Henderson: Silva Don't Want To Fight Me, Won't Fight Marquardt

0

Josh Gross talks to Dan Henderson regarding the UFC's middleweight division:

“I think I'm the one guy that poses enough dangers [to Silva] style-wise,” Henderson said. “If I were his manager, I'd be trying not to have him fight me as well. I know that Anderson Silva is really trying not to fight me. It's obvious.”

Henderson said if the UFC came to him with a bout against Marquardt, he would turn it down and seek challenges at light heavyweight.

“I think Marquart's right in line for a title shot as well, but I feel I've earned that already,” Henderson said. “That's a fight that more than likely will happen in the future, but I think right now, from the UFC's standpoint, they shouldn't be having me and Nate fight each other. They're going to get stuck without any new opponents for Anderson Silva. Silva is the only fight that interests me at 185.”
