Dan Henderson | "I don't need to rematch Anderson Silva to redeem myself"

April 18, 2012 6:29 pm by Jamie McAllister

“The 205 belt, the Light Heavyweight belt. I’m not real keen on fighting at 185 but it’s still a possibility, I’m not ruling it out. I’m not real worried about it but right now I’d like to fight at 205. I fought [Anderson Silva] and lost a while back and if it happens, it happens. I’m not in need of a rematch just to redeem myself. I know what I’m capable of and it would be nice to fight him when I’m having a good day and not a bad day but if it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. Both (Evans and Jones) are tough and have been around for a little while but for me the bigger thing is getting that UFC belt. It’s the only thing I haven’t gotten. That would be the motivation and it would definitely be a good sense of accomplishment.”

Dan Henderson comments in a recent interview with Fight Hub TV.

For now Henderson can only wait as Jones is set to face Evans this weekend at UFC 145. Henderson makes it clear that he’s interested in the Light Heavyweight title however does not rule out the possibility of a return to Middleweight.
