UFC on FOX debut: Anderson Silva vs Dan Henderson possible with 'Spider' win at UFC 134

via cdn1.sbnation.com

The stakes in this Saturday night's (Aug. 27) UFC 134 main event contest in Rio de Janiero, Brazil, may have just gotten a whole lot higher ... at least for one of the two participants.

That's because Anderson Silva, with a victory, may be pegged as the headliner of the UFC on FOX debut special event on Nov. 12 in Anaheim, California. And his opponent, according to reports from Tatame, would be Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Dan Henderson.

The fight, were it to happen, would take place at middleweight and would presumably be for the 185-pound title. In the event that Henderson does not agree to terms with Zuffa on the fight, Chael Sonnen would reportedly be taken out of his fight against Brian Stann and would be granted his rematch against Silva.

Stann would then potentially go on to fight Vitor Belfort.

It should be noted that this is just speculation at this point and plans can change at the drop of a hat. Adding to the intrigue, though, is the fact that Dana White informed the LA Times he would wait until after UFC 134 this weekend to determine his plan for the FOX show.
