Henderson will wait for title fight at lightheavyweight or middleweight

by Ken Pishna | source: mmaweekly.com

Preliminary CardHaving long fought at the highest levels in both the light heavyweight and middleweight classes – and even stepping up to heavyweight on occasion – Henderson isn’t overly picky. He’ll take the shot at whoever holds the light heavyweight belt or the middleweight strap, at least according to UFC president Dana White.

“He wants a title fight. He either wants Anderson Silva or whoever has the belt at 185 or the winner of Evans and Jones,” White said at the recent UFC on Fox 3 press conference in New York City. “Last time I talked to Henderson, he wanted to wait to fight one of these guys for the title.”

“He’ll fight whoever has that belt,” said White, musing on situation. “Dan doesn’t seem too picky, I think he would fight Chael Sonnen (if he won the belt from Silva).”

No trying, i think you're just a little muddy on your memory or history.

You got to think that since he is waiting for the title shot (which he should, and he deserves) retirement is right around the corner. I think once he gets that title shot, and if he wins he's done...put the exclamation point on the finest MMA career ever..That is his last goal.. he's won everything else...

V. Overreem, and Illoukhine. In Rings! Randly got beat by Enson in a Vale Tudo, or Shooto event. Chuck beat Allistar Overreem, Guy Mezger, and lost Rampage Jackson. Nakao was a favorite, but hometown cooking, and it was Pat Militech. Yves Edwards. Unoffical champion of the UFC? Nice try.

 If Rashad beats Jones,  Hendo is a bad matchup for Rashads chin.

But to get this thread back on track, i think Hendo loses both to Jones and Andy. He could beat Rashad though. Still cant believe Shogun fought him the way he did. I always thought a Dan/Chael fight to determine the shot at Anderson would be a huge set up.

Also, not 100% sure if Randy was actually UFC champ all 3 times he was tapped in Japan. He was for sure when he got tapped to Enson. Not sure about the other 2 times, i believe he got tapped those 2 other times then came back to fight Randleman and win the HW title again.
