Ben Henderson: Aldo vs. Pettis Fight Is ‘Horse Manure’

With his return to the win column still fresh on his mind, former UFC lightweight champion, Benson Henderson apparently thought he should get a rematch with Anthony Pettis.

But that wouldn’t make all that much sense would it?

During the UFC 169 post-fight presser, UFC President Dana White, sitting alongside his featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, discussed the possibility of an Aldo vs. Pettis bout.

Henderson isn’t happy it. Check it:

    What happened was you took one thumbed Josh to a dec,with a sub par performance that some think you shouldn’t have even won, and you think you deserve the title fight with Pettis? That’s bull dust dude.

  2. UFC 84 Forever says:

    I’m a Benson fan but that is way too entitled Ben. You haven’t earned a title shot man, not even close. I’m starting to say this a lot,but magoo said it best.

    TG Grant ass must be very loose from getting screwed over and over again by Dana White !! The UYFC never waited for him to get healed when he was #1 contender !! Like they did with Pettis or Aldo!!! And a slap in the face for Cub Swanson to bring him to 169 only to not even bring him in the ring as promised for a shot at the title winner Aldo or Lamas!!

      So you don’t wanna see Pettis vs aldo?

    • JJErler says:

      Swanson is a likely title contender for Aldo’s belt if he vacates to move up to lightweight… he shouldn’t complain it’s the easy road to the belt for him because I guarantee you he would not beat Aldo. So it’s a sweet deal for Swanson, not a bad deal. As for Grant it sucks for him but it’s not the UFC’s fault he got injured and pulled out of his title shot.

    I am a huge Henderson fan I think he beat Thompson but even if he KOed Thompson in round one I think he should have to get one more win to get another title shot.

    • JJErler says:

      There’s no thinking as to whether he beat Thompson if you look at the fight metrics. He did win, it was just lackluster and not deserving of a title rematch. I do think he should get one more win and it better be impressive for that title shot… but if he had won impressively enough against Thomson, I can at least see why he’d be calling for the title shot…

      • Brandon Canterbury says:

        I could see why he would be but you gotta think he loss to Pettis twice and the second time wasn’t like the first he got finished in round 1, I think he should need 2 at the vary least but the stacked 155 division seems to be short on challengers.

  5. Xaninho says:

    Correction: The Henderson-Thomson fight was horse manure, or rather that ridiculous split-decision going Henderson’s way.

    • JJErler says:

      Look at the fight metrics. Ben won it easily. Vastly outstruck Thomson and take downs were a TIE. Ben deserved the win, but it definitely was not a win that should get him a title match and he probably would not have won if not for Thomson’s injury.
