UFC 164: Henderson vs. Pettis hits our screens this weekend August 31st from the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The main event of the night will feature Benson “Smooth” Henderson vs. Anthony “Showtime” Pettis in a long awaited rematch dating back to 2010 at WEC 53, the last event of the WEC promotion. It was an exciting first match with a highlight reel finish from “Showtime” to capture the WEC Lightweight title and many MMA fans dubbed it fight of the year. Check out the countdown to the event below.
I will be looking forward to seeing another competitive fight between 2 of the best Lightweights in the world. Skill wise they match up pretty even with Henderson having the better ground game in my opinion. However I predict Henderson will walk away with the win this time though as I see him as the more mature and experienced fighter who has defended the UFC Lightweight title multiple times.
