Why did Benson Henderson agree to take a step up from 155 pounds to 170 to fight one of the UFC’s fastest rising welterweight stars? How hard did the loss to Donald Cerrone hit him?

The former UFC lightweight champion answered all of this and more in a scrum with and other media outlets as he prepared to fight Brandon Thatch at UFC Fight Night 60 just outside of Denver.

    Something about Benson (split decision) Henderson that I just don’t like. I can appreciate him stepping up and taking this on short notice at a higher weight class, but I won’t be rooting for him.

      He’s had definitely 2 ….if not 3 or 4 decisions that should have gone the other way. Edgar twice. Josh Thompson. Melendez, etc. It was hilarious that he finally lost one to Cerrone.
