Wow that was over quick. Anthony Pettis has defeated Benson Henderson at UFC164 by tapout at 4:31 of the first round due to an arm bar to win the Lightweight Championship.
Early on in the round, Henderson was working over Henderson against the fence with kicks to the calves. Halfway through the round, Pettis managed to break free. While standing up, Pettis delivered 4 straight...
Pettis is looking lean and ready for tomorrow’s much anticipated rematch with Ben Henderson. Is it possible a local Milwaukee tanning salon may have decided to fork over the cash to sponsor Showtime???

Showtime shows up for some pre fight chores
Anthony Pettis’ father passed away back in 2003, when Showtime was just 16 years old. I’m sure he’s looking down from above and is very proud of his son.

I hold the strap now T, who wants some?Anthony “Showtime” Pettis defeated Benson Henderson last night by verbal submission in the first round to become the UFC lightweight champion. Props to Pettis for beating up a tough champion in Hederson, but I still wanna see the Jose Aldo fight that was supposed to happen a couple months ago.-TOUFC 164 Weigh-In: Main Event StaredownJoe...
It's been a year and a half since Chad Mendes' worst day as a pro, 18 months to digest what went wrong, correct it, then implement change. The results so far have been promising. Formerly a takedown-heavy grinder, Mendes -- under the watchful eye of new coach Duane "Bang" Ludwig -- has transformed himself into a powerful striker, with three straight sub two-minute...
The only thing more subjective than the divisional UFC Fighter Rankings is the pound-for-pound UFC Fighter Rankings. Unless athletes hop divisions or collide at catchweights to face each other, how can one possibly determine which heavier/lighter fighter is better than the other?
Nonetheless, the discussion came up Saturday night after Anthony Pettis (pictured) submitted Benson Henderson...
New champ! New champ! Talk about DOMINATION! Anthony Pettis strutted into his hometown arena and decimated Ben Henderson with body kicks until Ben was forced to take him down. From his guard, Pettis ended up submitting Bendo verbally with an armbar in one of the most lopsided fights of Bendo’s life. Holy ****! After, Pettis called out Jose Aldo, which I really want to see at 155...
Despite owning a perfect 7-0 UFC record, which included three straight title defenses, prior to entering Saturday’s rematch with Anthony Pettis, now-former lightweight king Benson Henderson (pictured) will have to wait his turn before sniffing another championship affair.
And if Pettis’ reign atop the 155-pound division is an extended one, Henderson’s wait will only be that...
UFC 164 went down this Saturday night from the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin headlined by the rematch almost three years in the making between Benson Henderson and Anthony Pettis. Entering the fight the common consensus was that Pettis needed a knockout to take the title from Henderson who is the master of winning decisions. It didn't work out that way. Henderson...
UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson stopped by to talk with UFC Tonight's Ariel Helwani after the UFC 164 weigh in.
Bendo was his usual calm, stoic self but made an interesting remark about actually enjoying being behind enemy lines.
Apparently, he enjoys the feeling of being boo'd by an entire city of people that are cheering on his opponent, Anthony Pettis.
Duane “Bang” Ludwig seems pretty happy with how things are going, and understandably so. Since becoming the head coach at Team Alpha Male his fighters are undefeated in their last 10 fights. This week Ludwig’s top featherweight student Chad Mendes looks to keep the streak alive as he takes on veteran Clay Guida in Milwaukee. I have a feeling he will have an even bigger smile...
I predicted a Showtime victory, but I never saw it ending like this. It was a delayed reaction on my part when Henderson verbally tapped. Apparently, Pettis heard Benson’s arm ‘pop’ and then he heard Hendo say ‘tap-tap-tap’. I wish we could of seen a 5 round war, but Showtime deserved it. Give him Aldo next!! Thanks to the GIF master ZombieProphet for the goods...
