Josh Thomson will put his number one contender status on the line when he fights Benson Henderson at the UFC on FOX 10, and he'll do dealing with one of his worse training camps:
"I've gotta say it's probably been one of my worst camps I've ever had in my history of fighting. Just being honest," Thomson told FOX Sports ahead of his bout against Benson Henderson in Chicago. "It's been a rough camp, been a long camp.
"I think what happened was four weeks with (Anthony) Pettis then I took a week off because the fight was canceled and then I got the call to fight Benson (Henderson) so I thought, don't break the routine too much, jump back into camp and I think what happens when you have such a long camp it just starts dragging on and on and on. You're just not feeling it anymore. You're losing motivation, whatever the reason being. It's been a long, just distracted kind of camp, it's been really weird."
