Benson Henderson Discusses His Upcoming Fight With Rustam Khabilov
Posted by Larry Csonka on 05.26.2014



- Benson Henderson recently spoke about his upcoming fight with Rustam Khabilov. Here are the highlights…

On Fighting Rustam Khabilov: "Rustam's very tough man. We all know those Russians, they're very tough, you know they're known as a people as being tough, the stereotype so to speak. But he proves it inside the octagon as well. It's not just a stereotype for him, but it's fact. He's a tough kid. (He's been) working on his wrestling. His wrestling, his Sambo is his background (and) he's really good at it. So he's been at (Greg) Jackson's now for a while working on improving his overall game of course. His Boxing, his kickboxing, his overall game, working on everything, and he's getting better. He's shown improvement in every fight, so me knowing that, me knowing that Jackon's camp, Greg Jackon and how good that camp is, how good all those fighters are, I know he'll be a better fighter. This'll be the best Rustam Khabilov that the UFC has ever seen. So I'm preparing for my best and my best performance so that I can go five rounds, hard, and go out there and show up and show out."

On The Sambo vs. Jiu Jitsu Debate: "For me, the whole Sambo versus Wrestling, versus Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, versus Judo, versus Taekwondo, versus Kung Fu, versus you know, anything, even any traditional form of martial arts, normally the better form is the individual who's better at it. It doesn't matter, you could be a white belt, beginner Sambo guy and go against a Blackbelt Jiu Jitsu guy, (and) probably the Sambo guy is gonna lose. And if you reverse it and have a beginner white belt or blue belt Jiu Jitsu guy going against a Sambo world champion, probably the Sambo guy is gonna win. Same thing for Kung Fu and Muay Thai or American style Boxing, like it depends on, so many people try to over generalize 'Oh kung Fu is better, Oh Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is better, Oh American wrestling is the best.' There is no BEST. It's the individual. Because we over generalize, we lose sight of the individual. It's the individual who makes what he does so good."
