Dan Henderson refutes claim he turned down Lyoto Machida match-up

Dan Henderson isn’t one to usually pass on fights, so when Dana White spread news this week the former PRIDE/Strikeforce champion had decided against taking a match with Lyoto Machida it seemed odd.

Now, on his Twitter account, “Hendo” has set the record straight or at least given his side of things.

“Was never offered Machida. And even though he has lost 3 of his last 4, I’m sure it would be entertaining,” Henderson posted.

Machida is coming off a loss to champ Jon Jones with other recent defeats to Quinton Jackson and Mauricio Rua.

Currently, Henderson is awaiting word on who he will face next. The former 41-year old icon was hoping to become the next contender to the UFC light heavyweight title but that opportunity went to Rashad Evans leaving Henderson’s future a bit hazy.
