Dan Henderson: Bubble boy

Combat Lifestyle photographer Tracy Lee spent a day up at Big Bear photographing Dan Henderson’s training camp. And while most of the pictures are atypical of what you’d see from most other photographers, Tracy always seems willing to go the extra mile and get into the fighter’s bedrooms for the good stuff. Ahem. In this case that means getting to see Dan Henderson pulling a Michael Jackson and sleeping inside a bubble:

Dan went upstairs to take a nap. I went up and caught some photos of him in his high altitude tent on his bed; reminiscent of the movie, The Boy in the Plastic Bubble. Scientific studies have shown that altitude training can produce increases in speed, strength, endurance, and recovery. Does that mean that sleeping in a high altitude tent, in a high altitude environment increases this effect exponentially? I took the time to explore the house a little and found 5 beds in each downstairs room, a pool table, fire place, and guitars for guitar hero.

Unfortunately there’s no Guitar Hero pics involved, but overall it’s worth checking out Tracy’s blog of the whole event and seeing what an average day in Dan Henderson’s training camp is like. Will it be enough to keep the remainder of his real teeth from being knocked into the back of his throat by Anderson Silva? Uuuuuuuuh. Hmmm. Guess we’ll see.

    The tent decreases the air pressure and O2 levels even more? I don’t get it. Isn’t that just being redundant?

  • Omomatta

    BJ Penn does the same thing.

    “…Will it be enough to keep the remainder of his real teeth from being knocked into the back of his throat…”

    I like the Spida a lot, but he hasn’t fought anyone really worth a shit yet and he is in for a rude awakening. Lets take a look back…..Leben (no comment needed), Lutter (Non-wieght making fat-fuck, guy looked like he was ready to be sacrificed, not fight), Franklin x2 (He Rich’s Kyrpotonite, Rich had no chance), and Marquardt (He lost before he stepped in the ring, little bitch)

    When you look at it, all the guys he beat were a bunch of pussy ass gueros; Henderson is gonnal scalp Silva!

  • Captain

    I’m pretty sure Anderson has beat some non-gueros in his career. Even so, I guess if he beats Dan you can blame that on Dan being a guero also, or at least part guero.

  • Accomando

    Exactly correct Cap, henderson is only part guero. I should note that just because someone is a guero doesn’t mean their a pussy, just the gueros that Silva has fought, they were pussy ass gueros.

    I’m just kidding anyway Capt.

  • higgz

    Franklin and Marquardt acted afraid of him. I genuinely don’t think Henderson is.

    The thing with Greco wrestlers is that when they clinch they pull you off balance in many different directions–that’s how you set up your throw. It will be interesting to see if Silva can knee him in the face before Dan tries to toss him. Great style match up.

    Most competitive title match of the year. I’m super hyped to see it!

  • fightfan

    I cant wait for this one. I really think that Silva is the shit and Dan will get KTFO. I hope I am wrong. I would like to see Anderson dethroned.

    Then Silva can face a couple fighters that he is sure to KTFO

    You guys are hyping me up big time :)

    Looks like the bed is open from the other side.

    This just in, Henderson sleeps in oxygen tent which he believes gives him sexual powers
