Dan Henderson is refuting a recent report stating he would return to the middleweight division. Henderson is coming off a submission loss to Daniel Cormier earlier this year, a bout he weighed in for at 199 pounds.
“It’s funny how rumors get started,” Henderson posted on Twitter. “If you have read I will be returning to middleweight. Not true, but always a possibility.”
Henderson (30-12) has posted a 7-6 record inside the Octagon over several stints. The 43-year-old seemed poised for a drop down to 185 after weighing in so light for his last contest.
Of note, it was Henderson’s manager that reported the proposed drop back down to middleweight.
