THE G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Times)
Wade Henderson has fought all over the world and competed on MMA promotions in Africa, Asia and Australia. He has faced top level opposition such as UFC welterweight contender Brian Ebersole and is an extremely active fighter.
He has a Brown Belt in BJJ and has also won stadium titles in Muay Thai & Pro Boxing. In general The G.O.A.T is a very well rounded fighter who has a happy habit of finishing fights in the very first round.
Here are the thoughts of veteran MMA journalist James Goyder,
“These two have almost 50 MMA fights on their combined records which should make for an intriguing contest between two MMA veterans.
Ribeiro is a produce of the famed Gracie Barra academy in Brazil and will have the advantage on the floor but Henderson is a BJJ Brown belt so he will be no pushover there either.
Henderson has been living and training in Thailand and might feel that his best chance of success is to keep the fight on the feet. Whatever happens both fighters will know they are in for a tough fight and this looks to be a very even match up indeed. ” he said.
