Hendo Refutes White’s Claim | Has No Desire To Fight Chael Sonnen

March 19, 2012 8:46 am by Pedro Carrasco

“Chael lives up in Oregon but I know him real well. He was with me and Randy [Couture] when we first started our team. I don’t have any real desire to fight at middleweight. The only guy I’d cut weight for is Anderson Silva, win or lose that could still happen. But it’s not high up on my list at all. Silva’s the only guy I’d cut weight for. I’ve got the light-heavyweight thing in my mind and that’s it. I’d fight Anderson Silva but I’m only interested in the UFC light-heavyweight title right now.”

Ask UFC president Dana White who Dan Henderson is fighting next and he will tell you that Dan will fight anyone who holds eight the middleweight or light-heavyweight title and that includes Chael Sonnen.

This caught many off guard as Hendo and Sonnen are long-time teammates under the same “Team Quest” banner.

In this interview with ESPN, Dan Henderson denies White’s claim and said there is only one person on his list of potential middleweight opponents and that is Anderson Silva.
