UFC 71: Dan Henderson Will Fight Liddell-Jackson Winner

At the outset of tonight's Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-view broadcast we learned some breaking news: The winner of tonight's main event between Chuck Liddell and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson will take on Dan Henderson.

If Jackson upsets Liddell tonight, Henderson would probably favored to take the UFC light heavyweight title from Jackson, but if Liddell wins, Henderson would be an underdog.

UFC's acquisition of the rival mixed martial arts league Pride was mostly about acquiring the contracts of Pride's fighters, and Henderson is one of the best. No matter who wins tonight's main event, he's sure to have a good fight later this year.
