In recent statements made to Bubba from Bubba The Love Sponge Show, Dan “Hollywood” Henderson hinted that he could possibly be fighting as early as December. He didn’t name his possible opponent, but hinted that a weight drop would be needed for the fight.
This news comes as a surprise as Henderson continued to show interest in fighting as light heavyweight. Dan Henderson held the PRIDE FC light heavyweight and middleweight titles up until PRIDE FC was sold to Zuffa earlier this year.
If this fight happens, Henderson will be a much needed boost to the UFC middleweight division.
UFC 79 is scheduled for December 29 in Las Vegas Nevada.
