UFC president Dana White has publicly stated as much, and Dan Henderson is expecting it. He will square off with the winner of the UFC 145 main event between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans with the belt on the line, regardless of which fighter holds it.

That is of course, unless the winner of that fight gets put on the shelf with an injury… then all bets are off.

“I don’t want to wait much longer, so I’d probably have to fight somebody else,” Henderson told MMAWeekly.com. But he’s waited a while and the winner of the fight is who he wants. Well, the winner of that fight and one other fighter.

Henderson wants the title fight at 205 pounds, but there is still one fighter that could draw him back down to the middleweight division, and is it really a surprise to anyone who that might be?

“I don’t really want to fight 185 unless I’m fighting Anderson Silva,” said Henderson.

He’d still like to rematch Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, but make no bones about it… Dan Henderson is ready to take aim at whoever has the UFC light heavyweight belt wrapped around his waist following UFC 145.
