    Jesus....that's a step down in competition.

    Not a shot at Khabilov but Henderson just beat Josh Thomson.

    WTF? Why didn't they have Henderson fight Khabib? This is a trap fight for Henderson I think Khabilov is extremely underrated. He hasn't lost in the UFC yet and only loss of his career is a split decision. If any one remembers, he was billed as "the lightweight Fedor" when he first signed.

    Yeah , I am glad Bendo is willing to fight anyone and good on him but this is as well a slap in the face.
    He is the ex champ and they could not match him up with the likes of Cerrone or Diaz or anyone of that caliber that would put him a touch closer to getting good a shot again?
    Regardless, always down to watch Bendo fight so, WAR Bendo!

    The problem for Bendo right now is that he's at least a couple wins away from a title shot best case scenario. They aren't going to throw him again with Pettis anytime soon. His run of very close fights starting with Edgar and right up to Thomson doesn't help his cause either.

    I'm sure at this point the UFC doesn't want him derailing another potential contender like he did with Thomson and especially in the manner that he got the decision.
