Dan Henderson didn't look a bit out of place sitting at a dais adorned with UFC logos, even though he had just been front and center for another promotion's banner event.

"I guess it's a little bit ironic that every time I win a title somewhere, (UFC president) Dana (White) has to buy the company to get me back," Henderson said at a press conference today in San Jose, Calif., the former backyard of said company, Strikeforce, which in March was purchased by UFC parent company Zuffa LLC.

Henderson's saltiness definitely hasn't left since his most recent turn in the octagon.

The matchups are much more action packed at that weight. And everyone at 205 is a big name.

when i met Hendo in Toronto back in April, he said that Anderson is the guy he really wants most to fight in the UFC. i hope this happens, but at 205 where neither fighter really has to cut much weight

I'm gonna say Anderson beats Henderson again...if they fight again. I like his fights at 205 better there's so many more options than if he were a champ at middleweight
