If Dan Henderson Signs with the UFC He Wants a Title Shot, Not “Shogun” Rua

Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, Dan Henderson has made it clear he has no interest in fighting former UFC 205 pound title holder, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua if he was to return to the octagon, explaining a fight with the winner of Jones and Rampage sounds a lot better.

Hendo, speaking via MMAInterviews.tv, said:

“I think the biggest fight that the UFC would make money on and the fans would want to see, I would think, would be me against the winner of Jones and Rampage. That would be a fight to unify the titles with Strikeforce and UFC, I think that would be a good move. … I’m not opposed to (fighting Shogun) but I think it wouldn’t be a fight that I would be excited about right now. I think maybe if he’s got one more big win on him. I don’t know, it’s not really my place to say but I think business wise for the UFC, it would be the biggest thing for them, to unify the titles.”
