The UFC has discussed putting together a bout between Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida for some time, and now the fight might have a set event.

Henderson appeared on Thursday's new edition of MMA Uncensored Live on Spike TV, and said he's been told by the UFC that the bout with Machida will be a part of the UFC 156 event on Feb. 2 in Las Vegas. It's a major fight for the UFC's Super Bowl weekend card, as the winner may be the next to fight UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones after his bout with Chael Sonnen following The Ultimate Fighter 17.

Of course, Henderson had already been scheduled to face Jones at UFC 151, but a knee injury forced him out of the event, and set off a domino effect for the division from there. Because of waiting out the title shot and then suffering an injury, he'll miss the entirety of 2012, having not fought since his epic five-round win over Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 139 last November.

Machida lost out on a promised title shot after turning down his rematch with Jones on short notice. Machida was choked out by Jones at UFC 140 last December, but returned in August with a decisive stoppage win over Ryan Bader.

UFC 156 will be headlined by a Featherweight Championship bout between Jose Aldo and former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar, who will be making his debut at 145 lbs.
