Dan Henderson signs on for six more with UFC

If you thought Dan Henderson was on his way out of the Octagon, think again. According to Henderson’s post on his Facebook page, the first fight of his new deal will be on March 23 at UFC Fight Night 38 against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. Another six fights would most likely put Hendo past age 45, so it’d be surprising to see him lose his first few fights out of the gate and still stay on for an entire slate of six fights.

Nonetheless, Hendo looks to call UFC home for the remainder of his career and make one last run at the belt.

Anderson Silva wants to box Roy Jones Jr. before return to MMA

UFC legend and former middleweight champion Anderson Silva would like to ease back into the Octagon as he recovers from the gruesome leg injury is sustained at UFC 168. That doesn’t mean he’s looking to take an extended amount of time off. Instead, he would like to fight one of his idols, Roy Jones Jr.

Silva said that a boxing match is in his plans, and gave the impression that he’d like to box whether or not his opponent was Jones Jr. Then again, Silva also said he plans to jump into the Hollywood acting scene, so perhaps this is just Silva trying to maintain the buzz he’s created for himself over the years.
