UFC lightweight champ Benson Henderson has no regrets about his performance against former title-holder Frankie Edgar when the two tangled in February at UFC 144. The bout featured Henderson handling the slippery Edgar and emerging from the bout with a belt in tow. However, in the eyes of some the fight was close enough to dictate an immediate rematch due to Edgar’s openness to the same scenario a few times while in ownership of the strap.
This time around Henderson plans of sealing the deal whether with a finish or far more convincing outcome in hopes of proving he’s on his way to being one of MMA’s all-time best.
“I just wanna be the best, the greatest of all time. I got a lot of hard work, a lot of steps to go, before I get there. Thankfully I’m not scared of hard work,” explained “Bendo” in an extended preview for their upcoming fight at UFC 150. “Every fight I have from now on is going to be the fight of my life, to be the career-defining moment. I will defeat Frankie Edgar for the second time. I will remain the lightweight champ of the world.”
Henderson has won four straight since joining the UFC’s roster including wins over Edgar, Jim Miller, and Clay Guida. Meanwhile, his success against Edgar snapped a seven-fight unbeaten streak for “The Answer”.
