Ben Henderson successfully defended his UFC lightweight title against Gilbert Melendez in the UFC on FOX 7 main event. It took all five rounds, and when the dust settled, Henderson came away with the split decision. So, from that, you can see it wasn’t easy — Melendez is a tough competitor, who hit Henderson with some hard strikes; however, Henderson’s relentless pace and leg kicks seemed to be the deciding factors. We’ll have to see who gets the next shot — will it be Henderson’s WEC rival, Anthony Pettis?
