"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."

That might be the best thing Dana has ever said about Hendo. They've had some rocky times in the past, mainly because Dan didn't kiss ass and has said what he thought. There was also that little issue with the winner of Bisping/Hendo supposed to have been given the title shot until the Brit got knocked out into the next millennium and then that suddenly was no longer the deal.

Cool of Dana to tell the truth and admit Hendo has earned this. The ironic thing for Dan is he is a better fighter at LHW and hates cutting to MW, but has a better chance at the MW belt due to Jones's utter dominance. IMO, If Evans can pull off the upset, then Dan has a great shot at the LHW belt.

RedVexx - Dan has a better shot at beating Shad than Bones and Shad has a better chance at beating Bones than Hendo IMO.


 sorry, but this isn't reality. rashad has better striking and wrestling and cardio. he is also inside jones' head and has previous training experience. hopefully Dan gets a good paycheck out of this.

He loses every potential matchup (except vs. Chael maybe), so who cares? Hendo has a great legacy in the sport, which I respect, but his days of being relevant will be over after the next one. Phone Post

Silva is a better fight for Hendo....if he can still make the cut. I think he should just concentrate of Silva and start the cutting process now so it will at least be semi tolerable for him.

I know it might be counter intuitive since he is doing so well at light heavyweight but i personally think age will play a bigger factor in the Jones Hendo fight. With Silva he can at least count upon potentially getting a take-down from the clinch. With Jones i am not that sure.

It would be sweet to see Dan get the middleweight crown.I am not that sure he has a big chance but i be certainly rooting for him.

As for the comments for the ultimate fighter....they should have stuck to the people choose the fights format....Its a gimmick but it would at least get some kind of interest boost (personally think the dynamics between Cruz and Faber are entertaining as fuck).

 While I completely agree that Dan has earned the right to choose when he fights, and against whom, the irony of this message board is epic when it comes to this.

UG on Henderson- What a Legend. He has every right to decline fights and pick and choose his opponents. He is the MAN!!!!

UG on Anderson- Coward! Ducker! HE CANNOT PICK HIS OPPONENTS!!!! Grrrrrr


The biggest irony is that Anderson has NEVER refused a fight he has been offered by Zuffa (as far as anyone can prove). He and Ed have always said that Anderson will defend his belt against who ever Zuffa tells them to. He just gives opinions on who he feels deserves it. 

Is it racism? Is it just ignorance and hate? Is it patriotism?

LMAO at wanting to fight possibly the 2 top pound for pound guys in the sport being cowardly. Anderson not wanting to fight friends and guys who are rightful #1 contenders is questionable. There is nothing questionable about a guy who only wants to fight the best

When Anderson says he refuses to fight anyone other than GSP or Jones than I don't think there will be ANYONE calling him a coward

 Are you seriously this retarded, or just trolling?

When did I say or even imply that Dan is being cowardly? DERPA
I am pointing out the irony of posters here (like yourself). In no way am I speaking to Henderson being cowardly. In fact, I even praise Hendo in the beginning of the post.

I think you are seriously dense, but this might be a troll...

No matter what, as Dana said (and many others here have said, Dan has earned it..Like him or not, Dan has done more than enough to deserve this shot.

It says a lot about Dan in that, people may complain that he constantly gets title shots but in order to earn a shot, must mean your beating a lot of top level opponents.

And not only beating these guys but KO'ing 3/4 of them...

This. I like Hendo but his next fight he will lose. To Anderson or bones. It doesn't matter. I don't even know why the Henderson fans want an Anderson rematch when he go pwnd so bad the first time. Phone Post
