Does Henderson even deserve a title shot?

He didn't fight last year - his last fight was an epic war with Shogun in 2011, in which he spent the last two rounds face-down on the canvas, totally exhausted.

Since that fight, Shogun has been in a war with Brandon Vera, and then been steamrolled by Gustafsson, who beat him much easier than Hendo did.

Whereas all Henderson has done since November 2011 is get injured, have no fights, and turn 42 years old.
