22-year-old says. It’s something I always feel. When you’re older, with some 50 years, I want to be able to say to my kids, I want to tell my grandchildren that they have a civic duty with your country. To serve, to give back a little. What have you done for your country except eat and use electricity? What have you done for your country? This was something that I felt very intense and I found out that there are other ways to do and that’s what I’m doing, but I can’t as long as I have a career in MMA “,guaranteed.

Ben Henderson will do the main fight of Bellator 153, next Friday (22),in front of Andrey Koreshkov, in valid title of combat welterweight category (up to 77 kg).The American, former WEC and UFC have a cartel of 23 Professional WINS and five defeats.
