Dan Henderson: The UFC never offered me a fight against Lyoto Machida   [View Full Version]

What's the deal with Dan Henderson?

Good question. The former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion, who was expected to breathe new life into the shrinking 205-pound division, has been floundering on the sidelines ever since he decisioned Mauricio Rua at UFC 139 back in Nov. 2011.

So, what's the hold up?

There appears to be some confusion between "Hendo" and UFC President Dana White. After Henderson rejected a bout against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, White told fans the former middleweight would wait for a title shot. Then a few weeks later said no, he doesn't want to wait.

White even claims Henderson was offered a bout against Lyoto Machida but turned it down, a claim "Hollywood" refutes, after the jump.

From Henderson's Twitter:

Was never offered machida. And even though he has lost 3 out of his last 4, I'm sure it would be entertaining.

Instead of us talking about who he was offered and turned down, I wanna hear about who he was offered and accepted. This he said/ he said stuff gets old

The UFC doesn't like putting winners against those coming off losses, so why should Hendo fight Machida. Hendo has nothing to gain other then a paycheck. Hendo should either wait for a title shot or fight Rampage if he wins next week.

Only fight right now is machida. It could happen
I still see Davis vs machida. I wish the Ufc would just fold the light heavy strikeforce division. Hendo should just take a middleweight fight. Him vs munoz would be nice

Hendo would demolish Machida.

Hendo vs Bonnar, give him a tune up fight
