UFC 82: Anderson Silva vs. Dan Henderson
Dana White announced at the post UFC 78 press conference, that UFC middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva will face “Dangerous” Dan Henderson at UFC 82 in March.
Henderson is coming off a unanimous decision loss to UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 75 in September.
While Henderson expressed no interest in dropping to middleweight, the UFC has called on him to fill the gap of a dwindling middleweight division picked apart by Anderson Silva.
UFC 82 is set for March 1st at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
