Ben Henderson Moves Up to 170, Will Face Thatch at Fight Night 60

February 1, 2015 12:50 am by Jonathan Kirschner


Ben Henderson is channeling his inner Donald Cerrone by stepping up to save “UFC Fight Night 60”!

“Wonderboy” Stephen Thompson was forced out of the bout after suffering an injury and Thatch was in jeopardy of getting bumped off the card. After UFC 183 wrapped up, it was confirmed that Ben Henderson would be moving up to welterweight to face Brandon Thatch in the main-event of Fight Night 60.

White mentioned during the UFC 183 Post Fight Press Conference that Henderson has been bothering UFC Matchmaker Joe Silva for a fight at 170 and he finally got his wish. Do you think Thatch has what it takes to get the job done against Henderson, or will Henderson walk out with his hands raised? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
