Dan Henderson has a knack for big performances at contract time: In 2007, he knocked out Wanderlei Silva at Pride 33, becoming a two-division champion and positioning himself to get a lucrative deal when the UFC purchased Pride. Two years ago, he knocked out Michael Bisping at UFC 100, scoring the biggest highlight on the UFC's biggest stage and positioning himself to get a lucrative deal when Strikeforce decided to bid for his services.

And now Henderson is preparing to fight Fedor Emelianenko in the final fight of his Strikeforce contract -- a fight that could position Henderson to negotiate a new deal with Strikeforce's new parent company Zuffa, owners of the UFC. But while a win over Emelianenko could launch Henderson directly into a UFC pay-per-view main event, Henderson says his preference is to stick with Strikeforce.

Henderson is getting KO'd, FEDOR is DONE!!!! Hendo will KO him in the first round. However i am not a big fan of either fighter. Hendo will stay away from the UFC so he can avoid fighting Silva again.

hahahahahah Silva wants no part of Hendo. Dana didn't want Hendo to fight (and beat) Silva, even though the winner of Hendo/Bisping was supposed to get the title shot.

Henderson currently fights at Light Heavyweight. If he came over to the UFC to fight the champion, he'd be fighting Jones, not Silva.

With that being said, I'd love to see a rematch between Rampage and Henderson if Rampage happens to beat Jones.

Fedor has not fought a legit top fighter for the better part of a decade, and beating Fedor at this point is about the same as KOing Chuck.. it means nothing now...



Hendo couldn't was gifted his win over Franklin and now he thinks he can fight a UFC champion... Hendo is smoking the same stuff Chael Sonnen is at this point...
