"I will fight anybody that Dana White puts inside the cage against me. I want to fight every UFC 55 pounder on the roster, I want to beat all of them. I want to be that dilemma child for Joe Silva and for Sean Shelby. I want them to be like, 'Oh man, who are we going to give to Henderson next?'," Henderson said.
Henderson's next matchup is a rematch with Frankie Edgar. Edgar saw two intimidate rematches, to BJ Penn and Gray Maynard, during his run as champion and felt deserving of one himself after a closely contested fight with Henderson at UFC 144. UFC president, Dana White, has answered Edgar's sediments and the two are set to scrap later this year.
Should Henderson stave off Edgar once again, there are plenty of matchups for him in the future. Perhaps none more obvious is a rematch with Anthony Pettis. Pettis is the last man to defeat Henderson, two years ago at WEC 53 via unanimous decision.
"Do I want to face Pettis again? Absolutely, we will see each other again, before I retire, before I die I'm going to see Anthony Pettis again...It's his job to work his way up to me, but we will see each other again...Is he worth of shot for beating number 10, Joe Lauzon, and then and split decision over unranked Jeremy Stephens, or is he deserving because he beat me last?" Henderson said.
Moreover, Henderson says match making is not his job and will simply fight whoever the UFC feels worthy of a title shot. Looking ahead, a future opponent for Henderson is likely to be determined by the pivotal matchup between Nate Diaz and Jim Miller slated for UFC on Fox 3.
"I don't want anyone saying I'm afraid to fight this guy or that guy," Henderson said.
