It's well-known by now that Dan Henderson is waiting for a shot at a UFC belt. Whether it's at middleweight, light heavyweight, or even heavyweight, Hendo wants to get another chance at that one thing that has eluded him in his storied career. In an interview with Fight Hub TV, Hendo made it pretty clear that he doesn't need a rematch with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, and that he's more interested in the winner of Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans at UFC 145 (transcribed by MMA Mania):

"The 205 belt, the Light Heavyweight belt. I'm not real keen on fighting at 185 but it's still a possibility, I'm not ruling it out. I'm not real worried about it but right now I'd like to fight at 205. I fought [Anderson Silva] and lost awhile back and if it happens, it happens. I'm not in need of a rematch just to redeem myself. I know what I'm capable of and it would be nice to fight him when I'm having a good day and not a bad day but if it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen. Both (Evans and Jones) are tough and have been around for a little while but for me the bigger thing is getting that UFC belt. It's the only thing I haven't gotten. That would be the motivation and it would definitely be a good sense of accomplishment."
