Dan Henderson is nearly set for his first fight since an injury forced him out of a title fight with UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

Henderson (29-8 MMA, 6-2 UFC) will meet fellow contender Lyoto Machida (18-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) at UFC 156 on Super Bowl weekend, he told Spike TV's "MMA Uncensored Live" on Thursday.

UFC officials, though, haven't made a formal announcement.

UFC 156 takes place Feb. 2 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas with a featherweight title fight between champion Jose Aldo and former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar. The main card, including the likely Henderson vs. Machida fight, airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

Who knows? BLAF might try to force a fight between Jones and GSP for TUF: US vs. Canada. I wouldn't put anything past Zuffa at this point.

It's a cool matchup, but it would better if they did Hendo/Jones first. Hendo is the only top contender that Jones hasn't already beaten. If he loses to Machida, that fight may never happen.

Horrible fight for Hendo. Machida eats these sorts of matchups for breakfast.

Hendo is my all-time favorite fighter, and I am scared to death for this one, horrible match-up for Hendo

And I really wanted to see Jones /Hendo, i doubt if Hendo loses it will ever happen

Tough matchup for Hendo, but I think he lands the big one at some point in the fight. Going to avenge Couture's loss.

"I can tell you what I know. I was told that it should be Super Bowl weekend, February 2nd. But, who knows? Until it's a done deal -- I've been told things before that didn't necessarily come true."

 

 

not exactly a confirmation, in my opinion. hope it is true.
