There has been quite a bit of confusion over the last few weeks regarding the status of Dan Henderson and when exactly his next fight will be but Dana White put an end of the rumors this week while speaking with Heavy MMA's Fight Day
Henderson had been clear that he was looking for a title shot against either Jon Jones or Anderson Silva and that will be exactly what he gets according to the head honcho:
"Yes, Dan Henderson will get the winner of that fight (Jones vs. Evans) or the winner of the Anderson Silva fight. Dan Henderson just wants a title shot. You know, there was a lot of talk about the stuff I said. Here is the thing. I offered Dan Henderson two fights. Dan Henderson wants this fight.
Normally I don't do that. Guys don't sit around and wait and pick their fights. There's been very specific cases where that has happened and it's guys who have earned it or deserved it. Dan Henderson is one of those guys. Listen, Henderson has been around forever. He is forty-something years old. He has been knocking guys out left and right and if he wants to sit around and wait for this title shot, he can do it."
