The source of this report is TAGG radio and they seem to be wrong a lot so take this with a grain of salt.

If it's true Tito is going to get absolutely mauled. There's no way he'll be able to handle Henderson's intensity.

I had picked Rashad and was looking forward to it but as long as Tito gets smashed I don't care who he fights. I am glad Hendo is back so soon.

They should have Evans vs Jardine 2 as well. IMO

This does make me happy. Not because this fight isn't happening, but because Frank Trigg got tooled again. NME is a more credible source then Trigg and if he says its not happening then it isn't. You can take it to the bank.

I look forward to this fight even though Hendo's wrestling is going to be a real problem for Tito. However I will say this... if Jackson can out-roll Hendo, so can Tito.

In fairness to Frank, Georgeous George did say this was only a rumor. So...it's not like he said Dan Henderson signed for $2 million per fight or anything.

i saw the first tito rashad fight different. i thought tito won 1st 2 rounds but grabbed the cage and rashad won 3rd. so i think rashad was happy to not get a loss on his record and should understand he is fortunate that tito grabbed the cage. now after seeing the cro cop fight i think they took a point away too soon from tito. cro cop got bagged 4 times and that was only a warning. oh well i expect to see tito rashad not tito hendo

I think the point might have been taken a little early in the Tito Rashad fight, but Crocop took in in the bag only twice and Big John only saw the second one. John knew it happened the first time, but he can't warn Kongo for something he didn't see. In an interview Crocop gave after the fight he said it was twice, so unless he forgot that he got kneed in the groin more then twice I think it is safe to say it was twice. Thats not something you miscount.
