    Default Dan "H-Bomb" Henderson is not waiting for Jon Jones, asks to fight in April or May

    mmamania


    Now that Rashad Evans has successfully staked his claim as the number one contender to Jon Jones light heavyweight championship, with their date booked for UFC 145 on April 21 in Atlanta, that leaves former Strikeforce 205-pound champion Dan Henderson in the lurch.

    "Hendo's" plan all along was to wait for the outcome of the Evans vs. Phil Davis bout at UFC on Fox 2 on Jan. 28 to see if "Suga" would emerge victorious and if so, would he have no injuries.

    Check and check.

    Now that that's settled, old "Hollywood" can get back to the business of tossing that "H-Bomb" around. But he needs a target first. And as he explains to ESPN.com, he would like to get busy around April or May and he even wouldn't mind if that target was a heavyweight:


    "I don't know what the plan is, but I'd fight whoever it is they think would be a good match-up. The problem is there's really nobody right now who fits the bill for a title contention fight, that would make sense to fight me. I don't know. Maybe I'd fight at a different weight class. I don't know if they see anybody at heavyweight that would make sense? But I would prefer to fight someone in April or May. ... Who do the fans want me to fight at heavyweight? I'd have to think about that. I don't know who at heavyweight would even make sense. The heavyweights that are in title contention right now wouldn't want to fight me. I don't know who is out there, but I did let the UFC know I'd be open to that as well."

    Hey, he beat the legendary Fedor Emelianenko at heavyweight. Why not try to do the same inside the Octagon?

    The problem, of course, is as he stated. Finding a suitable opponent in a unique situation like this would likely be far more of a headache than it's worth. So what does that leave?

    Well, he goes on to say a rematch against Quinton Jackson would make sense, assuming "Rampage" gets past Ryan Bader at UFC 144 on Feb. 25 in Japan. Then again, fight is just two months before Evans vs. Jones.

    So while Henderson is ready and willing to fight instead of waiting for a title shot later this year, he may end up on the sidelines simply for the fact that there isn't a fight that makes sense for him right now.

    Unless you Maniacs have something in mind.

    Don't see who he fights other than a Shogun rematch or Machida. I say remove Lil Nog from his fight with Gustafsson

    Lil Nog vs Hendo

    book Thiago Silva vs Gustafsson

    let Igor fight Bonnar
