What's next for Dan Henderson? Dana White struggles to answerPosted on February 17, 2012, 11:19 AM by Anton Gurevich
Speaking at the UFC 145 pre-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White related to the situation around Dan Henderson's next fight inside the Octagon. White admitted he still "has no idea what to do" with the crafty veteran, also revealing that the Team Quest leader rejected the opportunity to fight with Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida:
"He doesn't want to fight Machida," White said following last night's UFC on FUEL event. "He doesn't want to wait. He's going to have to wait. Who does he want to fight? I don't know what to do with Dan. Dan's either going to have to wait for Jones or wait for Silva. Or fight somebody else."
Dan Henderson is currently on the most impressive streak of his MMA career, with victories over Renato Sobral, Feijao Cavalcante, Fedor Emelianenko, and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.
At the age of 41, and with 15 years of MMA experience behind his back, it looks like Henderson understand he has one final title run left in him. Hendo has already previously declined the offer to fight Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
Hendrson himself declared via Twitter he was never offered a fight with Lyoto Machida, claiming that the former UFC Light Heavyweight champ is still an "entertaining" fight, despite the fact that he lost 3 of his last 4 fights.
