Now a free agent, Dan Henderson eyes Jon Jones vs. "Rampage" Jackson winnerPosted on August 2, 2011, 03:06 PM by Joey Santosus
“I think that could be interesting going forward, a unification fight with the winner of (Jon Jones vs. 'Rampage' Jackson) would be a good match... I’m the Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion, I’ve beaten Fedor, and I’m unemployed, so we’ll have to see what the talks are now after I’ve had a few weeks off. It’s not a bad position to be in though. - For more from Dan Henderson, visit The Telegraph
Much like the man he defeated last weekend in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, Dan Henderson is faced with a level of uncertainty regarding his fighting future. Unlike Fedor Emelianenko, however, Henderson is currently riding a three-fight winning streak, including third-round TKO victory over Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante to capture the Light Heavyweight strap back in March.
With his Strikeforce contract now expired, "Hendo" appears to have his sights set on a possible title-unification bout with the winner of the Jon Jones vs. 'Rampage' Jackson clash set for UFC 135. Before jumping ship, Henderson was 3-2 in his latest stint with the UFC and left the promotion following a highlight reel knockout win over Michael Bisping. So what's the word LowKick'ers? Does Hendo belong back inside the octagon? And if so, is an immediate title shot deserved?
