Dan Henderson: "I was approached to fight in the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament "

"They had kind of approached me about fighting in that heavyweight tournament just to see how Iíd feel about it. I told them I was open to it. It was interesting. Definitely a huge challenge, and thatís one of the reasons why Iím still in the sport, just to challenge myself.

I think thereís a couple of matchups that would have been interesting for me or fun to do. I donít think I would have won the tournament by any means, but possibly. Of course I said that when I went into that Rings ĎKing of Kingsí tournament. I didnít think I was going to win it, but I was going to do my best. Thereís also something to seeing what some of these fighters are made of on the inside and making them push through two or three fights in a night."

ďI would probably have to put money on either Fedor or Overeem,. Overeem hasnít really been tested lately past the first few minutes of a fight. Heís a monster. Heís a beast these days.Ē

That's interesting!

I think Henderson vs Arlovski, Kharitonov and Rogers wouldn't sound that bad acutally.

But against the others...i don't think he would stand a chance!

Size wise only fair fight would be Fedor.

Craziest fight, certainly Overeem. I would feel scared for Henderson since i know he wouldnt be.

This proves how much Strikeforce is trying to be like PRIDE. They are putting in that lighter weight fighter with more skill against that heavierweight fighter with less skill. Strikeforce has sunk pretty low but this is terrible!
