Default HENDO VS. SHOGUN 139

Great fight!

Quote:
Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion Dan Henderson has opted to return to the UFC ranks following his last Strikeforce win over Fedor Emelianenko. He has likely vacated his title to pursue UFC gold.

Set to spoil his return to the Octagon is former UFC light-heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.

UFC 139 is set to take place on November 19th at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. With the original heavyweight title fight headliner between champ Cain Velasquez and Junior Santos moving from UFC 139 to UFC on FOX 1 the organization is likely looking for a replacement main event. The Henderson vs. Rua fight is a likely replacement for the slot.

Rua just took out Forrest Griffin in the UFC Rio co-main event; it was his first appearance and victory since losing his title to Jon Jones.

Henderson returns off the heels of his heavyweight victory over Fedor Emelianenko under the Strikeforce banner. At 41-years old Henderson was able to capture the Strikeforce crown with a punishing knockout victory over Rafael Feijao this past March at Strikeforce Columbus.

Both fighters will be looking to advance to title contention with a victory.

kind of hard to make a prediction on this one... Depends on which shogun and which henderson shows up.

Dan fought Ninja in PRide, but I don't believe he and Shogun ever fought. I like Dan at LHW.
