In this weekend’s UFC Main Event in Tulsa, Oklahoma, former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson takes on top contender Rafael dos Anjos.
It may be easy, for fight fans, to count the Brazilian fighter out, he tells FOX Sports that Benson has holes in his game.
“He’s a tough guy, a former champion, and I think this will be a really big step towards the belt. The belt will come, but I don’t want to think too much about it. I really want my title shot, but I’m not stuck in this thinking. I just want to fight and be exciting and that will come naturally.”
“A big win over Benson Henderson Saturday night and I will fight for the title I’m sure.”
“I think I’m stronger than him. I’ve been in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world a long time, I’ve been training since I was nine years old and I earned my black belt when I was 20 years old so I’ve had nine years as a black belt. I see a lot of holes in his game and I’m going to take advantage of that.”
