Stakes are high for Henderson this Saturday night and not just because he’s battling Vitor Belfort in Brazil. He’s has butted heads with management before in the past, is 43 years old, uses supplemental testosterone, and also happens to be on a two-fight skid (though both losses involved razor thin Split Decisions). Compounding matters, the grizzled veteran’s contract expires after the effort meaning there’s a significant chance he won’t be re-signed if he stumbles. Hopefully “Hendo” will weather the storm and either pick up a win or have endeared himself enough in the hearts of fans to essentially force the UFC to keep him around for another three tilts until it’s finally time for the former PRIDE/Strikeforce champ to call it quits.
Welcome back to the 10-Point Must! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from Bellator 106 to a few new UFC match-ups to the hazy future for Dan Henderson beyond his upcoming bout with Vitor Belfort at UFC Fight Night 32.
