Dan Henderson targets January UFC return as a middleweight


Dan Henderson is headed south for the winter, according to UFC Tonight.

The longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran is "probably" going to drop down from the light heavyweight division to 185 pounds, after getting rag-dolled by Daniel Cormier at the UFC 173 event last May. While trying to cut to middleweight at age 44 is a tall task, "Hendo" hasn't been able to make much noise over the past few years and is just 1-4 in his last five.

Simply put, he's got the "H-Bomb" ... and not much else.

Naturally, that could all change if he's able to get himself back into a division more suited for his size. Henderson (30-12) has a long list of victories over some of the biggest names in the sport, including Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva, and fought Anderson Silva for the 185-pound strap back in 2008.

But if and when he does come back as a middleweight ... who do you want to see him fight?
