    Looks like its the next step in Benson's welterweight adventures

    Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up to stage its first-ever mixed martial arts (MMA) event in Seoul, South Korea, which is scheduled to go down on Nov. 28, 2015, inside Olympic Gymnastics Arena.

    And the promotion seems to have found its headlining act, as MMA Fighting reports that former Lightweight champion Ben Henderson is the frontrunner to take on heavy-hitting Thiago Alves in a Welterweight main event.

    I smell a Dennis Kang re-signing. Also, expect Akiyama on the card

    Benson's got this most likely by via submission, Alves has a history of being tapped.

    Damn that'll be a fun fight. Henderson by sub similar to the Thatch fight, except without the reach I think Bendo lands more on the feet.

    Bendo at 155 or 170. Alves isn't the same guy who KO'd Hughes and stepped in the same octagon with GSP. Bendo via sub most likely.

    Someone should make a Benson meme: 1-2 in last three fights, gets to headline big event.

    Seriously, possibly least deserving headliner ever.

    If we're going off straight-up records, I'm pretty sure Diaz, Edgar, Sonnen all have claims to that. But they could sell PPVs.

    Pretty sure that is a LW fight. Bendo will sub him for sure. Can't imagine how Alves will look after cutting to 155...probably Luter-like lol

    You make a good argument. Thing is, those guys have drawing power.
