Bendo just defended his belt faster than it took my functional alcoholic neighbor to fall up the stairs on a Thursday night (miss you neighbor). After the fight, Ben Henderson thanked Jesus for making everything possible, a statement that atheist Joe Silva silently chuckled over.
Now let’s get to the controversial decision, a decision which I thought wasn’t that controversial at all. I thought Ben grabbed the first, fourth, and fifth. The Fight Professor Stephen Quadros thought Frankie Edgar may have squeaked out the win. I’m sure you had your own opinion on who grabbed the win, but at the end of the day our beliefs are inferior. It doesn’t matter what we believe — the judges hold the fate of an entire sport, and tonight at UFC 150, Ben Henderson grabbed the split decision.
We’re sure the smack talk between Nate Diaz and Ben Henderson will start in the immediate future, so we plan on doing some ridiculously cool 209 feature on MiddleEasy. Granted, a large portion of you will accuse us of being bias and cry about the exclusive content we bring you. Damn, you guys can’t have anything nice.
Props to Ben Henderson on a dominating performance against Frankie Edgar, and in a perfect universe we will see Edgar drop down to 145 lbs to take on Jose Aldo. Fingers crossed, folks.
