Obviously i wouldn't mind but i voted don't care. The MW division is stacked atm, there are at least 20 good and entertaining fighters, so there is really no need for the UFC to try and get him back.

Well, yeah, but Werdum was released after being knocked out by newcomer and Hendo was on the winning streak, nonetheless. I definitely want to see him fighting at MW in UFC. Bisping is having so much success, Hendo is not worse. Another reason is that I want to see Hendo vs Silva II at MW. That could've happened.

no i dislike dan because he whinged about his contract not being payed enough and he gave no recognition to shields for beating him and surviving his 1st round onslaught, just not a fan of the guy. also he wouldn't be at the top again.

Nah, Werdum wasn't released 'cause he got KO'd by JDS, he got released because he was demanding more money than the UFC felt he was worth given the entertainment value of his fights and his fanbase. Same with Henderson. Hendo wanted a huge contract, the UFC didn't feel they could justify the fee, so they let him go. I'd say it worked out for them in the end. Werdum ends up beating Fedor taking away a chunk of that hype, and then Hendo goes to SF, gets beat by Shields who then immediately moves over to the UFC.

Hell yeah, I think Hendo's a great fighter. Not sure how he'd stand in the division now but I'd still love to see him at the top.

Bisping can and Henderson can't. I don't see him getting the title, but he can still beat many fighters. Once we forget about the Shields fight, it becomes very glaring that he belongs to the elite even in his age based on the resume. I wonder how much he gets paid in SF comparing to UFC.

What was the point of the first comment about Bisping exactly?

Michael Bisping is one of the best MW in UFC, and probably 1-2 fights away from getting the title shot. Henderson is capable of fighting on the same level, don't you think? My point is that I don't see lots of fighters beating him in UFC middleweight division, especially when the last title contender is busy "laundering money". He won't be back anytime soon. And the next title contender (Belfort) already lost to Henderson, and the following one will be Bisping, I suppose, whom Henderson put to sleep.
