While the bout remains unannounced, several insiders point to it being nearly official and planned for UFC 175 in July.
A hot topic on tonight’s UFC Tonight, on FOX Sports 1, Host Kenny Florian, touched on the subject,
“It’s a tough fight for Hendo. He’s going against a younger version of himself. I think Henderson has the power to get the win here. Rumor has it winner gets a title shot. This is a big deal.”
The broadcast team did note that if true, the winner would still have to wait on Alexander Gustafsson to get his crack first.
