Dan Henderson Won't Fight Chael Sonnen, Only Wants Anderson Silva At 185

via cdn2.sbnation.com

I know that title probably doesn't come as much of a surprise to most, but it seems that Dan Henderson has had to clarify his stance on the middleweight division once again after some comments by UFC president Dana White. Dana apparently that believes Henderson is just waiting at home for a title shot, any title shot, and wants to face either the winner of the Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans matchup at UFC 145, or the winner of the UFC 147 middleweight bout between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen (via ESPN UK):

"He'll fight whoever has that belt. Dan doesn't seem too picky, I think he would fight Chael Sonnen [if he won the belt from Silva]."

Dan says that's not really true. At all:

"Chael lives up in Oregon but I know him real well. He was with me and Randy [Couture] when we first started our team," Henderson told ESPN.

"I don't have any real desire to fight at middleweight. The only guy I'd cut weight for is Anderson Silva, win or lose that could still happen.

"But it's not high up on my list at all. Silva's the only guy I'd cut weight for. I've got the light-heavyweight thing in my mind and that's it. I'd fight Anderson Silva but I'm only interested in the UFC light-heavyweight title right now."

Henderson is coming off a slim victory over Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 139 in one of the best fights of all time. Will he meet the winner of Evans vs. Jones? Maybe Anderson. We'll find out sooner or later. And that brings our daily version of "Debunking Dana" to a close. Have a good day.
