Tyron Woodley and Ben Henderson tried out. Now don't you think both those guys would have walked through all the British fighters? Seriously Woodley v. Wilks would have been a joke, same with Henderson v. Pearson.
That theory makes sense, because either Bendo and/or Woodley would've made them all look silly. Yeah, maybe Shelby or Silva had other plans for Benson, but I would've loved to have seen Henderson walk through people. Then again he would have potentially lost all those accomplishments that were acquired in the WEC.

Good point. How many of those auditions are filled with fighters claiming to be the next ultimate fighter and the next UFC champion? Too many to be counted.
