UFC NEWS | Machida Eyeing Fight With Dan Henderson Or Chael Sonnen


“I would be really honored to face [Dan Henderson].At 41 years old and competing at such a high level, he’s an example for our sport. The fight he had with ‘Shogun’ was unbelievable. I think we could have a great fight… Actually, I never had an interest in facing [Sonnen], but he did so much trash talking that I started to have an interest because I’m not the kind of person who likes to say a lot of bad stuff about my opponents. I’d rather fight and see what happens. I think that fight could happen, but that will depend on whether or not he fights Anderson [Silva].”

In a recent interview with sherdog.com, former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Lyoto Machida discusses his desire to face either Chael Sonnen or Dan Henderson.

However, the likelihood of one of these matchups coming to fruition has yet to be determined. Henderson may be the next to face Jon Jones if Rashad is not successful this weekend against Phil Davis. Sonnen is next in line to face Anderson Silva is he can get past Bisping.

What’s next for “The Dragon”? Who knows at this point but a match up with either Team Quest fighter is one the fans would surely tune in for.
