With Jon Jones scheduled to coach the next season of TUF opposite of Chael Sonnen, Dan Henderson will step back into the cage after returning from a knee injury that forced him out of a title shot against Jones.

His opponent will be Lyoto Machida in what will likely be a number one contender match up to see who will get the next shot at the UFC Light Heavyweight title.

Both fighters have verbally agreed to the bout that will likely take place at UFC 157. The bout is expected to serve as the co-main event of the evening with UFC President Dana White telling MMAFighting.com on Tuesday that he was working on the main event for the card.
