Reports of Dan Henderson’s Strikeforce Signing May Be Greatly Exaggerated


(Walla Walla-themed fan art courtesy of bojanelezovic.com. We also recommend checking out this breathtaking drawing of Fat Fedor.)

As one of Dana White’s official mouthpieces, you sometimes have to take Kevin Iole‘s articles with a grain of salt. Following the report that Dan Henderson is on the verge of signing a deal with Strikeforce, we’re now wondering: Was the story put out in an attempt to put pressure on Hendo or affect public opinion of him? Because at the moment, Henderson is denying it completely. As Henderson’s friend and business partner Aaron Crecy told MMA Fanhouse, "We had a brief get-to-know-you session with (Strikeforce) and met them for coffee, but to say he’s close to signing would be a gross misrepresentation." And as Dan himself told MMA Weekly, "I’m still hoping to come to terms with the UFC, until I heard this…I’ve never even seen an offer from (Strikeforce).”

So, a ray of hope for Hendo fans who want to see him get his rematch with Anderson Silva at some point, even if he still isn’t close to terms with the UFC when it comes to money. But why would Yahoo! and the UFC puff up a "possibly" story into an "imminently" story? Could they be testing MMA fans to see how much people really want Henderson to stay in the UFC? And will the UFC adjust their offer depending on the results?

Im down as fuck to fight this troll. UFC fan is a worthless loser that guaranteed still lives with his parents and I would be happy to do the world and CP a favor and smash this fag. Set up a time and a place and Im there.

A troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory or abusive messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

That's you you stupid asshole! Go die now, thanks.
UFC fan- October 19, 2009 at 9:49 pm
yep I am really 45.
Nope just cause HAL and his friends are 13 doesn't mean I am.
You think I am "trolling" this website? Do you even have a clue what that really means?
have you seen spam from me? have you seen viruses from me?
Have you seen me type the word COOL like 62 times and post it?
You have no fucking concept of the bullshit you spew forth do you?

I am a grown ass man, uh huh... yep.
You think 45 is to old to back up what I say? Really? you must be 12 yourself. Do me a favor go find some random male age 40 to 50, say your father, and go punch him, and ask if he can back up an asshipping on your bony body.
My body has forgotten more fights than you will ever have the balls to get into...luckily for you, you wont ever find out so feel free to keyboard warrior me all day and night, it makes for great reading.
Oh and that's what this place is all about, posting, just cause you don't like it doesn't make me a troll child, learn to be silent like all children.

Oh and when you can't handle it feel free to cry like a bitch and beg the Ben's to ban me from here, that worked so well for the other 3 or 4 morons who tried that.

^ Your really 45 years old?

So all this time you're not some 13 year old punk who trolls this website? You're a grown ass man who's too old to back all his tough talk?

YOU ARE A FUCKING LOSER!!!

@ UFC fan:

If the Ben's would pay for your flight and maybe a place to stay (motel 6) to meet 831 Son and fight him in a cage/gym/dojo...

Would you do it?

Or maybe HAL(if he exists anymore)?"

getting alot of attention, maybe the Ben's should pay me to write for this damn site.
to answer your question---no.
you want details? ok, NO because:
they wouldn't, it isn't sanctioned and the legal fees for Break Media would not allow it just for a grudge match.

I work for a living, everyday, unlike spit wiper 831 son.

I am 45 years old, 6 and a half foot tall and weight 260, even though I am to old anymore to do this kind of thing, I would most likely crush the little guy to death.

HAL is dead....I hope.

thanks for asking, now back to reality.

ufc fan what do u think of the weak ass card that i will be buying this saturday. i can talk as much shit as i want about the cards the ufc puts on ppv because i have been paying for them for almost ten years now.
i would say 2 out of 5 cards is worth the price. but i will pay to see one fight i dont give a shit.
but come on to put joe daddy v fisher and neer v tibau on the ppv portion and have Bader v schaffer and okami v chot on the undercard is dumb.
ufc wants to talk okami up but know he is not ppv material is strange."

I'm excited about it actually, not all the fights are gonna be great but most of em will.
I agree with you on Okami vs chot, and also on the bader vs Schaffer fight, I would like to see it as well. I hope the live fights go fast enough to get all the fights on PPV.

That fan art makes Hendo look like the Pig People from that old Twilight Zone.

Hendo looks "re-animated". If this guy is making any money, I've really got to get into oil painting.

UFC fan is a great businessman. He is super rich, because only super rich take pride in winning a t-shirt. Donald Trump asks UFC fan for a financial advice.

Hendo is going to get exactly what he is getting now. No more, no less. He is one of my favorite fighters. Fight marquardt, then get another title shot. I think silva is the only MW that can hang with Dan.

oh oh yeah i do believe bispings lifeless body crumpled up in the sky there
Jeff Gazer- October 18, 2009 at 7:41 pm
If anything this should drive his value up. If people can think that dan is not one of the best 205 or 185lb fighters in the world then they should not even log on to make comments. Hendo has been doing this for along time and has proved himself against the best. Everybody can say that he is a little older but that in my mind makes him tougher. He has'nt slowed down and has do nothing but got smarter with age. UfC needs to keep him to still have the best 185lbers, they cannot let the other venues take him or they will be losing money to the venues. More people will pay to watch their shows instead of paying to watch UFC's PPV's.
If the Ufc is trying to see how valuable he is then i'll say it.

DANA KEEP HENDO PLEASE!!!!!!!
Eyes red as Fedor- October 18, 2009 at 6:25 pm
Clearly Dana painted this to really give Hendo the geriatric look and drive his value down.
jkb_junk- October 18, 2009 at 5:42 pm
UFC, I beg you please to pay the man. He is one of the best 185 lbs guys in the world. Additionally he will give a more exciting fight/evenly matched against Silva at 185.
Honestly I think that only Lyoto and Rashad may match up better vs Silva and they are 205.
The 185 division is a bit weak in general and to take out one of the best guys would be devastating.
Additionally if Henderson signs with Strikeforce and fights at 205, then all of a sudden they have a pretty solid 205 division there.
Please keep him Dana.
