One Comment to Benson Henderson vs. Josh Thomson: UFC on FOX 10 main event | UFC NEWS

  1. Josh Ruge says:

    What a joke of a main event, 2nd largest market in the country and your going to put 1 top 10 fighter on the whole card.

    Quit blaming piracy and various athletic commissions for the UFC’s recent problems, blame it on there own inept decision making skills like putting the Lightweight title fight 100 miles down the road in a small sized city (Milwaukee) then putting a tune up lightweight main event as our top fight in Chicago. Get real
