Henderson Says He Wants Liddell & Anderson Silva

After his win over Silva, Henderson revealed he had battled most of the fight with a broken right hand, which he said he thought he suffered in the first round. Once he is healed, Henderson has big plans for the rest of the year, including bouts against Ultimate Fighting Championship stalwarts such as Anderson Silva and Chuck Liddell.

Those bouts might not happen if UFC and Pride Fighting, rivals MMA companies, can't find common ground.

“I hope they do come together,” Henderson said.

Any sort of agreement between the MMA competitors might lead to megafights across the world, and Henderson probably would be a centerpiece of any card. Fans already are salivating over the possibility of watching someone such as Henderson meet the best in his two weight classes.

“He’s a superstar now,” said Garcia.
