Did Tito Ortiz's return lead to Dan Henderon's possible UFC departure?

Quote:
With his vicious knockout of Michael Bisping at UFC 100, Dan Henderson fulfilled the terms of his previous contract, and a new one doesn't seem likely.

After butting heads with UFC president Dana White, who said Henderson's contract demands were "unrealistic," the veteran fighter could sign with a rival organization, most notably Strikeforce.

But when discussing the series of events as an in-studio guest on MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com), White pointed to a potential and surprising culprit for Henderson's decision: Tito Ortiz.

Over the past couple months, Henderson (25-7 MMA, 5-2 UFC), a former top UFC middleweight and light heavyweight contender (who also simultaneously held two PRIDE belts), has remained in a state of limbo. Although White declared earlier this month that he was positive Henderson had signed with Strikeforce, no deal has been announced.

And while White said he and Henderson have discussed a potential new contract with the UFC, the executive said "Hendo" hasn't been serious.

"Dan is in I-don't-want-to-make-a-deal mode," White said on the Nov. 20 edition of MMAjunkie.com Radio. "There are some deals in which you go in and negotiate and make a deal. You know you want to make a deal. ... Dan Henderson knows he does not want to make a deal."

That's when White pointed to Ortiz, who recently ended a 16-month holdout and re-signed with the UFC, as a potential reason for Henderson's alleged stance.

"The [expletive] that Dan came in and said in my office and what he wants, it's unrealistic, and he knows it," White said. "And it's basically based off of, 'I heard this guy is making this, and I heard this guy made (this much).' Basically, what everybody gets pissed off about is Tito. 'Oh, I heard Tito is making all this money, and Tito is this and that.' And it's because Tito likes to go out there and stay stuff like that or somebody in his camp did.

"That's how [expletive] gets started. "

While no deal no seems imminent, and though Strikeforce officials have expressed interest in signing Henderson, White isn't shutting the door on getting a deal done – with Henderson or any other fighter, including Fedor Emelianenko.

"Doors are never closed," he said. "I'm in the fight business. We put on fights. Doors never close.

"Never say never. Dan could call me tonight. Fedor could call on three-way with him. We could sign them both up tonight if they want to call."

To hear the entire download with White, download Friday's edition of MMAjunkie.com Radio.

I think it would be kind of fun to get Hendo in Strikeforce but a fighter like him needs to be in the UFC. Then again a fighter like Fedor also needs to be in the UFC.

Im just sitting on the fence as a Henderson fan I just hope he get's back into action soon.

Tito's shittalking probably has alot to do with other top fighters signing, or staying, in the UFC. I think Tito should be sanctioned for spouting off, and if he decides to talk more shit, ******* cut him. The UFC doesn't need Tito. As far as I'm concerned, I'd much rather see Hendo fight than Tito. Hendo is a dangerous guy and when I watch him fight, I know there is a chance for fireworks. When I watch Tito fight, I know the only chance to see anything resembling action is before and after the fight. Before he starts shit. After he makes excuses. **** Tito, get Hendo back.

I believe Dana one hundred percent on this one. I didnt at first, but after all this time has passed and Hendo still hasnt signed with anyone, its hard to believe that he isnt asking for way to much money.

I'd love to see Hendo return. If he could ever learn to hold somebody down AND punch AT THE SAME TIME he'd be a world champ by now! As it is, he can only do one or the other. Chew gum and walk at the same time, Danny Boy! jk!

Damn straight, Gegard will destroy him and then what? He's in a sub par organization with no where to go... Makes me want to see Mousasi even more in the UFC now actually, think he'd run riot.
