What's next for Hendo?
 
After Rashad's victory last night, it looks like Jones/Evans is finally gonna happen so that means Hendo needs a fight, so who do you think it will be?

I think Thiago Silva will end up fighting Shogun and that will be a bounce back for Shogun, an easy win over an overrated fighter.

Machida is possible but Hendo is a pretty favorable match up for the Dragon and they'd probably lose a fight for Jones and Machida is quite a way away from the title picture. Too much to lose imo so I don't think they'll do that.

Does he get the winner of Rampage/Bader or Davis? Personally I'd like to see Lyoto get that rematch with Rampage and redeem himself for his awful performance that night but Hendo still doesn't have a worthy opponent, Davis isn't ready for elite competition and Gustaffson and Lil' Nog are fighting.

If they want to feed him a W they could try and do Hendo-Tito, I doubt Tito would be very keen though.

I'd say keep him open since Rashad has an unparalleled ability for not being available to fight. Let Hendo take the title shot if Rashad gets hurt. If that fight goes as planned, then let Hendo face the winner. Theres hardly any challengers at 205

I would love to see that one however Tito is already fighting rich and win or lose that wouldn't earn a fight with hendo.

Tito fighting Rich? Is it official? First time I hear about this.

I personally would like to see Henderson fight Forrest. I'm a big Forrest Griffin fan so it pains me a little to say that... but it's a big enough fight to push at least as a co main event, if not the main event.

Forrest is all but checked out, and as much as I love the guy, he either needs to officially retire or step up his game. Hendo will force one of those outcomes most definitively! I really have a hard time seeing Henderson losing as well, so they most likely won't lose a contender... and if Forrest should pull it off, then they can push their golden boy one last time.

LHW is quite thin at the m oment, the best fighters have lost recently or even worse already lost to JBJ, as already said they will look to give Hendo a free win over a decent name who shouldn't pose a threat.

Not official but because of the buzz I think it is inebitable.
