Dan Henderson would take fight with Junior dos Santos at UFC 146 if offered - MMAmania.com
This thing might be getting a little out of hand. |
Thanks to division number one contender Alistair Overeem failing a surprise drug test, his main event fight against Junior dos Santos for the heavyweight championship at UFC 146 on May 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada, is likely off.
And it's led to all out insanity amongst mixed martial arts (MMA) fans. Writers, too.
The obvious choice to replace Overeem is Frank Mir, seeing as he's on a three-fight winning streak and he's held the title once before. Mir vs. Dos Santos isn't a sexy fight, by any means, but it will work in a pinch.
Certain writers on this here website have lobbied for UFC President Dana White to put his differences with Mother Russia aside and sign Fedor Emelianenko for a once in a lifetime fight, though we now know that has no chance of actually happening.
That's not what fans want, though. No, fans are dying to see a certain "Super Samoan" slide right into the void. That's right, ladies and sirs, the one and only Mark Hunt has a rally going for him on Twitter right now appealing to the powers that be within the UFC to give him the vacant spot.
A few of the more defiant fans have even suggested Dan Henderson. Hey, he's not doing anything else at the moment and if Fedor is in consideration, why not "Hendo?" After all, "Dangerous" Dan did knock him out inside of one round in Strikeforce.
Henderson even said on Twitter he would accept the match-up if it was offered.
Again, Mir is the likely choice because he's been in the main event before and he's a former world champion. He's also a true heavyweight. Plus, his management team hasn't pissed off Dana White time and again. Oh, and his record is better than 8-7.
For sure..RT @Jitterbug2Djent: @danhendo Would you take the JDS fight if offered?For sure
He's probably getting the fight, Maniacs.
But who do you really want to see now that Henderson has thrown his name in the ring? Is it him? Hunt? Fedor? Someone else? Sound off in the comments section below with your wildest suggestions.
They couldn't be any crazier than what we're already seeing.
There are many paths to freedom....not all are peaceful.

It would be fun to watch but nothing replaces the JDS/Overeem fight right now in terms of excitement and styles. Mir is probably the one.
Mir vs JDS (you get the angle of JDS getting revenge for Nog)
Fedor vs Cain
This would replace it in my mind.
Here is what I wish would happen. I know the UFC says no co-promoting. This is smart. Why would they ever co-promote? It is not good business, especially when the other company has just one older thing to offer. But what if the UFC made an exception and said you guys get Russia. You can do whatever you want there and only there. They really wouldn't be giving up anything, would they? It just sounds like a win, win. Make it happen Dana.
I would love to see Hendo fight JDS. He probably loses but it would be exciting.
How about Mir fight JDS and Cain fight Hendo. If Hendo wins (snowballs chance in hell) then he gets to pick if he wants hw or lw or mw title fight.
