Henderson beat Fedor Emelianenko last month to finish off his Strikeforce contract, making him a free agent. The UFC has expressed interest in bringing Henderson back into the mix, and Henderson has expressed interest in returning to the promotion.
But Coker said Tuesday nothing has been figured out yet, and that if Henderson did return to the UFC, vacating his light heavyweight title, he was not yet sure how that belt would be filled – but that the winner of a fight between Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal and Roger Gracie, on Sept. 10, could position himself to be in the picture.
"There are ongoing discussions with Hendo, and it hasn't been determined yet," Coker said during a Strikeforce media call.
"I like to watch the fight and stir the pot after," Coker said. "Let's see who wins and how they win.

When the time is right, we'll let everybody know."
