Daniel Cormier vs. Dan Henderson: Fights for Henderson to Take at Middleweight
USA TODAY Sports

Dan Henderson's UFC 173 fight looked exactly like what it really was; a middleweight fighting a heavyweight.

The only problem was that it was being contested at light heavyweight, a weight class where Henderson shouldn't be fighting.

It'd be one thing to be competitive in his fights, but two ugly decision losses to Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans combined with a disastrous night against Vitor Belfort have left some nasty stains on Henderson's recent UFC run.

Even in his win against Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, Henderson was getting thrashed until he landed a Hail Mary punch to drop the Brazilian.

Henderson's gripes about weight cutting are well known, but he has seemingly been more open to a return to the middleweight division. After losses in four of his last five fights (that one win easily could've been a loss), there's no time like the present for "Hendo" to drop back down to the weight division where he should be competing.
