Henderson continued his passion for the sport, first when attending Cal State Fullerton and then Arizona State University. He went on to succeed in wrestling, particularly in the Greco-Roman style, becoming university champion at the national level in 1991, 1993 and 1994. He also got the chance to represent the United States in the 1992 and 1996 Summer Olympics, although without winning a medal. He also competed for the US in the 1994 and 1997 Wrestling World Championships, and in the 1995 Pan American Games, where he won a bronze medal.

Henderson also participated in Rings: King of Kings in 2000 and effortlessly swept all five of his matches, and so was named the tournament champion. His back-to-back championships made him one of the most sought-after fighters in the MMA world, and also helped in raising his net worth.

In 2000, Henderson joined Pride Fighting Championships and won two title belts, in both the Welterweight division and Middleweight division. After Pride, Henderson also fought in Strikeforce, and became its last Light Heavyweight Champion. Henderson later rejoined UFC, and is today one of its top contenders, taking part in the middleweight and light heavyweight division, even though he is the oldest competitive wrestler.
