Also good to note is that both Dana White and Dan Henderson were smart enough to do what needed to be done: Dana ponied up a mountain of cash for Hendo and Sokoudjou, and Dan Henderson dropped back down to middleweight where he was needed most. With Hendo-Silva set for March, that gives the UFC 6 months to sober Evan Tanner up or develop another middleweight to the point where it wouldn’t be a joke for them to face the Spider.
Of course, let’s not forget Rich Franklin, who should be due for another Anderson induced rhinoplasty by the end of 2008. All of a sudden the MW title picture that looked so grim a few days ago is starting to shape up! Let’s just cross our fingers and hope Dan doesn’t suddenly get a mysterious knee injury while training.
