Whenever an inaccurate story hits the Internet, UFC president Dana White blasts the “hack” website for their incompetence. Well, light heavyweight Dan Henderson (Pictured) is now asking White to check his sources regarding the inside information surrounding Hendo’s injured knee.
It has been long rumored Henderson and Lyoto Machida will collide in a top contender contest sometime at the beginning of the new year. However, during Saturday’s post-fight show on FUEL TV, White stated Alexander Gustafsson might slide in there because the MCL the 42-year-old tore in August, which didn’t require surgery, “isn’t better.”
After catching wind of White’s statement, Henderson promptly took to his Twitter to set the record straight.
“Not sure where @danawhite thinks he’s hearing that my knee isn’t doing ok. It’s doing great. Slowly picking training up just like I do for every training camp,” Henderson tweeted. “I guess I’ll hv to show Dana personally how my knee feels.”
Prior to injuring his knee, Henderson was slated to challenge reigning 205-pound king Jon Jones for his crown at UFC 151. At the time, the former Strikeforce champion expected to be fully recovered by late December.
Henderson and Machida are rumored to meet at UFC 157 in February, although no official announcement has been made.
