The former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, who made a successful return to the Octagon in his bloody war against Mauricio Rua at UFC 139 earlier this month, has also been pining for a middleweight rematch against Anderson Silva.
One he felt he deserved after stiffening Michael Bisping at UFC 100 all the way back in 2009.
Silva has shipped himself back to Brazil for the next six months to rehab an injured shoulder.
One that would heal "real fast" if the UFC came calling with a title defense against Bisping, who "looked more like a TUF contestant than a TUF coach" in his Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 Finale headliner opposite Jason Miller.
"Looked like one guy hadn't fought in a long time & the other guy cut too much weight. Kinda like the JV team. Not hating. Just not a great night for either guy--weren't there physically so they looked more like TUF cast than coaches. All the 'injuries' that keep Anderson from a rematch w/ me or Chael will heal real fast if they offer Bisping to him."
Henderson and Silva first met at UFC 82 in March 2008, with "The Spider" roaring back after losing the first round to hurt and then submit the Olympic-level Greco Roman wrestler with just seconds left in round two.
It's been more than three years since that showdown, but it still apparently leaves a sour taste in Henderson's mouth, especially since he's had to sit and watch Silva rack up eight more wins and lay claim to the best fighter, perhaps ever, in mixed martial arts.
Anyone taking Henderson's side in this matter? Or does Silva have the right to do whatever he wants, considering he's already submitted both Hendo and Sonnen?
What say you?
