Default Hendo guaranteed next shot

..against whoever he wants!



Quote:
Dan Henderson has won a UFC tournament, was a Pride champ in multiple weight classes, won the Strikeforce LHW title, moved up in weight to 207 to take on Fedor then knocked him out, put on one of the greatest fights of all time against Shogun and blessed the world with the omnipresent Bisping KO.

If the dude isn't the GOAT he's on the very, very short list.

Dana White understands this, and even though he and Hendo haven't been the best of friends over the years, Dana respects the hell out of what Hendo has been able to do throughout his storied career. That's why Hendo is chillin, waiting for a shot at the UFC middleweight title or the light heavyweight title. Whichever comes first.
Quote:
"Yes, Dan Henderson will get the winner of that fight (Jones vs. Evans) or the winner of the Anderson Silva fight. Dan Henderson just wants a title shot. You know, there was a lot of talk about the stuff I said. Here is the thing. I offered Dan Henderson two fights. Dan Henderson wants this fight. Normally I don't do that. Guys don't sit around and wait and pick their fights. There's been very specific cases where that has happened and it's guys who have earned it or deserved it. Dan Henderson is one of those guys. Listen, Henderson has been around forever. He is forty-something years old. He has been knocking guys out left and right and if he wants to sit around and wait for this title shot, he can do it."

If Fabricio gets the shot I swear I will not watch this!! Hell I rather have Hunt get the fight... not even I think the Skyscraper deserves it more than Hunt.

No way Hendo goes to HW. He's got a title shot lined up for him in two different weight classes. Why take a fight at HW when yo uhave a shot waiting in two other weight clesses. Wouldn't make sense for him to do that.

He's said he's willing to take the fight if they offer it to him.

He has already been waiting almost 1/2 a year already....why not fight in May? You never know what could happen in either fight, the winners could get injured. Why not be active and take the shot if it is there?

He would fight Dos Santos for the Heavyweight Championship!
