      Piccolotti took down Henderson and took his back 90 seconds into the opening round. Henderson just kind of sat against the fence, while Piccolotti threw punches & elbows while clinging to his back. Piccolotti went for a rear-naked choke, and then an arm-triangle choke, and then Henderson stood back up with 45 seconds left in the round, and they finished the round by trading a few strikes. Round one clearly goes to Piccolotti.
     Henderson took down Piccolotti early in the second round, and tried to tie him up with a back crucifix. Henderson cranked on a standing guillotine choke 2 minutes into the round as Piccolotti stood back up, but wasn't able to hold onto it for very long. Henderson scored another takedown, and took Piccolotti's back with 2 minutes left in the round. Piccolotti eventually rolled to setup a leg lock, but couldn't get it. This fight is clearly all tied up going into the final round.
     Piccolotti took down Henderson to start the final round, and immediately found himself caught in Henderson's crack head guard. Henderson sort of locked on an awkward guillotine choke, but Piccolotti had side control, so he was able to get out of it, and then they both started wildly scrambling around while trying to find submissions. Piccolotti took Henderson's back with a minute left in the fight, he slapped on a rear-naked choke, and Henderson spun around into his guard, and spent the final 45 seconds on top. This was a close fight, it could probably go either way, but I scored it 29-28 for Henderson. Two judges agreed, giving him the hard fought split-decision victory.

      These guys traded a few strikes, and then Henderson scored a takedown 2 minutes into the opening round, pinning Awad against the fence. He eventually took his back, and basically just held on until the end of the round. Round one goes to Henderson.
     They traded some more strikes to start the second round, and then Henderson shot for a takedown 90 seconds into the round, Awad stuffed his shot, almost reversed him, and then Henderson ended up on top, and pinned Awad against the fence 2 minutes into the round. Henderson beat up Awad until the end of the round, leading to a 20-18 lead going into the final round. You could even argue a 10-8 round for the first round.
     The second round was more of the same. Henderson shot for an early takedown, Awad tried to stuff the shot, landed a questionable knee on the ground (to the shoulder? maybe?), and then Henderson kept driving through until he took down Awad 45 seconds into the round. He spent the rest of the round grinding out the 30-27 unanimous decision victory.

Submission (Guillotine Choke)
5:49
      Henderson started this fight with a hard high kick, which Huerta caught, and then Henderson punched him as they split apart. Henderson blasted Huerta with another head kick, and then Huerta tried to take him down from the clinch, but Henderson did a good job staying on his feet. Henderson threw Huerta to the ground a minute into the round, and Huerta didn't resist the takedown at all. Henderson dropped back for a heel hook, failed, so they popped back up, and started battling from inside the clinch, while Huerta failed repeatedly with his takedown attempts. Huerta finally scored a takedown halfway through the round, but Henderson quickly spun around to take Huerta's back, and then they just reset again. Round one goes to Henderson.
      They both came out swinging to start the second round, they both landed some big punches & kicks, Huerta fell down, he stood back up, shot for a takedown, Henderson caught him in a guillotine choke against the fence, and Huerta tapped out almost immediately. That was a decent win for Henderson, but Huerta is clearly washed up at this point, and I'm not sure if this will really do much to propel Henderson up the rankings at 155 in Bellator, considering both of these guys have had losing records as of late.
86.7
Decision (Split)
15:00
      The first round had both guys trading punches & kicks at a somewhat slow pace, without either guy really landing with much of anything significant. I have no idea who won the first round. I don't think either fighter did enough to clearly win the round. The second round had Henderson shooting for a deep takedown, while Pitbull stuffed the shit out of it, but Henderson never stopped pushing for it, so the entire round ended in a stalemate with Henderson pressing Pitbull against the fence. Going into the final round, I still don't think either fighter has done anything significant in this fight. This card has been pretty great so far, but this is a piss poor main event. I'm going to give the fight to whoever wins the final round. The final round was more of the same, with both guys throwing some sloppy shots, shooting for sloppy takedowns, and walking down each other, without either fighter ever coming close to finishing the fight. In the end, I feel like this fight was basically a draw. Maybe a split-decision for Pitbull? Either way, I have a feeling that Henderson is going to be pissed. Two judges gave the split-decision victory to Pitbull, which I think I agree with. That was a pretty lame fight overall though.

      Henderson came out timid again, and Chandler nearly knocked him out with a massive uppercut in the first round, he followed it up with some brutal punch combinations, Henderson was dropped, Chandler battered him with brutal punches, and then grabbed Henderson's back, and unleashed a brutal German Suplex, dropping Henderson on his neck, he slapped on a brutal looking guillotine choke, Henderson somehow escaped, Chandler continued to slaughter Henderson, he caught him in another guillotine choke, and then with 30 seconds left in the round, Chandler finally started to slow down, and Henderson grabbed his back and finished the round with some knees to Chandler's body. You could make an argument that this was a 10-8 round for Chandler, but the fact that Henderson recovered and finished the round in control, I'm scoring it 10-9 for Chandler.
     Henderson did a good job scoring points in the second round, as he was able to pick apart Chandler with some punches & kicks, while showing a lot more forward pressure. Henderson kicked Chandler in the dick with 90 seconds left in the round, so they took a brief timeout. Once the fight started back up, Henderson continued to blast Chandler with a lot of front kicks. That ended up being a fairly close round, but I scored the round for Henderson, so I have it all tied up going into the third round, but Jimmy gave the round to Chandler.
     The third round was all about Henderson kicking the shit out of Chandler and throwing him around the cage in the clinch. Henderson failed a takedown, but he was at least able to control the clinch. Chandler's left cheek is also bleeding at this point. Henderson landed a lot of nice knees to the body whenever Chandler would rush him, and he also landed a nice head kick halfway through the round. Henderson then shot for another takedown, and Chandler slapped on another tight guillotine choke, BUT AGAIN, somehow Henderson escaped that. Chandler ended the round on top, trying to setup a front choke, but Henderson escaped again. I was going to say Henderson won that round for sure, but it's hard to score against Chandler's chokes. Chandler COULD be ahead 3-0 going into the fourth round, or Henderson could be ahead 2-1? I have no idea at this point.
     Henderson landed some good strikes to start the fourth round, and then Chandler picked him up, carried him a few feet, and dumped him to the ground. They scrambled around on the ground for a few seconds, Henderson went for a Kimura, Chandler escaped, and then Chandler spent the rest of the round bullying Henderson, taking him down repeatedly, while beating him up on the ground. Henderson continued to work for submissions from his back, but it's hard to finish when you're on the bottom, and your opponent is in side control, with both of your legs locked together at the thighs. Henderson eventually got a good position at the end of the round where he was able to land some BRUTAL elbows to the body of Chandler, and then he finished the round with a back crucifix choke setup, but Chandler escaped right before the bell sounded. Henderson is fighting hard, but Chandler is more than likely ahead on the scorecards at this point, going into the final round. I personally have the fight all tied up.
     Henderson continued to beat up Chandler in the final round, he blasted him with a flying knee, took down Chandler, grabbed his back, went for the neck crank, Chandler spun out of it, Henderson went for an armbar, and Chandler ended up back on top at the halfway point of the round. At this point it's pretty clear Chandler is just hanging on, hoping the time runs out. Henderson on the other hand, is going for some pretty insane shit, he's beating up Chandler with heavy strikes on the ground, he's wrestling the living shit out of him, and the way these guys look at the end of this final round, I would personally rather be Benson Henderson, since Chandler looks like he's ready to die. Therefore, I'm scoring this fight 48-47 for Henderson. The judges were all over the place with their scorecards, and the audience clearly thought Henderson won, but two judges gave the fight to Chandler, so he's still the Champion. It was a really close fight, but fuck that, Henderson deserved that win.

TKO (Leg Injury)
7:26
      Henderson started the first round pressuring Pitbull, but he looked pretty timid. Pitbull caught a kick, and pushed Henderson to the ground, and then told him to stand back up. Pitbull landed a few decent strikes here & there, and Henderson threw a few things, but most of his attacks were blocked. The crowd was clearly getting bored 3 minutes into the opening round due to a relative lack of activity. Pitbull is clearly waiting to throw that one big counter, and Henderson knows it, so he's just kind of standing there, controlling the center of the cage. The crowd is booing loudly in the final 30 seconds of the round. I just hope the last 2 rounds are more entertaining than that one. I don't think either fighter really did enough to clearly win that round.
     The second round started slow, with Pitbull throwing more jabs, but neither fighter was really engaging at all. Henderson threw one big punch 90 seconds into the round, missed by a mile, and Pitbull took him down, almost immediately grabbing his back in the process. Henderson tried to crank on a Kimura, he threw a knee, Pitbull caught it, and then blasted Henderson with some big punches, and then just randomly quit the fight. Apparently Pitbull broke his foot? Or tweaked his knee? Or ankle? Or...? Anyone know what just happened? They even showed a slow motion replay, and it didn't look like anything happened at all. He clearly hurt his right foot, but I have no idea what happened. That was a terrible fight. Congrats to Henderson for his first Bellator win via a clear fluke injury. Henderson won a title shot from this? Seriously? I mean, I'll admit, I guess I was hoping Henderson's next fight would be for a title anyway, but I mean... Dude looks like shit in Bellator. If he continues to fight like this, Chandler is going to maul him.

Decision
25:00
      Holy fuck man! Benson Henderson is making his Bellator debut here, people are expecting him to come in and destroy some people, but... That first round was 100% all about Koreshkov, as he beat the living shit out of Henderson, slaughtering him with brutal kicks, using his insane range advantage, and he blasted Henderson with a flying knee at the end of the round that nearly knocked out Henderson. 10-8 round for Koreshkov.
      Let's be honest here, Henderson has NO BUSINESS fighting at 170 anymore. He is 100% a Lightweight fighter, and he needs to stay in his own weight class. The second round was another round of the much larger Koreshkov absolutely slaughtering Henderson on the feet, and Henderson wasn't able to get anywhere close to securing a takedown, due to the massive difference in reach. At this rate, Henderson will be lucky to even win a round.
      Henderson got rocked early in the third round, and then he shot for a deep takedown, pressing Koreshkov against the cage, but Koreshkov sprawled like a maniac, and then blasted Henderson with brutal elbows & punches to the head. Henderson refused to give up his one opportunity for a decent takedown, but he took WAY too much damage in that effort. Koreshkov spun out of that, and BRUTALLY murdered Henderson's body with some heavy knees on the ground, landed a deadly uppercut to his face on the ground. Koreshkov is a fucking maniac, and Henderson is getting completely outclassed in this fight, not only on the feet, but also on the ground at this point. Koreshkov landed a brutal spinning heel kick to Henderson's head in the final 10 seconds. I have Koreshkov ahead, 30-25 going into the fourth round. Henderson NEEDS to finish Koreshkov at this point, since it's mathematically impossible for him to even come close to Koreshkov's lead.
      I almost thought Henderson was applying enough pressure in the fourth round for him to MAYBE win that round, UNTIL... One minute left, and Koreshkov nearly knocked him out with some brutal punches, AND THEN, Koreshkov slapped on a guillotine choke, and tried to finish Henderson with a submission. This shit is getting embarrassing. At this point, you have to assume that Henderson doesn't stand a chance. Final round, and it's been 20 minutes of Koreshkov absolutely dominating Henderson so far.
      The final round was the same story. Henderson probably had his best round in that final round, and he still got his ass handed to him. Koreshkov fucking DESTROYED Henderson. Not just "sort of beat him up", but like... I'll honestly be surprised if Henderson ever wants to fight again after this fight. That was one of the worst 25 minutes I've ever seen for a fighter. Koreshkov on the other hand, looked like a fucking GOD. Andrey Koreshkov might legitimately be one of the best welterweights on the planet. Granted, I already said Henderson doesn't belong at 170, but... After watching an ass beating like that, it's hard to imagine that many people can hang with Koreshkov, with his brutal striking & amazing defensive wrestling. All 3 judges scored the fight 50-45 for Koreshkov. I scored that shit 50-43, MAYBE even 50-42. I've never seen anything like that before.

Decision
25:00
      I don't really know who won that round. Masvidal landed a LOT of big kicks, to the body & head of Henderson, but Henderson landed some great punches, and also bruised Masvidal's lead leg with kicks, and sort of secured a takedown at the end of the round. I'm assuming that round goes to Henderson? OH SHIT! That second round was getting pretty crazy. Both guys landed some solid shots, and Masvidal went for a guillotine at one point, Henderson rolled out of it, grabbed Masvidal, and tore his face up with knees, and also fucked up Masvidal's lead thigh with knees & heel strikes. Solid round for Henderson. Henderson continued to outwork Masvidal in the third round, but there were a few scary moments, like every time Henderson would shoot in for a takedown, he was leaving his neck exposed for a guillotine, but Henderson also showed some solid defense against those as well. The fourth round was another pretty close round, where Masvidal actually secured a takedown, but Henderson tied him up, and nothing really happened on the ground. Masvidal locked on another guillotine in the final round, and nearly finished the fight, but Henderson escaped. Masvidal's takedown defense is ridiculously good. The last half of that final round was a really wild grappling exchange, with both guys scrambling for superior positions. In the end, I gave the fight to Henderson, AT LEAST 3 rounds, if not 4. Two of the judges agreed, giving Henderson the split-decision victory.

Submission (Rear-Naked Choke)
18:58
      SHIT. I was really hoping Thatch would win this fight, because his first two UFC fights were fucking awesome, so I was looking forward to seeing him Bill Goldberg his way through the welterweight division. BUT... Benson Henderson accepted this fight on short notice to save the event, he moved up to 170 for the first time, and he got his ass beat for the first two rounds, but the last two rounds, Henderson spent a good portion of each round on Thatch's back, and Henderson finished him off with a rear-naked choke. So yeah, really good fight overall, and congrats to Henderson for a pretty huge win.
88.6
Decision
15:00
      Meh... This should have been an AWESOME fight, since in my opinion, Donald Cerrone is #1 in the division right now, and Benson Henderson is the former champ, so I was expecting this fight to be amazing, but in the end, it was another close fight, it went the distance, by the end of the fight, I had it scored as a draw, with neither fighter really doing much of anything impressive. I'm glad that Cerrone won though, because he's my favorite fighter at 155, but... The fight didn't quite live up to my expectations. This whole "accepting a fight on 2 weeks notice, after fighting a 3 round fight, 2 weeks beforehand" thing, is a bad idea. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing Cerrone fight again soon, but not 2 weeks from now.
90.4
KO (Punch)
2:31
      I really don't like Benson Henderson, because his fights have that tendency to always last 25 minutes. With that being said, he's been winning his fights a lot faster lately, so I was almost cheering for him in this fight, but Dos Anjos knocked him out about halfway through the first round of this fight. The part that sucks is, it was SORT OF a questionable stoppage. Big John said that Henderson was out, so I'll take his word for it, because he's one of the best referees out there, but yeah, once the fight was stopped, Henderson got up "fairly" quickly, not immediately, but "pretty quickly", so... Maybe an early stoppage? But honestly, if it wouldn't have been stopped, then Dos Anjos would have just smashed Henderson's face anyway, so I'll go ahead and call it a good stoppage, and a HUGE win for Rafael dos Anjos.
90.8
Submission (Rear-Naked Choke)
16:16
      FUCK. Rustam Khabilov is one of my favorite fighters, and I thought he was winning this fight, going into the fourth round. He definitely won the first round, the next two were close, but I still gave them to Khabilov. With that being said, the fourth round started, Henderson landed a big uppercut, Khabilov got rocked, and Henderson jumped on his back and locked on a rear-naked choke, and finished the fight via submission. That really sucks, but pretty good fight overall. I still REALLY want to see someone finish Henderson though.
89.5
Decision (Split)
25:00
      This was a pretty close fight from beginning to end, and you'd really have to watch it under a microscope to declare an official winner. With that being said, Henderson landed more strikes I think, and Thomson seemed to win a few more grappling exchanges, in my opinion. So in the end, it really could have gone either way, I don't like Henderson, so I WANTED Thomson to win, but I don't really like him either, so I guess I don't care about the results on this one. Henderson wins with a split-decision.

Submission (Armbar)
4:31
      YEAH!!! Somebody finally finished Benson Henderson! And in the first round none-the-less!!! This fight was pretty awesome, Benson Henderson started strong, trying to take Pettis to the ground, and trying to control him against the cage, but it didn't really matter, because once Pettis broke free, he threw some GIGANTIC body kicks that would have broken most men in half, and once the fight went to the ground, Henderson got on top, he looked confident, Pettis grabbed his arm, and BROKE THAT BITCH. Apparently Henderson verbally submitted, because you couldn't see a tap at all, but Pettis clearly ripped his arm off. Anthony Pettis is FUCKING LEGIT, and I'm proud of him for getting this belt. Finally we have a Lightweight Champion that I'm actually looking forward to watching fight again. And then he called out Jose Aldo already, for a Title vs. Title match!?! We'll see what happens.

25:00
      That sucks. He were are with ANOTHER decision, in the favor of Benson Henderson (dude needs to learn how to finish a fight!) But yeah, I'm glad that the fight was a SPLIT decision, since to me, I had mixed feelings about it. I technically probably would have declared it a draw, because I scored 2 of the rounds as a draw, 2 in favor of Henderson, and 1 in favor of Melendez, but I gave Melendez a higher rating overall, so it really was a mixed bag. To top it off, Benson proposed to his girlfriend or whatever during the post fight interview, which was a little awkward, considering the fact that the entire crowd was booing LOUDLY the entire time. It's really weird watching a heel propose on TV. So yeah, whatever, weird ending to an otherwise amazing card.
91.6
Decision
25:00
      Here we are with another Benson Henderson decision victory! That kind of sucks for me, since I wanted Nate Diaz to win, but whatever... I gave the third round to Diaz, other than that, he pretty much got dominated by the strength & athleticism of Benson Henderson. Benson had better striking, better wrestling, and better control of the pace overall. The only thing Diaz had going for him, was an active submission game, but since Benson was able to control the fight, he never really landed in much trouble. Benson is legit, I just don't like him.
94.0
Decision
25:00
      This was one hell of a scrap, just like their first fight. To be honest, I gave 3 rounds to Edgar, 1 round to Henderson, and 1 round I would have said was a draw. With that being said, the judges gave the fight to Henderson via split-decision, which I think was KIND OF bullshit, but either way, good fight overall I guess. I would like to see one of these guys eventually finish someone though. Nate Diaz is up next against Benson Henderson? Should be a good fight.
95.4
Decision
25:00
      This was a pretty amazing title fight. Bendo kept throwing kicks to Edgar's body, but Edgar caught 90% of them, and from those kicks, spawned some crazy flying spin kicks, great takedowns, excellent striking from both guys, knees, kicks, punches, elbows, etc... In the end, Henderson pretty much controlled the entire fight, and destroyed Edgar's face, and the judges saw it the same way I did, giving the fight to Henderson via unanimous decision. Amazing way to earn his first UFC Championship Belt. Frankie Edgar is a maniac though, most guys wouldn't have been able to stay in a fight like this for 25 minutes.
93.1
Decision
15:00
      NOOOOO!!! This was a badass fight, and both guys were like bolts of lightning, firing off at each other for 15 minutes nonstop. So great fight overall, but I've been pushing for Guida to get closer to a title shot for a long time now, and I've never really liked Benson Henderson, so for me to have to admit that Benson Henderson won this fight, that pains me deeply. I will say though, I gave the third round to Clay Guida, for locking on that guillotine choke, that was one of the most effective moments in the fight, but overall, Benson Henderson kept the best positions throughout the fight, so I guess he wins. That's fine, but I hope the UFC doesn't forget Clay Guida, that dude still needs to get some good fights!
91.8
Decision
15:00
      Well, I've never really been a fan of Benson Henderson, and I've been a HUGE supporter of Jim Miller for a long time now, but I have to admit, other than the first round, which I gave to Miller, this entire fight was a one-sided ass beating, delivered by Benson Henderson. He had some pretty incredible ground & pound, great submission defense, decent submission offense, and overall, I guess this means he's the #1 contender. What a fucked up turn of events...
88.6
Decision
15:00
      This was a pretty solid fight, with Benson Henderson controlling the vast majority of the situations. Bocek went for a few solid submissions, but he wasn't actually able to complete any of them. He basically just got outworked by Henderson, and all 3 judges gave all 3 rounds to Benson Henderson, and I did as well. Good fight overall, but I hate seeing guys this size when they can't finish the fight.

Decision

      Benson Henderson was blasting Pettis with some pretty brutal punches & knees in the first round, and he was overpowering him in the clinch as well. Henderson took Pettis down, and controlled him on the ground for the last half of the round. Round one was an outstanding performance for Benson Henderson. Pettis was able to get back to his feet in the final minute of the round, where he landed some decent kicks, but Henderson took him back down to secure the round.
     Pettis rocked Henderson early in the second round, knocked him down, and tried to take his back, but Henderson recovered quickly. Pettis was still able to slam him, Henderson popped back up, and took Pettis down. They stood back up, and traded some hard strikes. The second round was a very even back & forth round. Pettis kicked Henderson in the dick late in the round, but Henderson didn't seem bothered by it. I'm scoring that round a draw.
     Benson was throwing some EXPLOSIVE punches in the third round, but Pettis took him down and grabbed his back just 90 seconds into the round. Pettis spent the rest of the round riding Henderson, while beating him up with short punches, and constantly threatening with that rear-naked choke. Round 3 clearly goes to Anthony Pettis. I have the fight all tied up going into the fourth round.
     The fourth round had a wild scramble, where both guys were moving on the ground like lightning, it was REALLY hard to keep track of their transitions, but Pettis went for a guillotine, Henderson flipped out of it, and then shit just got really fucking crazy for a minute or so, until Henderson grabbed Pettis's back. He locked on the body triangle, and what appeared to be an extremely tight rear-naked choke, and somehow Pettis was able to survive. Halfway through the round, Pettis somehow rolled out of that, and ended up on Henderson's back again. This is one of the craziest grappling matches I've seen in a while. They broke apart, and traded some strikes, Pettis went for another guillotine choke, and Henderson just calmly hung out on top of Pettis. Very competitive round, but I have to score that round for Pettis, based on the guillotine attempt at the end. This fight really could be going either way at this point though. Crazy fight.
     The final round started with Pettis kicking Henderson in the dick again. Once the fight started back up, they continued to attack each other aggressively, throwing flying knees, heavy punches, wild kicks, all kinds of crazy shit. Henderson took Pettis down again, halfway through the round. They stood back up, traded a few strikes, Pettis landed a hard head kick, Henderson backed up, and Pettis ran up the wall, jumped off the fence, kicked Henderson in the face, and nearly knocked him out. That was one of the best kicks I've ever seen. Henderson started digging for a takedown, while trying to recover, and Pettis just kept pounding on him with big punches. In the end, I think you would HAVE to score this fight 48-47 for Pettis, if not 49-46. All 3 judges agreed, giving him the unanimous decision victory. Anthony Pettis is the new WEC Lightweight Champion.

Submission (Guillotine Choke)
1:57
      This fight had a slow start, Cerrone eventually threw a leg kick, and Henderson shot for a takedown, ending with Henderson clinching with Cerrone against the cage. He blasted him with some heavy knees, to the head & the legs. Cerrone spun out of that, Henderson took him down with a body lock, blasted him with some punches, mounted him, Cerrone rolled out of that, Henderson slapped on a tight guillotine choke, and Cerrone was forced to submit in just under two minutes of the first round. That was a pretty amazing performance by Benson Henderson.

Submission (Guillotine Choke)
12:41
      Varner grabbed Henderson, and slammed him to the ground early in the first round, and Henderson immediately started looking for a leg lock, while Varner beat up his body. Varner grabbed a front head lock, and blasted Henderson's body with some big knees. Varner slapped on an official guillotine choke, nearly lifting Henderson into the air, and then he blasted him with a huge knee to the face, which caused Henderson to collapse. The referee stood them back up with a couple of minutes left in the round. Henderson blasted Varner with something, Varner held his eye and walked away, and Henderson attacked him, but Varner did a good job getting him back under control, taking him back down, where he continued to beat up Henderson's body with punches & knees. Round one goes to Varner.
     They traded strikes for most of the second round at a pretty moderate pace, and then Henderson threw a kick, Varner caught it, and threw Henderson to the ground. That one move MIGHT have been enough to score the round for Varner. They spent the final minute of the round in the clinch, with Varner in control. Good competitive fight so far. They traded a few strikes in the third round, Henderson landed some nice kicks to the body, along with a nice head kick. Varner looked like he was a little scared in the final round. Halfway through the round, Varner shot for a takedown, Henderson stopped him with a flying guillotine choke, and Varner tapped out almost immediately. That was a great finish for Benson Henderson.

      Henderson plowed right into Cerrone for a takedown to start the fight, but he got caught in a tight power guillotine, which Cerrone used to put Henderson on his back. They rolled around for a few seconds, and Cerrone transitioned into a triangle choke. Two minutes into the first round, Henderson finally got back to his feet, where Cerrone was able to pick him apart with strikes. Henderson secured a takedown, and Cerrone immediately went back into submission mode, as Henderson landed some hard punches from the sky. By the end of the round, Henderson was beating up Cerrone. That round honestly could have gone either way. The second round was another wild round of grappling, with Henderson shooting for a takedown, and Cerrone magically ending up on Henderson's back. Henderson spun him around, and Cerrone immediately started looking for another triangle. Cerrone was also throwing some hard punches from his back, up at the face of Henderson. Cerrone was also landing some brutal upkicks. Henderson kept coming forward though, as he continued to drop bombs down at Cerrone. Cerrone tried to setup a leg lock of some sort near the end of the round. That round technically could have gone either way as well, but it probably goes to Henderson for looking like he's in control.
     The third round was a repeat of the second round, with Henderson standing up above Cerrone, raining down bombs, while Cerrone was throwing upkicks at his face, and working for submissions from his guard. Cerrone got back up, beat up Henderson on the feet a little bit, and Henderson kept coming forward as well. I don't really think either fighter has a clear advantage yet, going into the fourth round. The fourth round started with Cerrone slapping on another tight guillotine choke, which looked like he could rip off Henderson's head at any minute, but apparently Henderson was fine? The fourth round slowed down significantly compared to the rest of the fight, but the final minute or so had Cerrone standing above a downed Henderson, as he threw several uppercuts and leg kicks, while Henderson laid on his back. Going into the final round, I'm going to say this fight is all tied up. Henderson spent most of the round on his knees, struggling to secure a takedown, while Cerrone continued to beat him up with those uppercuts on the ground, and those leg kicks while standing above Henderson. Halfway through the round, Cerrone slapped on another triangle choke, followed by an omoplata. Cerrone NEARLY ripped Henderson's arm off, and he just gave a thumbs up for it like it didn't even hurt. In the end, I thought this fight could have maybe gone either way, but I personally scored it for Donald Cerrone, 48-47. All 3 judges disagreed though, giving the fight to Benson Henderson. This was one of the best fights I've seen in a while at least, even though I think Cerrone sort of got screwed.

      OH SHIT! This fight started, Roller BLASTED Henderson with some massive punches, knocked him on his ass against the cage, and Roller went for his usual guillotine choke, which might lead you to believe that this fight is all over!!! Henderson was able to survive though, and he reversed positions, stood back up, kept up the clinch against the cage, while throwing some short knees to the body of Roller. Henderson threw Roller to the ground, they stood back up, and Henderson went wild on Roller's face with a barrage of punches, knocking him on his ass. Henderson mounted him, with his dick in Roller's face, pressing him against the cage, and Henderson unloaded on Roller with some massive punches, finishing the fight in just under 2 minutes of the first round. Great performance by Benson Henderson, against a tough opponent.

      Njokuani is the striker, and Henderson is the grappler, and it didn't take long for Henderson to shoot in for a takedown, and he wrapped his way around to Njokuani's back pretty quickly, but Njokuani did a decent job inside some of the scrambles, but every time Njokuani would escape, Henderson would jump right back into either mount, or back mount. About halfway through the first round, there was a wild scramble, and Njokuani went for an armbar, but Henderson rolled out of it without much trouble. They continued to roll around, and Henderson went for a heel hook. Henderson is a grappling machine. The second round started, Henderson violently took Njokuani to the ground, he smashed him with some elbows, slapped on a tight guillotine choke, and Njokuani was forced to submit. That was an incredible WEC debut by Benson Henderson.
