Hendo: Anderson is the only fight I'd consider at 185

Quote:
After the expiration of his Strikeforce deal, current light-heavyweight champion Dan Henderson remains unsigned, but is apparently a wanted man.

In recent days, UFC executives including Lorenzo Fertitta have confirmed that the UFC would be interested in possibly having middleweight champ Anderson Silva fight on its upcoming Nov. 12 event, a show that would mark the promotion's anticipated debut on FOX. Some reports have had him potentially facing Henderson.

At this stage, however, nothing is even close to concrete, including Henderson's future. Henderson's manager Aaron Crecy told MMA Fighting that he currently remains a free agent.

"Nothing is signed," he said.

Crecy said that preliminary talks have just begun a few days ago after Henderson returned from vacation. According to Crecy, since defeating Fedor Emelianenko on July 30, Henderson hasn't spent much time thinking about his next home.

That said, Henderson is open to a possible UFC overture, including one as big as headlining the first-ever UFC network TV card. The prospective fight would still depend on a few things, including Silva winning, coming out healthy, and having a willingness to fight again just over two months later. Along with that, Henderson would have to be signed to a UFC deal, something he would clearly consider.

"He's open to going back," Crecy said. "And to face Anderson, that's probably the only fight he'd consider at 185. If they offered it, I'm sure he'd accept that, but that's my own opinion."

Henderson (28-8) turned 41 on Wednesday. In his Strikeforce tenure, he went 3-1, defeating Emelianenko, Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante and Renato Sobral while losing only to Jake Shields. Altogether, he's won six of his last seven.

Back in March 2008, Henderson and Silva faced off in a UFC champion vs. PRIDE champion matchup. Henderson had his moments in the first round, but Silva emerged victorious with a second-round rear naked choke.

Henderson's place in the annals of MMA history may already be safe, but he still finds motivation in challenges, and Silva would certainly present a challenge.

"At this point of his career, he just wants to have good, big fights," Crecy said.

Hendo will not beat Silva - simple as that... He's tried and failed, he got better since then, sure - But so has Silva. If this fight was to go down I'd say Silva by KO/TKO within the first three, though I know Hendo is not the easiest person out there to put down :P

If he avoids striking he could GnP his way to a decision, but he's not going to win any other way.

Chael has the winning formula.

This fight would do amazing for my Fantasy League team. Both fighters on my team, in a main event title fight.

Also, I'd love to see this rematch, I'd rather see Dan stick at LHW, he's a far better fighter at that weight, but something about this rematch has me dribbling.

Dan is working himself into a position. If he's not willing to fight anyone but Anderson at 185, is he going to be willing to stay at 185 if he wins that fight? I'd say put him in the mix at 205 because he looks better there anyways and see how things go. He's not getting any younger, he'd still give a lot of the 205lb'ers a good fight.

Forget Anderson, i want to see Henderson vs Sonnen. I do remember a post where everyone said Chael would win. But since Hence defeated Fedor i wonder how many are saying sonnen will win?
