RUMOR: Dan Henderson still hurt, Machida vs. Gustafsson in the works.
 
Article isn't in English so here's a translation.

Kimura heard from various sources on the ground in Seattle that Dana White announced that Henderson did not have time to recover from his injury until February 23, as the match against Machida was supposed to take place, and that you will let Alexander Gustafsson take Henderson's place. According to one source, it was likely that the UFC will contact Alex and team management later this week to see if Alex is interested in the game.

When Kimura spoke with Alex on Saturday evening (U.S. time) told Alex that he did not have any major damage to the body but was just sore in some places, and that he had to sew a few stitches in the eyebrow. He had not heard anything about a possible request to take on Machida in February.

Dan is saying on twitter his knee is good but it doesn't really matter, Machida would beat both of them, he landed on Jones he can land on Gus and Hendo's too slow for the Dragon.

...Sounds good. Very good. I love how the divisions blow up at any moment with changing of the guard fights and title defenses. Joe Silva must be drooling over the possible future match-ups. Last night's event opened a ton of doors in multiple divisions and was one of the best events of the year. Lyoto vs. Gus would be pretty interesting. The match-ups in the near future are going to be even more mindblowing. Benson was on point last night. Great performance. I really hope he faces Pettis again. That would be a sick war. MacDonald vs. Condit 2 would be a crazy war. The divisions are filling up with complete "new breed" fighters which are blowing minds and taking over...

Gustafsson has a good chin, but he fights real sloppy. I don't know if it's because I just got done watching Rory pick apart BJ with crisp and accurate striking. But Gus just looked real sloppy when fighting top level guys.

I would be really surprised if Machida didn't put a beating on Gus.

I think Machida is a bad matchup for Gus. I did not say Gus would or could not win though.

If Machida hits Gus he can do that Rush blitz that he does. Gus does not have the wrestling of Jones so Machida can really close in on him. Machida has the footwork needed.

Mike Goldberg effect. He kept going on and on with the changing of the guard stuff last night and it's not the 1st reference i've seen tonight on the board. :thumb02:

Makes sense.

Gus has a chin from hell is what I learned after last night. Shogun hit him with some huge over hand rights and Gustaf didn't even take a step back.

I thought it was said the winner of this fight got a title shot?

I thought we all knew that Dana only says that to generate interest before the fights.
