White said Wednesday, "I guarantee you 1,000 percent that Dan Henderson is signed by Strikeforce."

Really....I think it's a relief, there isn't much there for him in either the MW or LHW IMO. I think his time would be spent getting a title and then holding it with relative ease, in the UFC there is just a deeper pool of talented fighters for him in either class he chooses to fight in. I don't think I can imagine more than 4 fights I would want to see him in SF, that would only keep him busy for about a year. I don't think he is ageing poorly and should probably have about 3-5 years of good fights left in him.

Your post has confused me. You're relieved that he is probably in strikeforce yet you don't think there's much there for him? I get that you think he'll be back in the UFC (i think thats the point of the 3-5 years thing) but why would you want him to waste time in strikeforce. I'm not trying to be an a**. I really just don't understand.

Didn't Dana once guarantee he would sign Fedor?

Read the title only and misread it....my bust! I want him to stay in the UFC!

Mousasi vs. Hendo!!!!!!!!

This is kinda cool, BUT Mousasi is the only interesting match-up for him here...maybe Fedor at HW but its highly unlikely.

I dont know if he can handle Gegard though, but I think we shall see soon enough> Im pretty sure Gegard will beat up Soko, and Hendo will want to avenge his teammates loss. Anyways this is interesting but I bet he resigns with the UFC somehwhere down the road.

I'd prefer to see him in the UFC, but if this is true then more power to Dan. He has the right to market his product wherever he wants. I'm just glad to know how professional about this he has been the whole way through. He will wreck Strikeforce and solidify himself even further as a GOAT.

I find it funny the way Bloody Elbow presents this story and they say it like it's Dana behind this trying to start a bidding war with StrikeForce. I don't think that's what he is doing at all and I think its more along the lines of Dan's mangers giving false info in hopes of trying to start a bidding war that the Dana wants no part of.

seems like dana doesn't want hendo period
they should let him walk and sign one of strikeforces top guys like a robbie lawler to get back at them

uh oh. Hendersin wa ******* good. Im so ******* gone, But Silva was better in both devisions he was debating between. So, I guess he was better off taking on Hendo before than Silva or Machida or Rua. Doesnt make much sense but i would make sense if I was sober, Sober from now on. Sorry
