UFC Welterweight Division Fight

Benson “Smooth” Henderson (22-5-0) vs. Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal (29-9-0)

Henderson has been undefeated since moving up to the welterweight division, having defeated Brandon Thatch at UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Thatch. Masvidal is another fighter who is undefeated at welterweight, with his win coming over Cezar Ferreira at the UFC Ultimate Fighter 21 Finale. Henderson is also a former UFC Lightweight Champion, he successfully defended the belt three times before losing it to Anthony Pettis at UFC 164. Masvidal has won six of eight since coming to the UFC in 2013, with three of those wins coming over TUF alumni. Masvidal will keep the fight interesting for awhile using his boxing, but Henderson’s constant takedowns will eventually hamper Masvidal on route to a decision win.
