Dan Henderson scheduled for UFC 199 bout against Hector Lombard
<p>Following the mishap with his bout against Lyoto Machida in Tampa, Dan Henderson has been scheduled instead to face Hector Lombard in June, <a href="http://mmajunkie.com/2016/04/penne-vs-andrade-henderson-vs-lombard-headed-to-ufc-199">as confirmed by MMAJunkie.com.</a></p>
<p>Only three days out of the fight, Lyoto Machida admitted his use of banned substances to the UFC. Machida, who said he was unaware of the ban of 7-keto-DHEA, which is sold legally in supplement stores across the US, was pulled from his scheduled bout. As a result, Dan Henderson has been scheduled to fight at UFC 199 instead.</p>
<p>Henderson (31-14) has won two of his past five bouts, both coming by way of knockout. The 45-year old last fought in the main event of UFC Fight Night 77 where he faced Vitor Belfort in a rematch, losing via first-round knockout. Prior to that, the former Olympian proved he can still compete by scoring a 28-second knockout over Tim Boetsch.</p>
<p>Hector Lombard (34-5-1, 2 NC) announced his move back up to middleweight following his recent loss to Neil Magny in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 85. Lombard made a fairly successful drop to welterweight in 2013, winning three fights in a row, one of which was overturned to a no-contest following the failure of a drug test.</p>
<p>UFC 199 will be held at The Forum in Los Angeles, California on June 4. The card will be headlined by a rematch between former middleweight champion Chris Weidman and current champion Luke Rockhold. The co-main event features the rubber match between rivals Urijah Faber and bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz. </p>
