As the world turns, the drama surrounding Dan Henderson and his future in mixed martial arts continues to thicken.
UFC President Dana White recently told MMAJunkie.com, “We’re at a stalemate right now. The money that [Henderson] is asking for would make him by far the highest-paid guy in the UFC.”
Although during UFC contract negotiations it was reported that Henderson had no interest in leaving the promotion, Sports Illustrated recently discovered that Dan is now open to fighting elsewhere.
Henderson is currently in talks with Strikeforce.
Apparently the icing on the cake as far as the recently failed talks with the UFC are concerned was a seven figure signing bonus requested by Henderson according to a recent report on InsideFights.com.
