Jake Shields open to Strikeforce title defense against Dan Henderson
by Dann Stupp on Dec 07, 2009 at 5:35 pm ET
Just hours after Strikeforce announced the signing of former UFC fighter Dan Henderson, one potential opponent said he's open to a matchup.

Henderson, who struck out on a potential second middleweight title shot against UFC champion Anderson Silva before signing a four-fight deal with Strikeforce, apparently won't face similar roadblocks at his new home.

Strikeforce's recently crowned middleweight champion, Jake Shields, stated he considers Henderson "a legend" and would "happily give him a shot at my belt."

Shields posted the comments on his personal Twitter account.

"Hendo (has) always been one of my [favorite] fighters," Shields wrote. "Huge signing for Strikeforce."

Henderson, a former two-belt holder for PRIDE Fighting Championships (until the UFC purchased and disbanded the promotion), bounced between the UFC's middleweight and light heavyweight divisions upon his return in 2007. He fell short in his title shots in both weight classes, and his run toward a second middleweight title fight fell short when negotiations with the UFC fell apart following his July knockout win over Michael Bisping.

Henderson instead signed with Strikeforce and is expected to be part of the organization's CBS cards. Strikeforce recently signed a deal with the U.S. network, and sources close to organization told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that CBS executives heavily pushed for the Henderson signing and plan to feature him prominently on its broadcasts.

Shields, in fact, defeated Jason "Mayhem" Miller for the title in the co-main event of Strikeforce's debut show on CBS.

Strikeforce hasn't set a timetable for Henderon's promotional debut, though both Shields and Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi are considered likely options for the fighter.

Henderson (25-7), a collegiate wrestling standout who represented the U.S. Olympic teams in 1992 and 1996, has won three consecutive fights and has defeated a host of jiu-jitsu fighters in his 13-year career. Shields (24-4-1), meanwhile, has won 13 consecutive fights and hasn't tasted defeat in nearly five years while racking up wins over the likes of Robbie Lawler, Paul Daley, Carlos Condit and Yushin Okami.

Strikeforce currently has Showtime-televised events set for Dec. 19 and Jan. 30, though no date has been set for a probable second CBS event.

This fight worries me for Henderson. He has good wrestling but Shields has incredible BJJ. I think that this is a dangerous fight for Henderson. He went to the ground with a black belt in Anderson Silva and was submitted. Shields could catch him on the ground at any time. I think that Henderson needs to keep this fight standing.

Against Shields;

Standing, Hendo by decapitation.

on the Ground, not clear cut but if Shield's can display his lay n'ghey then he will get it on points.

Would be a very interesting fight though.

Think in a figh with Mousasi, Mousasi would win hands down.

I think Henderson KO's him to be honest. Shields has poor striking skills and Henderson will defend his takedown attempts and own him on the feet.

Hendo takes this via murder. Shields has no chance. First Hendo is an amazing wrestler, so its going to be incredibly difficult to take him down. Second Hendo has bombs in his hands that are just waiting to explode. Sorry shields, Mayhem miller is no Henderson

yep than that will be his first belt of domination than comes lhw. Dan henderson can probably be teh first guy ever to hold 2 belts in pride at one time and two belts in strikeforce . COuld you imagine him holding the mw and lhw belts than they set up a fight with Fedor at hw when he gets the belt. THis could be history. Say Hendo would win by miracle, he could hold mw lhw and hw belts all at onece........holy shit buckets batman, this is mind boggling

I think that if Fedor vs. Henderson were to happen, that it would be at LHW more than likely. Or in between LHW and HW.

I think that this can be good or bad for the UFC. If Hendo wipes out the SF fighters then it will prove that the UFC is better. It could possibly be bad if Hendo loses because then SF would have beaten one of the UFC's top contenders. Just my opinion. Any other thoughts on this?
