UFC129 was the first time i had watched him fight and i was very impressed. I can see he becoming one of my favourites at lightweight.

Here!

Been a fan of the guy since WEC.
I've only watched his last 5 fights, but what FIGHTS!
Especially Cerrone 1 and Pettis.

Henderson has some serious skills and with time he will only get better.

He pretty much dominated a fighter that gave Jim Miller a hard fight.

Henderson will be a major contender in the UFC's LW division.

.



BELIEVE!

Yeah, Henderson is super exciting. He's humongous for a LW too. If he continues to improve I think he could take a run at the UFC belt.

Henderson definitly has energy and cardio, which is all the more impressive when you consider he is one of the biggest if not the biggest guy at LW.

Henderson is an animal, easily top 10.

After Pettis is done with Guida, I'd like to see Bendo beat him up too and put an end to this Guida hype train.

Highly exciting fighter and always a pleasure to watch.
But this christianity is a bit too much. It's cringe worthy because it doesn't even come off as sincere. I try to avoid his post fight interviews. Fantastic in the cage, though.

really? the dude has WINGS!

bendo is simply AWESOME, ive been a huge fan for some time now and i always thought he would be a top guy in the UFC, hes very well rounded with great cardio, i knew he wouldnt get caught in a sub...hes one of the toughest guys in the UFC to finish, it was a great fight, i thought it would have been FOTN until aldo vs hominick, i thought aldo would get KOTN

losing to pettis shouldnt make him drop too much since i think pettis will probably become champ and i see no reason bendo cant climb his way up to a title shot so we can get to see an epic rematch

Ben Henderson is an elite lightweight. I mean, he as the champ at WEC and only lost a close decision to another elite fighter. I give him a chance against anybody at lightweight right now (there really are too many great lightweights). I mean he really is very well rounded and has a great pace and gas tank.

There's nobody he matches up against who I think has a real stylistic advantage over him. Maybe Frankie has the speed and TD defense?

His performance at 129 wasn't anything surprising. One should have expected him to beat Bocek by virtue of the fact that Henderson is both the better athlete and the more rounded mixed martial artist. Bocek's grappling is good, but he's never gone up against somebdy (and won), who could stop it from going to the ground, or once it got there, have the escape ability for it not to matter.
