“All of them. Line ’em up. One after another. Every single one of them. You better believe it. One after another. I want to defeat every single 155-pound guy on the roster of the UFC. I wanna beat all of them… I’d take them all on one night. Let’s do it. I’m ready to go. I really don’t care. It doesn’t matter to me. The fan in me, I definitely understand where Frankie’s coming from, having to give two rematches. I don’t wanna be that guy who they say, ‘Oh, Henderson was afraid to give a rematch when he (Edgar) had to give two rematches.’ I don’t wanna be the champ who, that’s talked about or that’s said.”

Newly crowned UFC lightweight champion, Benson Henderson, talks to the guys over at Inside MMA on HDNet last night about what’s next for him.

“Anthony Pettis, he has his statement. He has a win over Jeremy Stephens. A split decision. One quality win over Joe Lauzon, who’s a tough opponent. But, other than that, not a whole lot of depth in his UFC career. But whoever it is, it doesn’t matter. I’ll take ’em all on.”

“I feel pretty good. I’m completely healthy. Whenever I talk to the Commission doctors and the UFC doctors, I tell them every little thing. I get a bruised pinky, I hurt my toe, my ear hurts, I tell the doctors all that, just in case if afterwards, a couple days later, it is injured an still does hurt, I’m covered. My knuckles were pretty sore, but after a couple days, the soreness went away. They’re all good.

I’ like to have a little bit longer in between my fights. I just started fighting in 2006. I’m still pretty young in this game. I have a world of growing to do in my boxing, a world of growing to do in my jiu-jitsu, my wrestling an in MMA in general. I’d like to have time in between my fights so I can actually get better, so that I’m a better fighter next time I step into the cage. I wanna switch from training camp to training camp to training camp. I wanna improve as a fighter. I’d like to have a little more time in between, but when you have the belt, you gotta do what you gotta do.”
