I will keep TOFers updated on Henry’s upcoming fights.
Henry wants to fight Patricio “ The Pitbull” Freire for the title next. He fought him once already, his 2nd fight with Bellator. He took the fight on 12 days notice. Which in hindsight was a mistake but you couldn’t tell Henry that ! His attitude is and was “ I’ll fight anyone, anytime”.
The Pitbull submissioned Henry, but before that Henry was taking it to him. I am convinced Pitbull wanted no part of a stand up fight. Henry is known to hit like a hammer. Henry’s ground game is way better than when he started with Bellator; thanks to the move to Benson Henderson’s MMA Lab in Phoenix.
Last year Henry was ranked number 4 and wanted to fight Freire in Rome for the Title. The champs camp wanted nothing to do with it. They stated that they had nothing to gain, but had everything to lose. Now I don’t think they are going to be able to avoid it !!
I hope that Henry wins; but win or lose he is a champ in our eyes !! His dedication and and hardwork is inspiring !!
Henry has had a rough road in life; his father died when he was just a little boy. Years later his mother married a man who wanted no part of Henry, treated him like a bastard step child.
Henry made a lot of bad choices as a teen; if not for a man who lived across the street who became his father figure Henry would probably be dead or in prison.
Pro fighting is one hell of a way to make a living; but it has taken Henry all over the world. He has earned his GED, learned the love reading, this kid devours one book after another.
Most importantly he has learned that he isn’t as stupid as his POS step father made him out to be. He also has learned what family means and the love of others !!
Please join me in praying for Henry’s safety when he fights, but more important Gods leading in in his life. I tell him over and over that no fame and fortune is more important to us than him having a relationship with our Lord and Savior!!!
Thanks for supporting Henry !!!!
