UFC Quick Quote: Dan Henderson likes light heavyweight

Dan Hendo

"[Dan] Henderson ... indicated he could be ready for a return to the Octagon by November. Though UFC officials are said to be encouraging the former Olympian to move down to the promotion's 185-pound division, Henderson indicated he would like to remain at light heavyweight."

-- reports that PRIDE FC Welterweight Champion (183 pounds) Dan Henderson -- who only has one fight left on his contract -- prefers to stay at light heavyweight now that he is a UFC fighter. "Dangerous" Dan returned to the Octagon earlier this month, losing the 205-pound Pride-UFC "unification" bout to Rampage Jackson via unanimous decision at UFC 75: "Champion vs. Champion." He would be a fine addition to perhaps the thinnest division in the stacked organization.
