Dan Henderson vs. Anderson Silva almost went down at UFC 105

After Dan Henderson entered the coordinates for his fist to explode in Micheal Bisping’s face, everyone at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center raised their arms up in exhilaration and then synonymously realized they forgot to apply their daily dose of deodorant. The entire arena smelled like a room an elephant would give birth to at the Miami zoo. Believe me, I was there. After his victory, Hendo essentially called out Anderson Silva and everything was going absolutely as planned for a rematch at UFC 105, but the universe urinated on their match-up. Check out what Dave Meltzer said regarding the potential fight:

There was also UFC 105 in Manchester and a third unannounced show.

There were two main events in play for those dates: Anderson Silva vs. Dan Henderson for the middleweight title and B.J. Penn vs. Diego Sanchez for the lightweight title.

When Jackson-Evans was in danger for Dec. 12 in Memphis, Tenn., Penn-Sanchez was moved to that date. Then Silva, who had complained about facing Henderson again (Silva won via choke in March 2008), told company officials he would be undergoing surgery.

Instead we’ll most likely see Nate Marquardt vs. Dan Henderson which I will bet all the money in my left pocket this fight will end in a one-punch KO. Jokes on you, I’m not wearing any pants. Also, props to Tracy Lee for that picture. If I didn’t mention her, she would probably rip out my trachea and use it as a Christmas ornament. [Source]
