Dan Henderson and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua have verbally agreed to face off at UFC 139 on Nov. 19, MMAWeekly.com has learned.

Independent sources confirmed the fight, which will stand as Henderson’s return to the organization after defeating Russian heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko in Strikeforce.

The bout will likely be the new main event for the card that saw its prior main event between heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and no. 1 contender Junior dos Santos get moved to the main event of the Nov. 12 UFC on Fox fight card.

Henderson’s return will signal the start of his third tenure in the UFC after recently spending some time in Strikeforce, where he won the organization’s light heavyweight crown in March. At 41 years old, Henderson remains a viable competitor at both middleweight and light heavyweight, and will look to hold the same status in his return to the Las Vegas-based organization...

My word! This fight has been years and years in the making. I am gonna be looking for big fanfare here! Hype coming out the wazoo! I want trailer packages chock full of Pride highlights, and then some more current fights for context. Can UFC 139 be titled "Unfinished Business" as well?

Yup. Same here man. I wanted Shogun vs. Hendo before I wanted Fedor vs. Hendo but I'll take them in any order they want to give them to me.
