“Yeah, I was trying to put together Dan Henderson vs. Shogun II and Henderson doesn’t want to do the fight. Henderson wants to wait for the winner of either Jonny “Bones” Jones or Anderson Silva. He wants Anderson Silva, if Silva wins, he will make that cut. Otherwise, he wants to fight the winner of Rashad and Jones.”

It was called one of the best fights in MMA history, Hendo vs. “Shogun” was an amazing fight.

Neither fighter has seen the inside of a cage since their first fight at UFC 139 last November.

According to comments made by Dana White following this week’s UFC 149 press-conference he was trying to make it happen again for the Calgary event.

In typical Dan Henderson fashion, it looks like he opted to take to the sidelines once again and instead of staying active, wait for his title shot.
