It appears that the UFC is a little more concerned with Dan Henderson’s progress from a knee injury than “Hendo” himself. According to a report out of UFC Tonight Tuesday, officials have yet to confirm a site for Henderson-Lyoto Machida.
Henderson, who injured his knee in August, made it known recently that he was looking at UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar in early February as a target date. However, another report has Alistair Overeem-Antonio Silva locked down for that Super Bowl weekend card to serve as the co-main event, leaving Henderson-Machida likely slated for another date.
The Henderson-Machida showdown could potentially create a No. 1 contender in the light heavyweight division. UFC 205-pound champion Jon Jones is set to face Chael Sonnen in April for the title.
From mid-January until March, the UFC will hold six cards over seven weekends, so there is ample time for the Henderson-Machida match to go down.
