VIDEO | Benson Henderson Doesn't See A Challenge In Edgar Rematch | UFC NEWS

UFC Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson is ready to take on former champion Frankie Edgar again at UFC 150 in Denver, Colo., on Aug. 11, 2012 after beating Edgar in a five-round decision when they last faced at UFC 144 in Saitama, Japan, on Feb. 26, 2012.

“How tough of a situation is this because basically you have to beat Frankie Edgar 2x to capture his belt?”  asks Ron Kruck, Inside MMA

Ben Henderson:

“I don’t think it would be too difficult.  I had a pretty fun time the 1st time we danced.  I anticipate having a fun time also again the 2nd time we dance.  Frankie has a good record in his rematches.  My record in rematches are pretty good also – if they know that as well – I’m not too shabby in rematches….”

Kruck asked, “Let’s say that you lose to Edgar but you put on a great show.  Do you then deserve a rematch?”

Ben Henderson:

 “I’m not one of those guys to proclaim ‘Hey, I want this or I want that’ I don’t want to be one of those prima donna wide receivers.  I’m the guy that goes out there and gets the job done.  Doesn’t complain and does his work.  I want to be like a Jerry Rice or a Larry Fitzgerald.  I don’t want to be the prima donna wide receiver always complaining and moaning ‘I need this or I need that.  I’m not gonna sign a contract until I get this.’  I just want to be one of those good guys that goes out there and gets the job done.”

Top contenders like Nate Diaz and Anthony Pettis  will be watching to see who will come out on top.

    i hope frankie punches the shit out of this arrogant cocky piece of shit for overlooking him, bendo beat him and i thought pretty convincingly in the first fight but i hope for nothing more than him to get knocked the fuck out for taking frankie so lightly

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      Sounds like you’re pissed that someone insulted your little girlfriend. Cocky? Get a clue. Dude is speaking the truth.

    • stfu todd says:

      Are you that fucking stupid to think that Benson is taking Frankie lightly? He even says himself that Frankie comes back stronger and better in each of the rematches. He also says that he will keep an open mind as to what Frankie will bring to the next fight and that he will prepare for all possibilities. Benson is simply portraying confidence in his own abilities as all fighters should have.You probably didn’t even watch the entire video, but I don’t blame you, the headline is pretty misleading.

    • omgaghost says:

      Another etard who doesn’t actually watch the video, just talks trash from underneath the ball sack of his favorite fighter.

      • todd says:

        i read the article so get fucked you idiot, he is cocky and arrogant and i would love nothing more than to see his head get caved in, im not even a big fan of frankie i just hate the attitude and personality of henderson

    • Xaninho says:

      Bendo is right. Edgar cried himself into a rematch. Bendo won’t lose, but if he would, he should get the rubber match.

  2. Robby says:

    i can’t wait to see frankie dominate this faggot he’s way to cocky and deserves to get his ass kicked; just because you beat him before doesn’t mean you can beat him again look at gray maynard for example he beat frankie the first time, tied him the second time, and got knocked out the third time edgar learns from his mistakes and that’s why he had the belt for so long.

  3. Chris says:

    lmfao come on does anybody think Edgar is going to win for real? and we all know Edgar is one of those prima donnas he was mentioning… wahhhh wahh i got more takedowns booo hooo stop points fighting and you dont have to cry after the decision. Either way Diaz or Pettis are going to whoop either one of these guys and anybody who watches MMA for real knows that

  4. Drew says:

    Diaz can beat anyone at 155 besides bj and maybe Gilbert but I’m sure diaz could get the job done against Gilbert that non stop gas tank is dangerous and that’s not even talking about his skillz

    • The Outlaw says:

      Bj is fucking washed up little Diaz would do the same shit his older brother did moron.. Who retires after an ass beatin?? Oh yeah bj penn and now he’s asking for a hungry kid?? rory is gonna smash him. He’s out of the game now man. Face it.

  5. Irie nation says:

    Benson via 2nd rd submission…put that faggot Guido to sleep

  6. the truth says:

    frankie edgar is in good shape…that is all !

  7. maurice says:

    um frankie only has the belt a long time cause he’s only fought 2 ppl in 2 years. edgar vs benson was actually closer then ppl think. but benson still won. both guys landed good shots, but benson shots were always heavier and caused serious facial damage. edgar shouldnt even had been fighting benson. if edgar keeps going to the way he’s goin he’s goin to be become a vegetable.

  8. Punisher says:

    Why was this rematch even made?!? Tired of this rematch BS! Rematches should be for draws or maybe a controversial split decision, that’s it! Bendo clearly one the first fight and will do so even more clearly this time. Then let’s get Diaz in the mix.

  9. CoCiO says:

    I don’t see the fight going any different lol..Ben has his number, good in rematches or not he isn’t going to win this one.

  10. slacker says:

    Upkick was huge turning point. A more cautious Edgar will break him down and win. Henderson is going to get bloodied up this time.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Yup +1, One difference Frankie will take that leg that he caught all night and take him down.

    • Xaninho says:

      No he won’t.

      And Edgar didn’t ‘catch’ the kicks, he just let Bendo kick the shit out of his ribs and then held on to his leg. Catching a kick is something different.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        you wrote:

        “No he won’t.

        And Edgar didn’t ‘catch’ the kicks, he just let Bendo kick the shit out of his ribs and then held on to his leg. Catching a kick is something different.”

        So catching a kick is NOT catching a kick, huh????….nuff said

        • Xaninho says:

          what are you talking about? nuff said? like you said something intelligent? read it again, and this time read it slowly so you’ll understand what you’re reading.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          No comprende ,mi amigo. catching a kick is catching a kick. No?? Done….

        • Xaninho says:

          You’re maybe done, but I’m not.

          I’ll elaborate since you’re merely a wrestler with no striking knowledge 😉

          Catching a kick means grabbing the leg mid air, before it hits you.

          What Edgar did was just letting Bendo kick the shit out of his ribs and THEN grab the leg. That is not catching a kick…comprende?

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Just to set the record straight, I have been boxing longer than I have wrestled and I’ve wrestled forever….
          Oh and catching a kick is catching a kick….whoTF catches a kick in “mid-air” lmfao…..and you know I’m right…..

        • Xaninho says:

          In your world Belfort caught Silva’s kick too I guess….

          What you say is wrong….and you know it.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Huh??? Now X you’re just not making sense….If it’ll make you feel better, I hope Holland kicks ass in Euro soccer!! but you eres muy loco aqui……

        • Xaninho says:

          According to your logic being kicked in the ribcage is catching the kick.

          So according to your logic Belfort caught that frontkick with his chin as well.

          You gotta try to keep up with me bro. It’s no fun if I have to explain every comment.

          Oh and about the crazy stuff, that’s true. At least according to some people who saw me breaking a guys neck while I was incarcerated.

  11. B-rad says:

    bendo is gonna roll in the 2nd fight just like he did in the first, he knows he has edgars number, hes too big and athletic for frankie.. anthony pettis will give bendo another tough fight but i think diaz would go down

  12. Mike says:

    I hope one of em puts the other one down for real. I like em’ both, but if Benson is right, the first fight was really kind of a “dance”. Minus that upkick, was a boring-ass fight. Hopefully we get some commitment this rematch.

  13. Robby an Todd are idiots says:

    Benson will easily win again an like I said before Edgar is done!

  14. TheGlassEye says:

    Anyone who has watched Benson for more than one fight should see this is one humble guy. If you walked up to him while he was eating and asked him for half of it he’d give you his plate. No flash, no talk, just plain ole hard work and talent. He trains hard and fights harder. He has a disarming smile and a great attitude. Check out his twitter, it’s no act. So this article “Headline” could not be more off base. So buy your tickets cause Benson is bringing it! Win, lose or draw he’s a class act.
