(Dan doesn’t usually pick up hitchhikers, but you got such a pretty mouth…)
After months of speculation from the media and a healthy dose of smack talk from Dana White, Dan Henderson has finally signed a multi-fight deal with Strikeforce, reports MMA Fanhouse. There’s no word yet when he’ll make his official debut in the organization, or whether he’ll compete primarily as a middleweight or a light heavyweight, but at least one thing is for certain — that chubby British kid who demanded that DW resign Hendo is going to be pissed.
Now that we know where Henderson is going to compete, it’s time to play matchmaker. Say you’re Strikeforce’s Scott Coker. You’ve just signed one of the best middleweights in the world, so you could toss him in the mix with guys like Jake Shields, Robbie Lawler, "Mayhem" Miller, Cung Le, so on and so forth. Or, you might decide that you’ve got enough talent at 185 pounds, and shuffle him into your light heavyweight class so that Gegard Mousasi finally has someone worthwhile to fight.
There are positives and negatives to either decision, but the pressure’s on. The board members want answers and the Captain is tired of defending your crazy antics to the Comissioner. You’ve gotta make the call and make it soon. So what do you do, hot shot? What do you do!?
