After months of shopping the field Dan “Hendo” Henderson has signed with Strikeforce.
“I’m just hoping to get out there and fight again and get paid what I would like the get paid. I’m not asking to be the top-paid guy at out there at all …. It’s a little step up from my last pay check, but a lot less than a lot of other guys are getting paid,” [Fanhouse]
When asked about a potential match up between himself and the Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, Gegard Mousasi.
“He’s a very tough opponent. Those are the type of guys I like to fight and the guys that it’s going to be a big challenge for me,”
No official date or opponent for his debut with Strikeforce is known, but he has expressed interest in returning around Superbowl at the January 30th event.
Hendos versatility to fight at 185lbs. or 205lbs. should be a great addition to Strikeforce’s middleweight and light heavyweight divisions.
Strikeforce make it official, with Press Release.
