"He doesn't want to fight Machida. He doesn't want to wait. He's going to have to wait. Who does he want to fight? I don't know what to do with Dan. Dan's either going to have to wait for (Jon) Jones or wait for (Anderson) Silva. Or fight somebody else."

-- UFC President Dana White speaks (via on the plight of one of his top light heavyweight/middleweights, Dan Henderson. By the time Aug. 24 rolls around, "Hendo" will be 42-years-old and still awaiting his first fight in 2012. With the clock ticking faster every day, everyone is scrambling to figure out the best course of action. Unfortunately, that's no easy task and while matchmaker Joe Silva is constantly touted as the best in the business, he sure is having a hard time figuring out just what to do with "Dangerous" Dan. Victories by Rashad Evans and Chael Sonnen at UFC on Fox 2 this past Jan. 28 set them up for title fights against Jon Jones and Anderson Silva, respectively, leaving Henderson lying in wait. He turned down a fight against Alexander Gustafsson and unless he'll accept significantly lower opposition, he'll be on the sidelines until at least late summer. Unless, of course, one of you Maniacs has a good idea to pitch to the powers that be. Well?
