Dan Henderson was none to happy to learn that not only has he lost his title shot, but that he will need to wait until mid 2013 for a possible title shot, as the title will be tied up in the upcoming season of TUF till April. Hendo took to Twitter to voice his anger to the public and his UFC boss.
I guess I should just quit training to win fights and to be exciting for the fans and just go to shit talking school. @danawhite

The former Pride FC champ does make a good point as Sonnen is earning a light heavyweight title shot, riding off a loss to Anderson Silva in middleweight. That can all be attributed to his gift of gab as Sonnen had swayed the fans in his favor to earn the TUF coaching position and the title shot in one swoop.
UFC president Dana White has said it time and time again – the UFC is a business and they give the fans what they want to buy.
Dan Henderson is expected to be meeting former champ Lyoto Machida next as the news was dropped by White during the UFC 152 post-fight press conference.
