Benson Henderson’s Goal Set On Beating Anderson Silva’s Record | UFC NEWS


“I’m going to continue to work hard to reach my goals. Anderson is now at 10 title defenses so my goal is to get 11. If he gets another title defense then I’ll have to set my goal even higher. Those are the goals I set and reaching that goal is not just about setting the record. Reaching that goal is about confirming I am the best fighter on the planet. I just want to be the best fighter on the planet. There have been plenty of fighters – who at the time were known as the best fighter on the planet – but they didn’t have a 10-title defense streak and didn’t have all the records. I feel at one time B.J. Penn was definitely the best fighter on the planet. Did he have a 10-fight win streak? No, he didn’t. Did he have an undefeated streak where he won 16 fights in a row? No, he didn’t. But at the same time, everyone knew and understood he was the best fighter in the world. I feel having that streak is my way of cementing the fact I am the best fighter on the planet. That is ultimately my goal. If it comes by winning a bunch of fights in a row and having an amazing win streak, then cool. I’ll take it. I guess I don’t really have to have that, but it is my ultimate goal. I want to be the best fighter I can be and be the best fighter on the planet.”

UFC lightweight champion, Benson Henderson, tells the Bleacher Report that his goals are simply to be the best fighter who has ever lived.

Can he do it?

    ffucking dope you don’t stand a chance against silva the odds to that are slim to none ddumbass gayson gayderson! HA!

    • Jiu Jitsu Misfit says:

      learn to read… He wasnt talking about fighting silva, he is saying he is going after his title defense streak.

      I think the only thing stupider than how MMA fights are judged is how stupid some of the fans are.
      Case and point Ronda Shite!

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        For a Misfit, you are pretty smart…..you should wrestle instead.

        hey kid grow up and make sence.

    • UFC 84 Forever says:

      You are truly foolish for posting that, don’t just read the headlines, actually just don’t bother posting again.

      Props to Benderson for his aspirations, who wouldn’t want to be the best of all time?

    • I Heard... says:

      …you are a transgender Robert Shite.

  2. Benson Henderson says:

    “And if I had a time machine I’d go back in time and kill Hitler and then kick Bruce Lee’s ass!”

  3. Brownlettuce says:

    The difference is, Silva finishes his opponents 95% of the time.

  4. GRT 3000 says:

    well, you’ll need to start by fighting Frankie again bud. you lost that second fight imo. doesn’t set you up for the GOAT status that Anderson has staked in cement.

  5. 123 says:

    Ben Henderson is a monster, if he started knocking people out & submitting them he would probably get a superfight with GSP & win in my opinion.

  6. confucius says:

    he doesnt finish much fights but if he looked like he did against Miller or Diaz in every single fight, then people wouldnt be saying shit. I wouldnt say anything about him not finishing fights if he looked like he did against those guys all the time. Completely smashed those two guys.

  7. Dhannie says:

    Well said…
