Dan Henderson Thinks People Might Be Forgetting He Beat Vitor Belfort

0

Dan Henderson talks to Sherdog.com about Vitor Belfort getting the next crack at UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, even though he holds a win over Belfort, via unanimous decision, at Pride 32:

“I like Vitor (Belfort). He’s a good guy and he’s been around for a long time, but I just don’t understand why he gets to jump to the front of the line, especially when I beat him. I think it’s something that might have slipped their minds, that [it] happened. I’m not exactly sure. You’ll have to ask them on that, but to me, that’s what it seemed like. I feel like I have stepped up for them a number of times and have done things for them. I never turned Marquardt down. I basically made a statement saying that Marquardt and Anderson Silva are my next two fights regardless and I’ve got to beat them both to either become or stay the champ. I’m O.K. with fighting (Marquardt); we just have to come up with a deal. Basically anywhere’s a possibility, but I’d like to make things work with the UFC. I don’t know what they’re thinking. They haven’t gotten back to me at all since I flew out last week. I’m not trying to pin them over a barrel or anything. I feel like I was just undervalued before, especially toward the end of my contract.”
