    Hendo will go and smash Mousasi and then come back to the UFC and smash Silva/Belfort. Don't worry it will all work out

    Fuck Dana, I hope Henderson gets back into action real quick, still riding the wave of destroying Bisping right into Strikeforce, for the money he wants.

    Either he was demanding some outrageous figures or Dana and crew just didn't want him bad enough. Hell they already kinda screwed him by setting up Belfort Silva, kinda a slap in the face no?

    I'm sure Dana he knows that Dan won't be able to get the money he's asking for anywhere else for any extended period of time. I'm sure Henderson will be back in the UFC, after 1 or 2 fights in strikeforce, if that.

    It's not like he said that Dan would never fight in the UFC again. He's just making it clear to Dan that he needs to take their offer cuz it's the best he's going to get.

    Hendo is just one of those great fighters that just isnt a big draw. Im sure strikeforce will give a nice payday

    I love it, fuck dana because he wont pay someone exactly what they want. boo fucking hoo. Fact of the matter is hendo is only worth as much as someone is willing to pay for him. Its a business and dana runs it quite well.

    I would like to see him go to strike force, their mw division is their work horse and theres a lot of great fights on there like

    hendo vs cung le
    hendo vs shamrock
    hendo vs radach
    hendo vs lawler
    hendo vs scott smith
    etc

    he would probably win them all but they would be great fights to watch and at the end of the contract he could always come back to the ufc

    I'm sure they'll work something out at some point in time?... UFC fighters come and go and come back again...

    ...I just don't think the UFC has seen the last of him... I'm not too worried about it, although I was looking forward to the rematch between him and Silva.:hs:

    <giggle> I love this pic

    Two one sided, pointless fights.

    People dont seem to realize that besides a distant maybe Gegard and Fedor, there is no one outside the ufc

    Of course Hendo would win but they would be competitive fights. He'd smash shields pretty badly but Diaz would give him a run for his money

    Yeah Hendo will just drop down to 170 to fight Diaz. I'm a Diaz fan, and no he would not. Diaz is a bridge and Hendo is a Croatian.

    Edit: I also don't think this is a money issue like some of you guys are stating. I think it more has to do with the fact that Hendo is close to retirement himself and thought he was going to fight Silva next.

    Shields would get KD'd in the first. Diaz would get raped wherever hendo wants to rape him. Both guys are world class, but Hendo is too big and too good.

    Oh I didn't know that. Just noticed on the stats page that it was a catch weight at 180 and 179 lol. I don't think he'd be very big for that weight class though and Hendo is big for 185.

    I would be curious to know what Henderson was asking.

    Do you think it is because he refused to fight anyone but Anderson?

    Hendo has nothing left in the UFC.

    He would not beat Silva in a rematch.

    He'd lose to Silva 99 times in 100 fights.

    Hendo is destined to get beat up by Mousasi.
