02:30 PM ET 02.19 | Dan Henderson believes Anderson Silva has been picking his opponents in order to preserve his legacy. "I think Anderson, for the last five years, has tried, tried to pick and choose who he fights and manipulates the UFC a little bit. You know, he didn't want to fight Chael again, after the first time. Obviously, he did after a while. You know he didn't want to fight me again. He kind of tries to stay away from guys that are dangerous or have a dangerous style for him, especially because he's looking toward the end of his career and he wants to retire without losing again. It's not necessarily how a champ should be, but at the same time, he's trying to be smart about things. It's all debatable," Henderson said.

You had a lot of respect for Hendo until I found out he was on of the many TRT users.
