A Confident Ben Henderson Proclaims That Edgar Will Never Ever Beat Him | UFC NEWS

By Jamie McAllister
UFC Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson comments to Bloodyelbow.

Henderson comments on his last fight with Frankie Edgar at UFC 144. He also comments on their rematch which is expected to take place at UFC 150.

“Who knows? I think a part of that is Dana White being the big boss man and head honcho, scored the fight another way. He felt that fight warranted an immediate rematch, which is fine by me. It’s cool. It was a fun fight for me. I had a good time in there. As far as running it back, by all means, let’s do it. We can run it back 10 times, but 10 times out of 10 times, I intend on having the same outcome, if not ending the fight earlier. In my opinion, that’s a really tough spot to be in, as a champ. Frankie did it twice. He said, ‘Yeah, that’s fine. Let’s do it. It was a close decision, so let’s run it back.’ He showed what he has inside, by agreeing to that. I want to be the same way. I want to show what I have inside, and agree to it. Let’s run it back. I have no problem with that at all.”

Henderson also comments on his former WEC rival Anthony Pettis.

“I’m definitely not going to sleep on Pettis. That boy is explosive, he’s very skilled, he’s very driven. I’m not going to sleep on his skillset or anything he brings to the table. He had a tough fight. He had some holes that got exposed, but I’m sure he’s been working on those since. I’m sure he’ll be way better in his next fight then he was in his last one. Other than seeing how much heart a guy has, I like to see how much better they get from fight to fight. For me, I always want to be a better fighter than my last fight. Pettis is also one of those guys. He is a better fighter, with each fight, and I think he’s going to continue that.”

    Great comments from a great champion. Bendo for the win, again…

    • Bigtittiesandthekids says:

      Your a jack ass, he hasn’t even defended the title and your calling him a great champion..this cocky Ben Henderson is in for a rude awakening.

      • ThaGreenBandit says:

        Stop fucking crying about whether a man has confidence or not. You act like he should be telling the world that he’s lucky he’s even allowed to fight in the octagon, let alone be the champ. Pussies like you are always quick to call someone who know’s they’re good, cocky. Probably because you’ve never felt what it feels like to win, so you hate seeing another person enjoy that feeling.

      • hookupz says:

        lets see, when it happen again

      • 'Ekahi says:

        The public has spoken…

      • BRobs says:

        Now usually I don’t do this, but since you decided to flex your keyboard muscles, it is *YOU’RE, not your, you jackass. Rude awakening? He owned Frankie in the first match. Stats don’t lie ( You must be a Frankie fan-boy. Benson is as classy as they come. You could learn a thing or two.

      • GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

        Ben hendersen is a very nice guy and if you think he is arragant then you really must hate Jon Jones. Bendo is nothing but a class act 24/7/365 and unlike Jones he is not FAKE. Bendo will smash Edgar (A G A I N ) this time he will have to chase after him prob even more but same outcome. Edgar will be beat half to death with his brains being put thru a blender like all his fights. Bendo will look exact same as when he walked in cage with not a mark on him. How can you Edgar nuthuggers say a guy like Bendo who went 5 rounds winning in every possible aspect of MMA, points , damage, fight metric (by a landslide) and not have one damn mark or black eye and not even look like he had been in a fight and you say he lost. Edgar looked like he ran out in front of a bus for god sake. Bendo smashed Edgar and this rematch is bullsh’it. Edgar has ruined the LW divsion in last 3-4 years. Lets see he was out for a year with injuries. He got a bullshit win over BJ, he lost to maynard 5-6 knockdowns one round but was given a draw. Least dominate champion ever

    • GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

      Let’s see Edgars entire gameplan pitter patter and runa way and try and steal a decision while looking beat half to death like he jsut got hit by a bus then all his nuthuggers will come on here and say he only got hit by one punch the entire fight. No fighter in MMA history has stolen more decsion’s or bullshit draws than Edgar. His brain is 3 punches from being mush and he will regret it very soon

  2. bilbobaggins says:

    he actually talks sense and unlike JBJ he seems to seem real about it yet he doesnt get the same exposure

    • Clay says:

      Rashad Evans says bones is fake and now all of a sudden everyone knows him personally? and says he’s not ‘real’? Why don’t u get your own opinion douche

      • oscar says:

        Clay thanks i agree w u n i dont understand where all the jbj hatred came from

      • Mc says:

        Man people decided on their own they thought jbj was fake or a douche. Incase u don’t remember rashad was one of the most hated fighters when he said that shit. I don’t think influenced that many people. I think watching jbj in press conferences and interviews answer Q’s people could tell he’s just tryn to say what he thinks makes him sound the most marketable.

        • Clay says:

          I don’t remember rashad ever being the most hated person ever. He’s the one that started the rumor that jbj was fake and everyone started running with it. He’s not fake. His job requires him to act and speak professionally because millions of people are watching. You’re being ignorant. just watch his fights bro. Quit worrying about his personality unless your trying to date him.

  3. D-yan says:

    Ben is way bigger he cuts so much weight to make that, now that they have the smaller divisions frankie should drop its impressive he won the title and defended it with his size in the first place. prediction: ud for ben frankie drops down.

  4. Michael hamlin says:

    Ben will win

  5. rondo says:

    Lets see what Benson has to say after the fight,I’m sure Frankie doesn’t see it the same way.

  6. John M says:

    Ben Henderson is a great Champion! Class act and works his ass off, I’d rather see him the champ then the jersey trash

  7. Nick says:

    Still don’t understand how people saw the last fight go Frankie’s way, either way I see Benson taking this fight the same way.

  8. Damnu says:

    Classy champ Edgar will be forced to retire after this loss then losing a embarrassing fight with aldo

  9. DMAC says:

    Bendo is that dude! Cocky but doesn’t fake like he isn’t like bones jones. IMO he shouldn’t have rematches Frankie, he beat the breaks off the guy. I see him finishing Edgar second time around.

  10. tkrelz says:

    people thought bendo got lucky when he beat cowboy the 1st time…..then what happened

  11. Zach says:

    Well Ben can have lots of fun losing to diaz

  12. stewbot says:

    I hope Bendo seriously makes a statement and finishes Edgar. I like Edgar, so much respect for him and he is a great fighter. No denying any of that. But I’m sick and tired of seeing this guy and all the title rematches. I think most fans agree when DW thinks that a move down to FW is the best move for Frankie, even then he would only have to be cutting about 10 pounds of weight.

  13. Nick says:

    Ben is gonna finish Frankie. I had it Ben 4 rounds to 1. You’d have to be blind to see it any other way.

  14. Diezel says:

    Jose Aldo will Not run thru Frankie Edgar.. Edgar would put him on his back for sure.. I wouldn’t count him out in the Henderson Fight Either…

  15. cobra Kai-mmander says:

    Ben was all action, edgar was about his hit n Run game. how the f*ck can people even say that frankie won that. Frankie was backing up the entire fight trying to counter strike.

    Smooth Henderson comes to fight,Bang, and Brawl. Edgar comes to do combat aerobic pilates. Done Son.

  16. pussies says:

    Edgar chips ppl the fuck up and wins. How would u feel sum kid fucked u up for 25 mins and left u looking like Sean sherk. This boy is for real no matter wat u bitches say Frankie will be champ in this weightclass or the next

  17. Mike cannon jr says:

    Edgar is a lay and pray .. Er….. I don’t know a single Edgar fan…. Who thinks this guy is good?… Twats… Thinx Edgar should become a marathon runner professionally…that way… When I see him running… It’ll be because he’s Sposta ….. Not because it’s what’s in his pitty pat nature…

  18. Mike cannon jr says:

    Tackling somebody doesnt make u winner… Unless… Very much like football… Times running out… And your ahead on the scoreboard/ card… That’s not fighting… He’s a great wrestler… But mma.. Isn’t wrestling..

  19. Homer pimpson says:

    Edgar will win the rematch, I also had edgar winning the first fight 3-2…Ben is a great fighter but I can see right through his smoke and mirrors. Flash and pumping up the crowd in between rounds doesn’t get you any extra points IMO

  20. My spouse and I stumbled over here by a different web page and thought I might as well check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to looking at your web page for a second time.
