MMAWeekly Radio kicks off a new week with two fighters from the UFC on Fox show this weekend with Benson Henderson and DaMarques Johnson stopping by the show.

Henderson faces Clay Guida this weekend in a fight most believe will determine the next No. 1 contender in the UFC’s lightweight division.

Despite the magnitude of the fight, the Henderson vs. Guida fight will only be available online, and even if the main event fight between Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos goes :10 seconds, the lightweight match-up won’t make it to air.

“When I first heard about it, I will admit I was a little peeved, a little bit upset to be honest,” Henderson told MMAWeekly Radio. “Not that my opinion matters at all if I am upset or not, but when I first found out about it I was a little bit upset, kind of sad.”

Henderson of course moved on after the initial news and is now focused solely on beating Guida and hopefully earning a shot at the UFC lightweight belt.

Also on the show, DaMarques Johnson discusses the psychology of fighting and what he’s learned lately that he believes will carry him to victory when he faces Clay Harvison this weekend.

Finally, Damon and Jeff break down the entire UFC 138 fight card and what went down in England this weekend.
