I agree with the overall opinions so far. However, I guess Dan is thinking that he only has so many fights left, so I can understand that. But I dont think that is his thought process though. I do think that he feels he is too good for some fights and only wants huge fights. Which is fine but not if your looking to be a champion.

I-ya,
I against I,
flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won't survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time

  1. How can people not like Dan Henderson. The guy brings it every fight, he is exciting to watch, he never talks trash, he has not had an easy fight is god knows how many years.
  2. People wait for title fights all the time. Condit is trying to sit out until GSP comes back.

I think if Dan Henderson wants to wait for the winner of Bones and Evans then he should be able to. Especially after that war he had with Shogun. To me he earned the right to sit out.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

There is a difference between sitting out because of a war and just hoping for a title shot. He doesn't even know he is next. Heck he thought he was getting one before Rashad. He is turning down fights just waiting. His attitude is way too elitist. He doesn't want to fight now because he wants a title shot. He will go down to MW but only for a title shot.

Just go fight Dan...

The guy brings it every fight? Apart from the fights he keeps turning down you mean?

Well, Im sure the UFC has made it obviouse for Dan that he probobly gets the winner of Jones/Evans. Who would be ahead of him? the only fighter that you may possibly argue is Gustafson, but Hendo has beaten better fighters and to me deserves it over him.

So what fight has he turned down? Has he been offered a fight? If he is offered a fight then who would the UFC have him fight?

I remember the UFC holding Cain velazquez out for the winner of Lesnar/Carwin when JDS was available to fight. Did you have a problem with that?

We are so quick to say what fighters should do with their careers. Dan is in his forties and who knows how many fights he has left. If he wants to wait for a title shot at this point in his career then more power to him.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

No. Not at all. I like Cain Velasquez. Quite a lot actually. Therefore, its all good in my book.

Dan Henderson, on the other hand, I don't like, in case that isn't clear. As a result, he sucks.

I am growing real tired of Dan who sense of entitlement knows no rival.

Rashad sat out. Condit is sitting out. More people have sat out.

Hendo is 41 years old. He can do what he wants. He should have had an immediate shot coming into the UFC.

What fight makes sense? Bader is the only fee guy that makes any sort of sense. Machida is coming off a brutal loss. He is like 1-3 in his last few. Phil Davis? What makes sense?

I can see why he wouldn't do a Shogun rematch. Why should he come to teh UFC off of beating Fedor and being the SF champ and have to beat a guy twice to get a title shot?

I'd like to see him fight. But he figures if Rashad can do it, so can he. He has at least earned it more than Rashad.
