“Dan chose to sign with Strikeforce after careful consideration," Crecy told Sherdog.com via e-mail on Monday. "He approached the process with an open mind, and over the course of the past couple months became increasingly impressed with the Strikeforce organization. It was not a decision that Dan took lightly." Henderson could debut for Strikeforce as early as April on a tentatively planned CBS event, Sherdog.com has learned, and might face the promotion’s middleweight champion, Jake Shields, right out of the gate. Henderson, who also fights at light heavyweight, is being eyed for matchups against Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi and the world’s No. 1 heavyweight, Fedor Emelianenko, said a source with knowledge of the deal.

I'd love to see Hendo take on Shields and see if Shields is still as cocky then!

i was really hoping he'd resign with the UFC and beat Anderson to cement his legacy as the greatest MMA fighter of all time next to Fedor. unfortunately both sides couldn't come to terms and Henderson signed with Strikeforce. there are some good match-ups for Henderson with Shields and Jacare and the article mentions a potential fight with Fedor. sucks he's not in the UFC but i wish Dan the best of luck.

Hendo is the perfect match up for me when it comes to Shields. He'd absolutely destroy him. Look for Jake to do whatever he can to avoid that fight. Im sad he left the UFC, but he'd never beat Anderson so I guess if he wants a MW crown Strikeforce was the right option.

Should we expect an F-bomp riddled rant from Dana?
