Benson Henderson Wants All The Contenders During Lengthy Pettis Absence

Former UFC lightweight champion, Ben ‘Smooth’ Henderson is ready for another shot at the belt, but in the interim he’s ready to take on all-comers.

Benson Henderson on if he felt pressure taking a fight with a fighter ranked lower than him: “I never felt it.  I understood it was a low reward, high risk fight, with him ranked lower than I am. But that’s who I am, I’m a fighter. I fight. If someone says they want to fight me, I have no problem with that.”

Henderson on if he was happy getting his first finish in the UFC: 
“A finish is a finish. I don’t care about the finishes. It’s cool to get the submission, but I’m after good performances. That wasn’t too bad a performance.”


Henderson on who he wants to fight next: “I want to stay busy. I’m a fighter. That’s what I do. All those guys who would fight for the belt, send them to me instead. I’ll take them on.”
