Dan Henderson trains with rattlesnake for Jones fight


A lot of fighters spend their time looking for the latest cutting-edge technologies and nutritional science in order to get an edge on their opponent.

Dan Henderson is different. A rugged outdoorsman at heart, he has gone back to nature for his camp with Jon Jones.

Yesterday he posted a picture of him catching a rattlesnake.

Clearly the snake is an integral part of his training routine for the UFC 151 fight with light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones  - if you can dodge an angry rattlesnake, a Jones jab should be nothing.

However, UFC officials have confirmed that Henderson won’t be allowed to carry the rake into the cage with him.
