Tito Ortiz a possible reason for Henderson's UFC departure

Placed in UFC section because it pertains more to the UFC even though Hendo is in SF.

Did Tito Ortiz's return lead to Dan Henderson's possible UFC departure?
by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Nov 25, 2009 at 6:30 pm ET
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."
I wonder if this really was a reason.

Ya from what I have read he is making about around the same amount as he was in the UFC maybe a bit less but it is being made up for in exposure on CBS. Hendo say's he cares more about the exposure and respect as a fighter not so much about the money.

Oh and he also said he has no idea how much Tito is making. That is what Dan is saying anyways who knows the truth.

Why don't they just release how much the new contract pays him right away? We're all going to find out after he fights his first match anyway.

if Tito is making so much money he should get a good doctor who won't let him risk further injury by OKing a fight with a cracked skull

Tito has proven to sell PPVs in the past, that is worth more to a promotion than a fighter who has more skill but doesnt sell PPVs

Back when he fought Liddell for a second time I guess.
