Dan Henderson has been granted a license to fight in Nevada, which makes it almost a certainty he will face Michael Bisping at UFC 100 in Las Vegas (TUF 9 filming ends in June). Henderson/Bisping will fit perfectly on the card because it's assumed there will be two five round title bouts. The UFC needs some high quality non-title fights to round out the card because of time constraints. Having millions of eyes watching Henderson/Bisping will also help market the follow-up fight between the winner and the Middleweight Champion, which needs to headline a PPV in the latter half of 2009.
