Everyone already knows Dan Henderson isn't afraid to take on guys that are bigger than him. The natural middleweight has been fighting at light heavyweight on and off for years, and even defeated heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko last year in Strikeforce. It's also well-known that he's waiting for a UFC title shot. Most figured it would be at 205 or even 185, but heavyweight? There appears to be an opening for a spot in the UFC 146 main event now that Alistair Overeem has failed a drug test, and Hendo says he'd fill in if asked:

MWhile it's highly unlikely that we'll be seeing Hendo in the octagon with Junior dos Santos on May 26th, stranger things have happened. And he might just be the best matchup for the champ at this point (sorry Super Samoan fans).
