August 24, 1970 – Dan Henderson was born in Downey, California and is a MMA (mixed martial arts) fighter and former Olympic wrestler. Currently, he is a fighter for UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) in the middleweight and light heavyweight division. Henderson is known for having a tough chin, who is pretty much impossible to knockout with one strike, and he is also known for his “H-Bomb,” which is his heavy hitting right handed punch. You can see him in action this Saturday when he faces UFC sensation, Jon “Bones” Jones.
August 24, 1973 – Dave Chappelle was born in Washington D.C. and is a comedian, screenwriter, actor and producer. Besides his hilarious roles in big screen films such as “Half Baked,” “The Nutty Professor” and “Blue Streak,” Chappelle was more famously known for his genius, envelope-pushing sketch comedy television series, “Chappelle’s Show.” He was inspired and influenced to breathe comedy through the likes of Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy.
Happy Birthday Dan Henderson and Dave Chappelle!
