MMA NEWS | Benson Henderson Just Got Submitted In Grappling Tournament (Video)

UFC lightweight champion, Benson Henderson, wasted little time getting back into competition following his UFC 144 title win over Frankie Edgar.

In this video we see Benson competing against Daniel Grippaudo at the 7th Arizona International Open in Phoenix, Arizona. Benson has never been submitted in an MMA match and while BJJ is vastly different than cage fighting, this video still makes a good conversation piece.

  2. lex walker says:

  3. yeeaahhh, send edgar to feather via smash!!

  4. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Can’t win them all. Why did they stand up the first time?

  5. Jay Unidos says:

    I was just about to post this. You’re fast Pedro! It would be awesome to see BJ Penn competing in BJJ again, just saying.

  6. Jason B says:

    I hate Gi Jiu-jitsu. So different from no gi, and 100 times more frustrating. I already hate people grabbing my clothes from wrestling practice when any time it happens its considered cheating. But then to go into a sport where its not only legal but encouraged was way to anger inducing for me. No gi rocks though. LOVE IT! haha. I’m sure Bendo is much better without the Gi.

      i feel u, and it is competition and all, but none the less, it is supposed to somewhat emulate real life scenarios, i mean it is how these arts developed. it seems gi could prove very useful, when compared to no gi in the actual event that u do have to defend urself in the street… but yea its competition i kno

  7. Shiny says:

    Doesn’t mean anything Elite grappling is different then Elite fighting everyone learns from a loss anyways props to the other guy sick arm bar

  8. Big J says:

    LOl, did you see the ref pulling the other two guys, on the other mat?

  9. guamy says:

    i enjoy JJ with the GI alot more. its way more technical with the diffrent grips and such.

  10. will says:

    That was pretty lame

  11. Bruno says:

    He is just a brownbelt in a world where there are thousands of black belts +

  12. jrog says:

    bet it is a while befor he gets arm bared again. Nice armbar Daniel

  13. Duane says:

    I bet dude thinks he should do MMA now, lol nice ABar tho.

  14. TRUTH BE TOLD?!?! NOPE says:

    oh arm bar is his weakness cant wait to see it used on him in the ufc

  15. lex walker says:

    I dnt get why he kept turning to tha side when he was in the guys guard its like he was asking to get his back took he wasn’t even trying to break his guard it seemed…..can anybody shed some light on this?

  16. MajorTom says:

    I find it very impressive that Ben can be competitive in gi and no gi. Shows he’s got patience and works technique.

    I don’t know anything about his opponent, but Ben trains in wrestling, jiu jitsu, and striking arts. He’s got to divide his attention between a bunch of different training. This other guy, could just be a jiu jitsu guy who’s spent the same amount of time Ben has spent training BJJ but focusing solely on bjj. Makes a world of difference.

  17. jo says:

    seems more like a practice session but anywho, it’s good stuff…

  18. OAHUMOFOS says:

    this is just grappling guys, if the two were in the cage it would be a different outcome. Bendo would have GnP the guy to KTFO

  19. Dude says:

    Idk gi striker bj penn would go to brazil and compete and win! But kudos to bendo, it does make you better to compete in a specific discipline

  20. Juggy says:

    The pass was called the Wilson Hays pass to side controll..

  21. don says:

    i would agree that this means nothing. there is nothing on the line. if there was, i’m sure there would have been more resistance. he appears to be a smart enough person to understand that a tournament is not going to pay his mortgage/rent so why risk injury and not tap.

  22. Tsimanga says:

    “Benson has never been submitted in an MMA match”

    Ummm… looks to me like he did in 2007. In fact I recently watched it on youtube. How hard is it to search that fact? Lazy written article.

  23. jew jitsu says:

    Ya Pedro u uneducated

  24. I competed In that tournament

  25. Jason says:

    ben has lost by sub before, his first loss was sub

  26. WILL says:

    i like hendersons sportsmanship how he can talk to his opponent and share a laugh about the match afterwards

  27. Patrick aka jitzFANatik808 says:

    So you’re telling me he competed with a broken hand and a sprained foot? I have to question when exactly this match took place because the commission reported his injuries and I doubt he’s supposed to make physical contact for a certain time. Really suspect, Just Saying.

  28. Steven R. Stewart says:

    It’s different with the gi, man. Whole other ballgame.

  29. Patrick aka jitzFANatik808 says:

    Dude, hurt is hurt

  30. Dr0w83 says:

    This doesn’t “mean” anything he was submitted in a grappling tournament it happens to the best, their are videos of Fedor in his prime getting submitted in sambo matches, but he was still undefeated in MMA.

  31. Xaninho says:

    Poor guy clearly has Alzheimer, he’s not all there anymore.
