Dan Henderson Asks Dana White To Replace Chris Weidman At UFC 174

After his technical knockout of Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC Fight Night 38, Dan Henderson said he wants to replace injured UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman at UFC 174 and fight Lyoto Machida.

He even wrote UFC President Dana White on Twitter, asking for the match-up.

If it’s up to Henderson, however, the fight won’t get pushed back, and he’ll step in to fight Machida a second time, all in an effort to avenge his 2013 loss to the karate stylist. Henderson and Machida first faced off at UFC 157. The two fought as the co-main event for that evening’s pay-per-view, battling to a split-decision win in favor of Machida.
