Poll Results | Who Takes it this weekend, Frankie Edgar or Benson Henderson?


We took to the polls once again this week to see who the fan favorite is leading up to tomorrow night’s main event between UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and number one contender Benson Henderson.

Surprisingly enough, despite his dominance over the past several years, Frankie Edgar is still being overlooked by MMA fans.

You guys chose, in a decently lopsided polling, Ben Henderson as your new UFC lightweight champion once tomorrow night’s pay-per-view event concludes.

After 3,504 votes, 59.8% (2,097 votes) of you chose Benson Henderson as tomorrow night’s winner and 40.2% 1,407 votes) decided to go with the champ.

As always thank you for participating in our poll, we will get another one up next week!

UFC 144 is set to go down tomorrow night live from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. As of current date, the event is expected to be headlined by a lightweight title fight between champion Frankie Edgar and challenger Benson Henderson. The event marks the UFC’s first ever return to Japan since UFC 29 in 2000.

    as an undersized wrestler i feel frainkes pain as being the underdog so much i wasnt seeded in a 24-man toruney and had 2cd seed in first round i went on and beat him and ended up taking third after i beat the 2cd seed a second time so i will be rooting frankie all the way i think he can take it

  2. hahahanninen says:

    Frankie’s going to surprise everyone…. once again…

  3. danielrchargers says:

    F.E all the way.

  4. Ryan M says:

    Frankie isn’t a dog though. He’s a favourite to win. GET YOUR BETS DOWN NOW (if that’s how you feel).

  5. Justen says:

    Want Benson to win, but I think Frankie’s gunna win a dec.

  6. Dummyman says:

    I am amazed that people are still betting against Edgar. I won’t be surprised if Edgar scores the KO or simply grinds out a unanimous decision.

  7. Ronnin says:

    FE all the way!!!

  8. Kalez says:

    This is a replay of Eddie Alvarez[Edgar] Vs. Michael Chandler[Bendo]. Bendo is too strong and fit for Frankie.

  9. Adrian Williamson says:

    As much as I love Benson and think the man is a supreme athlete and incredible fighter I think Frankie will take this one.People said the same exact thing about Gray Maynard against Frankie, that he was to strong for him,that he was going to “Bully” him, well we all saw what happened in their last fight. Frankie has the game plan to beat bigger,stronger guys as he is probably one of the (if not the smallest lightweight) in the division.His boxing technique and footwork makes him very dangerous against anyone and he has the wrestling to hang with bigger, more muscular fighters,such as Benson. Plus the heart of Frankie is the best in the UFC, the guy does not give up………..don’t think so ask Gray Maynard he’ll tell ya a little something about it………..but on that note neither does Benson.He is very resilient, and probably has the best submission defense in the game. I see the fight being very fast paced with lots of trading shots, similar to the Guida-Henderson fight. Only thing is Frankie will be landing more shots against Benson and will “Smooth” out a decision.

    Frankie Edgar UD 49-46/49-46/48-47.

    • Scotty says:

      Maynard has a shitty stand up game! He had Frankie beat over and over but didn’t know how utilize the stand up game to finish it! One hard punch then he didn’t know what to do afterwards.. Henderson is much better than Maynard in standing, better submission game, and better overall skills.. I think he is going to take to Edgar and beat him!

  10. Koshchek Loves Sucking Cock says:

    Benson by sub. He won’t make the same mistakes as Maynard and keep going for the K.O. once he has Edgar hurt. He will hurt him and then sub him with most likely a guillotine. Mark my words for they are the truth.

  11. your mom says:

    I know Frankie has a ton of heart and it is hard to defeat that part of him but henderson is a different breed compared to Maynard. I see Henderson taking it in the second. Good luck to both fighters though.

  12. Chartmonster says:

    Benson all da way mutherfkrs!

  13. GET RID OF FITCH says:

    If Bendo can chase frankie down he will win

  14. Dezz Nutz says:

    I’m with most of you guys here Bendo is going to take it. Franky has been just barley pulling out the win in his last couple fights and his luck is over. Bendo has fought fast guys like him before he knows what he is up against. He knows how to finish him if he sees the chance. If Franky is dumb enough to try to take him down he will end up with a knee to the face. He is not going to be use to the hard leg kicks. If Franky takes this its going to be a Diaz vs Condit win. While still a win he needs a real win after fighting 2 people twice back to back to show that hes a champ and not just a little bit better than the competition. At the end of the day I just want to see a good fight!!

  15. all for show says:

    Benson got this, Frankie wants to lose, it will show in the third.
