UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson (18-2) defends his belt for the fourth time in what promises to be an epic rematch against hometown hero Anthony Pettis (14-2), the last man to defeat him. The two fighters will battle in the main event at UFC 164 on Saturday in Milwaukee, Wis.
Back in 2010, Henderson, from Glendale, Ariz., lost his World Extreme Cagefighting title when Pettis, from Milwaukee, Wis., delivered his famous “Showtime Kick” during the fifth and deciding round. That bout is widely considered to be one of the greatest fights in recent MMA history.
“I want to get that Pettis stain off my soul,” said Henderson.
Top contender Anthony Pettis plans to take the title he feels is rightfully his.
“I’m definitely looking forward to it,” said Pettis. “I want to get my hands on him.”
Also on the card, a heavyweight dream fight becomes a reality when Frank Mir (16-7) battles Josh "The Warmaster" Barnett (32-6-0). Fights rounding out the main event include: featherweights Chad Mendes (14-1) vs. Clay Guida (30-10); heavyweights Ben Rothwell (32-9) vs. Brandon Vera (12-6), and featherweights Erik Koch (13-2) vs. Dustin Poirier (13-3).
