The Hatchet


Quickly taps out at UFC 251
July 11, 2020
Henry lost to Makwan Amirkhani via submission (Anaconda Choke) at 3:15 of Round at UFC 251 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
Henry felt supremely confident coming into the fight and still barely managed to last three minutes. Henry had a pair of fights cancelled and withdrew from another since the last time we saw him in March 2019. He was submitted by Dan Ige in the first round that night, as well. Henry began his UFC career with a pair of impressive victories before falling on hard times of late. Both Amirkhani and Ige are considerably better than anyone Henry had faced up to that point, and the fact the 31-year-old Scot wasn't the least bit competitive against higher-level competition is extremely concerning for his future.

Facing Amirkhani on 'Fight Island'
June 15, 2020
Henry (12-3-0) is scheduled to face Makwan Amirkhani (15-4-0) in a featherweight matchup July 11 at UFC 251 in Abu Dhabi, Farah Hannoun and Abbey Subhan of USA Today report.
Henry will be back in the Octagon for the first time since March 2019, when he lost to Dan Ige via first-round submission at UFC London. Since then, Henry has had two scheduled fights cancelled; he withdrew from last September's UFC Copenhagen event due to injury and had his matchup with Peter Barrett at UFC Lincoln this April called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to losing to Ige, Henry had won in both of his previous two fights under the UFC banner.
Taking on Peter Barrett in Lincoln
April 5, 2020
Henry (12-3-0) is scheduled to take on Peter Barrett (11-3-0) in a featherweight fight April 25 at UFC Lincoln, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
Henry was forced to withdraw from his previously scheduled fight against Mike Davis as UFC Copenhagen last September due to an unspecified injury, but the 31-year-old Scotsman is apparently healthy again. He'll return to the Octagon for the first time in 13 months, as he had a five-fight winning streak snapped in his last bout in March 2019 at UFC London, when he tapped out in the first round against Dan Ige.
Pulls out of Copenhagen
September 12, 2019
Henry withdrew from his fight against Mike Davis at UFC Copenhagen due to an undisclosed injury, Brett Okamoto of ESPN reports.
The circumstances surrounding Henry's injury are unclear at this point, but it is serious enough to keep him out of the scheduled fight at the end of the month. Giga Chikadze will step in to fight Davis.
Will fight Davis on Sept. 28
September 5, 2019
Henry will fight Mike Davis at UFC Copenhagen on Sept. 28, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
The fight was announced via Davis' social media. Henry will be looking to revenge his latest defeat against Dan Ige via submission in Round 1 at UFC Fight Night in London back on March 16 while his counterpart, Davis, will be coming off a loss to Gilbert Burnes via submission in Round 2 at UFC Fort Lauderdale.
Quickly taps to Dan Ige
March 16, 2019
Henry lost to Dan Ige via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:17 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night in London on Saturday.
Henry mounted virtually zero offense in this fight. He got caught by an early left hook that sent him to the mat, and Ige pounced after that. Henry gave up his back, and with little sweat on the bodies of both men, it didn't appear overly difficult for Ige to sink in the choke from there. Henry had won his first two fights with the promotion, but it's back to the drawing board for the time being.
