i was watching 'ufc tonight' last night and dana mentioned the weidman fight was closer than people think, however he was waiting for something else to happen first. i couldnt think of what considering there aren't many big middleweight fights coming up.
right after that, i watched 'ufc ultimate insider' which had a pretty good retrospective of hendo's career and it hit me! could dana be holding out to see if hendo beats machida to set up probably the biggest middleweight rematch ever? anderson did say he's only interested in big fights and i cant personally think of a bigger one at middleweight.
