As for an opponent, the report only stated TBA, meaning no one has been signed yet to the dotted line.
The card takes place in July and features UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman defending his belt against Lyoto Machida. Henderson actually volunteered to face Machida after recently defeating Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
Henderson (30-11) snapped a career-worse three-fight losing skid when he knocked out Rua in the third round earlier this month. He had went 0-3 in 2013, including split decision losses to former champs Rashad Evans and Machida.
