After three years of wait, Ben Henderson will finally have another chance of avenging his loss to Anthony Pettis in their WEC lightweight championship in 2010. However, there's also a chance he could succumb again to Pettis along with the UFC lightweight title he already defended three times.
Ben Henderson vs. Anthony Pettis
Henderson (19-2) will be staking the UFC lightweight championship belt against the guy that had already conquered him inside the cage. Pettis, also former WEC lightweight champion, has been impressive in his last three UFC fights, which includes sensational knockout victories against Joe Lauzon and Donald Cerrone.
Meanwhile, Henderson is coming off a hard-earned split decision win over Gilbert Mendez in April. Ranked no.1 lightweight in the world, Henderson enters his second showdown with Pettis as the favourite, though everything could happen in Saturday's grudge match.
