Dan Henderson Doesn't Think Anderson Silva Wants To Fight Him Again
“You’d have to ask Anderson Silva [why a rematch wasn’t booked for the inagural UFC on FOX event] . I don’t think it was close at all because I don’t think he wants to fight me. It was something that was talked about and I said, “Sure, no problem, I’ll do that.” I’d cut down to 185 to fight him, but nobody else. He’s [probably the guy I want to rematch most], especially because of the way he fights most of the time. He just seems disrespectful to his opponents and the fans at the same time.”
In a recent interview with his very own “Clinch Gear Radio”, Dan Henderson goes on record and implies that the UFC middleweight champion may have done a minor tuck and run job when approached about re-matching Dan inside the UFC Octagon.
Or, it could be the fact that Anderson Silva has disclosed a shoulder injury that will keep him out of action until next year, making a fight on Fox with Dan Henderson impossible due to his rehabilitation of the injury…
However, if “Hendo” is right, is Anderson’s unwillingness to fight him due to the shoulder or fear of loss?
