Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer reported on the newsletter’s website that a rumored main event between Dan Henderson vs. Tito Ortiz at UFC 78 is not happening and that the UFC is still aiming for a bout between Ortiz vs. Rashad Evans on the card:

Regarding rumors going around of a Tito Ortiz vs. Dan Henderson fight on 11/17 in Newark, NJ, there is nothing to it. It was something discussed, but not all that seriously. Right now the expected main event for the show is Ortiz vs. Rashad Evans, but Ortiz is playing hardball when it comes to signing.
