    As fucking ridiculous as this may seem, it's quite a possibility. You can bet your ass that Dana doesn't like Bendo for those fights against Thomson, Melendez, Edgar, and derailing Khabilov. If Bendo loses tomorrow do you think he'll be cut, with Dana saying stuff like "he's on the downside of his career"?

    He's in similar situations like Fitch, Shields and Okami, where he'll never be a draw, and never be champ, but good enough to derail contenders

    Obviously not.

    He's at least a few losses away from that, and that's if they're all in a row.

    No. If they won't cut someone like Phil Davis, they aren't cutting Benson Henderson.

    I'm afraid if he loses he will be gatekeeper status.

    Assuming quite a lot here.
    And isn't this is pretty much the same thing people thought about Fitch, Okami, Shields?

    No way. It isn't quite possible.

    It isn't like the guys you mention at all. Ben Henderson was the fucking champion with a few defenses and main evented a lot of fights.

    I'd also say he was more of a draw than those guys but that is just a guess.

    Nah.
    But they should for sure cut Hendricks if he loses his next fight
    He'll be 1-3 in his last 4, 0-4 by my counting :D

    Not even a chance. He has only lost to Top 5 fighters so far. He would have to start losing to fighters much further down the rankings before they would even have a thought.

    No fucking way.

    People hate Bendo for his Jesus talk and his close decision wins, but the guy is as entertaining as they come. Bendo kicks ass and puts on a show. No way they cut him.

    Benson could lose his next 3 fights and they wouldn't cut him.

    I won't be shocked if Cerrone wins but I believe Benson will earn the decision in a close much needed 5 round fight.

    Has anyone ever been cut from the UFC right after headlining in a co-main event?

    Benson was a champion that defended his belt multiple times so that alone separates him from Fitch, Okami, and Shields. Not to mention he's had a lot of exposure on the free cards so casuals know his name.
