Dan Henderson is the current Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion, so it may or may not come as a surprise that Henderson doesn’t have a champions clause in his contract, therefore he is a free agent following his first round knockout of Fedor Emelianenko this past weekend.
Henderson talked about his position following the bout and where exactly he could be going from here post fight:
“I think that could be interesting going forward, a unification fight with the winner of that contest would be a good match,” Dan Henderson told Telegraph Sport from his home tonight.
“I’m the Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion, I’ve beaten Fedor, and I’m unemployed, so we’ll have to see what the talks are now after I’ve had a few weeks off. It’s not a bad position to be in though.”
“I’m not really looking to go back to middleweight (vs. Anderson Silva). I’m happy at light-heavyweight. It’s where I feel most comfortable.”
