Dan Henderson and Matt Lindland are at odds over the rights to Team Quest.

Last week, Dan Henderson filed a lawsuit in California against Matt Lindland that alleges copyright and trademark infringement over the use of the name Team Quest.

Cagepotato.com first reported the story.

Henderson and Randy “The Natural” Couture started Team Quest in 1999. Lindland joined the team in 2001. According to the complaint, Henderson and Couture are “senior” users of the Team Quest mark.

Couture signed off on his rights to Team Quest to Henderson. In 2005, Lindland filed trademarks for Team Quest with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office without informing them that Henderson and Couture had senior rights.

At the center of the dispute is the use of Team Quest, Team Quest MMA Fitness and the Team Quest logo.
