    Former UFC 155 champ Benson Henderson pumps brakes on planned welterweight move

    Despite previous statements to the contrary, former UFC champ Benson Henderson won

    I think guys like Michael Johnson could beat Ben. And to name another random lightweight off the top of my head... Uhhhh

    All Iaquinta could probably outbox him

    Benson doesn't beat anyone. Jesus does.

    Let's just say, Alvarez dodged a bullet and Cowboy is about to get turned inside out.

    I always felt these questions were a bit strange, because anyone can beat anyone on a certain night. I think Bendo beats Pettis 4/10 times, and there is no one he can't beat outright.

    kind of a weird poll, can't really vote for one specific fighter because he most likely beats a lot of them. (or already has)

    It's not like it was a flash KO or something.

    Why, because he lost to him once? Just like Cain couldn't beat JDS because he lost to him the first time? Bendo beats RDA at least 7/10 times. That fight was merely one of those three were RDA wins with a hail marry attack.

    Big John fell on the fighters and stopped the fight out of embarrassment, we all saw it.

    Maybe. I thought the stoppage was early.

    Early stoppage. Benson even said it was and he is so humble. You cannot say without a doubt that Benson was out of the fight, therefore it was an early stoppage.

    Put my votes in, I think Bendo has stopped evolving though and is having his game figured out.

    I still think he is the best 155er, but Pettis is his kryptonite.

    Pettis, Khabib, Melendez & Thompson are the only ones he couldn't beat at Lightweight right now. I think he'd beat RDA in a rematch and I think he'll beat Cowboy a week from now, although I wouldn't mind seeing Cowboy win.

    I only see Barboza, Khabib and of course Pettis beating him.

    I think he beats RDA in a rematch. Alvarez might have a chance if he worked on his kicks.

    I know, just like when people picked GSP to win GSP/Serra 2. Soooo silly.
