    Henderson has a 250,000 to show contract at the moment which he obtained after beating Fedor in Strikefarce. Of course there will be renegotiations after his recent losing streak. Hendo will be going the way of Shogun.

    Hendo has a more knowen name now than when he was great, but he never was a great draw compared to his history. Biggest thing that made him was the KO of Bisping with the general veiwers.

    At his age it's doubtful... he's been pretty adamant about not making the weight cut unless there was a title on the line. If he's not motivated to do the cut there it would probably transfer over to his fights.

    Due to his former injuries and his age, I doubt him cutting to 185 is even on his radar.

    The UFC machine will chug along with or without Dan Henderson and I don't think the masses will miss him one bit.

    And surely the UFC doesn't blame him for the weak PPV card that was UFC 161. That card had a few injuries as well to the main event, and the UFC didnt do a proper job of marketing the card overall.
    While I agree in principle with the Mir comparison, I think Mir's preferable relationship with Dana and co. is a lot more complementary than Hendo's and there isn't as much good will with Dan as they have with Mir.

    That's two people. And it's not only Hendo, it's the UFC in general. Look at the ratings and PPV buys the last year or so. The common non hardcore MMA fan, the one who just watches for the big names, doesn't give a shit about the UFC anymore.

    Let's revisit this conversation when the ratings for UFN 32 come out. I have a feeling the ratings are going to be terrible. But if I'm wrong I'm wrong.
