UNDISPUTED Jackson outlasts Henderson to unify 205-Pound Belts
Thomas Gerbasi Sometimes history can occur in seconds. Tonight, before a sold-out crowd of 16, 235 at the O2 Arena, it took 25 minutes as Quinton Rampage' Jackson became the first man in mixed martial arts history to unify a major title, decisioning Dan Henderson over five hard-fought rounds to defend his UFC light heavyweight championship and take home Henderson's PRIDE 205-pound belt in the process.

The "Rampage" Way
By Thomas Gerbasi - Quinton Jackson is tired. You can hear it in his voice after one of Juanito Ibarra's no-nonsense training sessions where sweat is required and whining is not tolerated. It's the price you pay when you're at the top of the UFC's light heavyweight division, the man everyone is gunning for, but Jackson's okay with that.

Dan Henderson A Long Trek from Mobile to London
Thomas Gerbasi, UFC - A lot has changed since the last time Dan Henderson stepped foot into the UFC Octagon to fight. Back in 1998, the two-time Olympian was pretty new to the sport of mixed martial arts, having just fought twice in a Brazilian tournament 11 months earlier.

It was in Brazil where Henderson found out that he wasn't in Kansas anymore and that the fight game of the late-90's wasn't anything like what he experienced as a world-renowned wrestler.
