Dan Henderson Still A Free Agent, Exploring Options Outside UFC Including Strikeforce


From Henderson’s business partner and manager Aaron Crecy:

“Contracts are confidential, so that statement’s impossible to prove or disprove…However, we have done our due diligence. We certainly don’t believe that to be the case. Dan (Henderson) understands and we have a certain belief on where he stands in the hierarchy. Certainly there are champions and former UFC champions that deserve to be paid more than Dan. Right now (Dan’s) just trying to gather information, and that’s his right to do as someone who has no obligation to any particular organization…After negotiating exclusively with the UFC for the last few months, he’s exploring what options there are…The only reason we spoke with Strikeforce, if I’m not mistaken, was because Dana suggested we do so, at a time when he said the UFC wasn’t prepared to pay Dan what he’s asking, and that’s fine…Our position has never been to argue in the media…We understand where the economy is. The last thing Dan wants to do is complain about money to fans. Ultimately, Dan does have a good relationship with and a great deal of respect for (UFC owners) Dana, Lorenzo (Fertitta), and Frank (Fertitta). He has nothing negative to say about them. Nothing’s done until a contract’s signed. Period.”
