Benson Henderson Biography

Benson Henderson was born November 16, 1983 and is an American mixed martial artist, current UFC Lightweight Champion, and former WEC Lightweight Champion. Henderson is known for his aggressive style, cardio, and ability to escape from deep submission attempts. As of August 2012, Henderson is ranked as the #1 lightweight fighter in the world by Sherdog.

In October 2010, World Extreme Cagefighting merged with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. As part of the merger, all WEC fighters were transferred to the UFC. Henderson made his UFC debut at UFC 129 on April 30, 2011, defeating Mark Bocek via unanimous decision.

Henderson next faced Jim Miller on August 14, 2011 at UFC on Versus 5. Henderson dominated the streaking Miller throughout the fight, utilizing a stiff jab, great transitions, and vicious ground and pound throughout the match to snap Miller's 7 fight win streak, the third longest in the UFC at the time. Despite being threatened with multiple deep submission attempts, Henderson escaped each attempt and advanced position with increasingly brutal punches and elbows. He earned a unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 30-26).

Henderson faced Clay Guida on November 12, 2011 at UFC on Fox 1. He won the fight via unanimous decision after three rounds in an action packed war that earned both fighters Fight of the Night honors. With the win, he became the #1 contender for the UFC Lightweight title.

Henderson faced Frankie Edgar on February 26, 2012 at UFC 144. Henderson defeated Edgar via unanimous decision to become the new UFC Lightweight Champion. Both participants earned Fight of the Night honors for their performance.

A rematch with Edgar took place on August 11, 2012 at UFC 150 In a bout which was very tightly contested, Henderson defeated Edgar again, this time via split decision.

Henderson is expected to face Nate Diaz on December 8, 2012 at UFC on Fox 5.
