Dan Henderson Told He’s Fighting Lyoto Machida at UFC 156 on Super Bowl Weekend


Dan Henderson at StrikeforceDan Henderson is currently on the mend from a knee injury, but he’ll likely be fighting Lyoto Machida at UFC 156 on Super Bowl weekend… at least, that’s what he’s told.

“I was told that it should be Super Bowl weekend, Feb. 2,” Henderson said on Thursday night’s edition of MMA Uncensored Live on Spike TV.

No formal announcement is yet forthcoming from the UFC, although company president Dana White has been saying for the past month or so that Henderson would probably face Machida next.

Henderson was originally slated to challenge UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones for the belt at UFC 151 in early September, but suffered the knee injury while training. He fell out of the bout and the event subsequently fell apart, leading to the cancellation of UFC 151 altogether.

Henderson returned to training about a week or so ago, so an official announcement about the bout with Machida is likely being held up due to UFC officials waiting to make sure his knee will be good to go.

Featherweight champion Jose Aldo puts his belt on the line against newly minted 145-pounder Frankie Edgar in the UFC 156 main event on Feb. 2 in Las Vegas, while Rashad Evans and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira square off in a feature bout.
