Benson Henderson having a tough time maintaining weight

UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson is very vague when he is asked how much weight he cuts prior to a fight. Henderson is currently set to defend his title a second time against Nate Diaz this December at UFC On Fox: Henderson Vs. Diaz.

A former wrestler, cutting weight has always been part of Henderson's life. Now, as he continues to age, "Smooth" knows he is likely headed for another weight class down the road.

Quote:
"I'm growing, but as far as maturing and getting thicker, I think I'm getting older right now - and it's getting harder for me to lose the weight," said Henderson, in an interview with MMAjunkie.com. "It's harder for me to keep the weight off."


Henderson (17-2) has won all five of his UFC bouts, including two over Frankie Edgar. He knows that the days of eating fast food and remaining on-weight are over.

Quote:
"When I was in college and wrestling, I would wrestle all day long and not get tired," Henderson said. "I remember wrestling hard for five hours - literally five hours hard - and be just fine. I would eat friggin' Taco Bell, and be fine, and wrestle again."

Just cause you say it doesn't change what really happened. Edgar didn't do enough to sway the judges and Bendo didn't do enough to sway most of you guys. Does that make either you ror the judges more right or wrong????NO, but the judges vote counts and the fight was close enough for me to be ready for whichever way the decision went and I thought Ben took it.

That was not my point though. The fact that Edgar, a guy who could probably even make 135 was able to hang with a guy who's move to 170 is just a matter of time, was.

Yeah much respect to edgar staying around and using his speed to out point everyone he is faster than. BUt as is the case eventually that wont work and it didnt work with Ben (TWICE) say what you want about the judges, but me and many other thought it was close enough to go either way. I see what your saying but stop and ask why Frankie won't move down...no KO power, no speed advantage, so basically he would be an above average wrestler facing faster opponents with many of them also being above average wrestlers and the rest with decent ground games...and alot with more KO power than him...So seems like Frankie is taking what he thinks to be the easy way out.

At least he can win fights by doing nothing.

Just stay at 155 a little longer so Pettis can get a hold of you again, please. The next time he puts Bendo on his highlight reel he won't get up.

Right, cause the guy couldnt handle Guida, won a aplit decision against Lil Heathen, and caught J Lau. So his crazy highlight that only dropped Ben, didnt even hurt him, makes people think he is gonna run through the champ...RIGHT.

Bendo has always been a huge LW, the dude is THICK! He should be fine though for the time being, he probably won't move up unless he starts losing.
