UFC Video: First Fight Between Anthony Pettis and Benson Henderson

Tonight at UFC 164, the main event is a rematch between UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson facing off with Anthony Pettis. These two squared off at the final WEC event, WEC 53 in December of 2010.

It was a very close fight going into the fifth and final round, with Pettis landing the “Showtime Kick” late in the round to secure the victory. Since then Henderson has gone undefeated in the UFC in seven fights and became the lightweight in February of last year defeating Frankie Edgar.

Pettis has gone 3-1 in his UFC run, winning his last three fights.
