UFC 139: "Shogun vs. Henderson" may have flown under the radar, what with the lack of major fight hype just days away from the Nov. 19 pay-per-view event in San Jose, California, but there's still a veritable triple main event on tap for the HP Pavilion this weekend.

The show is headlined by a potential title eliminator, as Mauricio Rua continues to climb back to the light heavyweight championship while Dan Henderson makes his return to the Octagon looking for a 205-pound title bout or even a middleweight shot.

Either will do.

In the co-main event, Wanderlei Silva is basically putting his career on the line for a showdown against exciting Karate kicker and former Strikeforce middleweight kingpin Cung Le.

Oh, and former WEC champion Urijah Faber and Brian Bowles will do battle to determine who gets to rematch Dominick Cruz sometime in 2012. So there's that.
