Strikeforces newly signed cage superstar Dan Henderson is reportedly in the end stage of negotiations to face Strikeforce middleweight champion Jake Shields at the next CBS event scheduled for April 2010. However, bout agreements have yet to be officially signed, but the fight is in the process of being finalized.

Henderson (25-7) is coming off of three-straight wins over Rousimar Palhares, Rich Franklin, and the controversial destruction of Michael Bisping, before parting ways with the UFC. Henderson says he is happy over at Strikeforce, and he should definitely bring in more attention to the Strikeforce promotion which is gaining momentum.
