Benson Henderson (19-2) defends his UFC lightweight title this coming weekend, when he takes on Anthony Pettis (16-2) at UFC 164 on Saturday, August 31st, 2013, at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The bout is certainly an interesting one as it’s actually a rematch from December, 2010, where the pair met in the main event of the WEC’s final show, at WEC 53. It was Pettis who came out on top that night, defeating Henderson via unanimous decision, taking his WEC lightweight title in the process. The fight was an exciting back and forth affair that later won ‘Fight of the Night’ and ‘Fight of the Year’ awards.
In case you missed the first bout between the two, you’re in for a treat as you can check it out in the video below. You don’t want to miss the famous “Showtime kick!”
