Prior to their title rematch last week, conventional may have held that Benson Henderson had improved more than challenger Anthony Pettis had in the several years since their last meeting. Henderson had faced the tougher competition, gone unbeaten in the UFC and was riding high on confidence and accomplishment.
Pettis was coming off of a knee injury, fighting on relatively short notice and, well, he was flashy but would likely get out wrestled and out pointed. Of course, Pettis went on to submit Henderson in short and shocking order and is now the new UFC lightweight champion.
