It appears that Dan Henderson be trying to regain his UFC light heavyweight title shot on February 2nd. In a live interview on Spike TV's Uncensored Live, Hendo confirmed that he will be facing former champion Lyoto Machida at UFC 156. The bout is probably a number one contender's bout, considering both men have claims for a title shot already.

As a die hard Hendo fan I dont like this matchup for him. Id feel better if it was a 3 round fight and still annoyed Hendo was screwed over

For me I think Hendo needs to finish this fight early. The longer it goes the more I think Machida will top Hendo's cardio and outpoint him.

A close win over Vera doesn't make a number 1 contender. Shogun is far from a title shot. If rampage wins his next fight I think he's got more of a case.

I definitely agree, only reason I always mention Shogun was also screwed over is because he was the guy on that fight card with lyoto who was billed as the number 1 contender shot. So imo that makes him at least a reserve behind Hendo and Lyoto.

Terrible match up for Hendo.

I can see it now......


Hendo will chase Lyoto around for 15 mins desperately trying to land that one big right hand while Machida will be lighting him up with straight shots and kicks to the body and legs.

this card coupled with 155 and the fox card make up for the last few months. Hope the injury bug doesn't effect these cards!
