Benson Henderson Addresses The Fans On Finishing Rate

I know I’m not the best (yet, ;-D), I was never the fastest, or strongest, or most athletic, or most technical or anything like that. Go ahead and ask any of my high school or college wrestling coaches. I was never picked 1st in dodgeball or basketball or soccer or football games growing up but one thing I always had was the will power and determination to NEVER give up, to not be afraid to open up my heart and give all of myself, to not hold anything back for the swim back to shore.

I guess I’m supposed to apologize that I’m no AndersonSilva or BJPenn, who is? I’m just that kid who would never stop, the kid whose older brother friends used to beat in 10 games of basketball (in a row) but would be pushing for the 11th game, yeah that’s me. And just like back then I’m not going ANYWHERE, you want my belt, you’re gonna have to pry it from my cold fingers.

No, I’m not the best but guess what, I’ve got the UFC LW belt and I’m just getting started, I’m getting better every single day…think about that, let that sink in.

A HUGE thanks to my growing family, faithful friends and real fans.

    Fuck a finish rate, Bendos fight are pure entertainment. LW division has some serious brawlers and bendo has fought like hell against every guy he has ever been in the octagon with. Its not like watching a GSP fight, where his main goal is to build a lead on the scorecard and then protect it, Bendo isnt afraid to get hit, he will eat a punch, throw a punch and ask for another. By this time next year people will be calling him “possibly the best LW in the history of the sport”

  2. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    Gotta Love Bendo, but alas he said it himself. He’s NOT the best at 55. Either was Edgar. Bendo will be getting beat soon. Most likely Gray will be the next 55 champ. The era of mediocre champs, like Andy Silva, holding the belt long is about over.

  3. YoMama says:

    bendo is not boring. Bendo is not lay and pray like GSP. Bendo did not beat Gilbert Milendez.

  4. Cheshirecat says:

    Bendork cut the hair.

  5. Ddddddd says:

    Awwwwwe he’s so humble. It almost makes me feel bad for making fun of snaggletooth.

  6. Shameful says:

    Bendo gets points for an obscure Gattica reference, lol.

  7. Thom says:

    Well atleast he admits it. It’s extremely hard to dislike the guy other than the fact that he’s a little annoying with the religious stuff.

  8. 123 says:

    tbh i think he steals rounds/fights by jumping around like a prick lol.. he did it with Edgar & Melendez.

  9. Slim Charles says:

    word; you heard it! BJ Penn is still the greatest lightweight ever! Got the title by stoppage and defended it three times with stoppages!

  10. 757 says:

    Nobody should ever get on other guys like GSP, Fe et. about not finishing. This dude steals rounds with his theatrical acts . I love how some sit there ans say it’s ok for him but the same people get on the other guys. Stop bullshitting he steals fights and doesn’t finish fights …..period
