Thread: Dan Henderson says he'll face Lyoto Machida at UFC 156

    Dan Henderson says he'll face Lyoto Machida at UFC 156 - Bloody Elbow

    It appears that Dan Henderson be trying to regain his UFC light heavyweight title shot on February 2nd. In a live interview on Spike TV's Uncensored Live, Hendo confirmed that he will be facing former champion Lyoto Machida at UFC 156. The bout is probably a number one contender's bout, considering both men have claims for a title shot already.

    Henderson (29-8) was scheduled to face champion Jon Jones at UFC 151, but was forced to pull out late with a knee injury. Due to the late notice and the champ's decision not to face replacement Chael Sonnen, the card was scrapped. Jones has now been booked as an Ultimate Fighter 17 coach against Sonnen, and the two men will face off on April 27th. Meanwhile, Hendo has been rehabbing his knee and Dana White made it known that Hendo would need to win another fight before he got another title shot. Enter the Dragon.

    Machida (18-3) had apparently earned a title shot with an extremely impressive performance against Ryan Bader at UFC on Fox 4, knocking him out in the second round. But in the UFC 151 fallout, Machida turned down a short-notice title fight against Jones (the guy that choked him unconscious at UFC 140), and was put back into the queue as a result.

    The main event of UFC 156 is a featherweight title fight between Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar. If what Hendo said on Uncensored is true and the two men do meet in Vegas on February 2nd, this would have to be the co-main event.

    I really wish this fight could be a five-rounder.

    This has the potential to be an awesome fight. I think Lyoto wins by Dec.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    I think it's a complete joke that Hendo has to win another fight to get his title shot. Weidman & Hendo should start a lube company because they are both receiving a massive shaft.

    This will be a great fight. I might get tickets for this one. I think Hendo stands a better chance in a three rounder with Lyoto, like Hoss said. Can't count the dragon out.

    I don't think the joke is so much that he has to fight again before a shot. He had to pull out of his title shot due to his injury. That generally puts you behind a couple of people who don't have unknown recovery times, and you can either wait (Hendo is not getting younger), or fight on.

    The joke overall is why Jones is tied up in the first place.

    Man I hope Hendo knocks his piss drinking head off. I'd love to see him get a shot at Jones.
