Dana White: Dan Henderson's Contract is Exclusive to the UFC

via <a href=""></a>

It looks like Dan Henderson's dream of being able to fight in the UFC and defend his Strikeforce light heavyweight title back in that promotion isn't going to happen. UFC president Dana White did an interview with Tom Ngo of after the UFC on Fox press conference today, and he might have offered up the shortest Dana White answer of all time whe he was asked if Hendo will only be fighting in the UFC after he signed a new contract to face Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 139:

Ngo: "Does that mean that Dan Henderson is exclusive with the UFC now?"
Dana: "Yup."

Dana is also asked about Hendo's Strikeforce title, but had no idea what was going to be done with it. Ngo asks a few more interesting questions as well, such as why the national anthem isn't played at UFC events, whether the fact that Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos are able to speak English was a factor in them being chosen for the UFC on Fox 1 main event, and more.
