The fighter formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver has led a life that is fitting for a legally named War Machine. He went 1-1 in the UFC and was released for making unfortunate comments about Evan Tanner, and general difficulty. Then he signed with Bellator and was released for posting really, really unfortunate things about President Obama on his MySpace. He tried a career in porn, which was shut down when he beat up more or less an entire room of people at a party attended by porn professionals. And he recently got out of a year in County for felony assault. He signed wiih Bellator, and was planning on fightng soon, but now he reports on twitter that is going back to lock up for a year.

Dan Henderson wants to wait for title shot, says UFC prez
(mmajunkie.com)
Former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion Dan Henderson has put himself in limbo, according to UFC president Dana White. "Dan Henderson's in a position right now where it looks like he wants to wait for Jon Jones," White said today. Earlier this month, White said Henderson (29-8 MMA, 5-2 UFC) turned down a fight with Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC on FUEL 2. Henderson soon after defended his decision in an interview with Clinch Gear Radio, saying he thought it was undecided whether he or Rashad Evans would get the first crack at champ Jon Jones and that he didn't think a fight with Nogueira was interesting for the fans. Henderson also clarified that he would have taken the fight had it been three rounds instead of the five-round length currently in place for headlining fights. Of course, that was before Evans secured a title shot by beating Phil Davis at this past Saturday's UFC on FOX 2.
