Hendo Not Guaranteed Title Shot With Win Over Cormier

“Obviously if Hendo pulls off this upset, it’s huge, huge. He pulls off the upset against Shogun [Rua], he pulls off a huge upset against Cormier, we’ll see… It’s just stupid to talk about now because [Jones] is fighting Gustafsson, and that fight’s not happening until fall, and we still gotta get through that fight, and then we see where he’s at. Who’s to say Cormier and Henderson, whoever wins this fight, doesn’t want to take a fight between now and then? Or if they get hurt, anything can happen.”

“Gustafsson deserves that fight. That fight was razor-thin, it was an amazing fight, he fought another fight, Jones fought, it’s time for that fight.”

Despite all his success in Mixed Martial Arts, Dana White isn’t offering up a title shot for Dan Henderson with a win this weekend.

Henderson faces Cormier in this weekend’s UFC 173 co-main event.
