Benson Henderson defends style, lack of finishes

Friday, August 30, 2013

Benson Henderson is a perfect 7-0 inside the UFC octagon and has defended his UFC title three times, but has yet to finish an opponent, having won all seven of his UFC bouts by decision. Fans and media have criticized him for not finishing fights, however according to him at least, winning is the only thing that matters:

“If a guy walks into the cage and slips on a banana peel and I get a win, I’ll take the win,” Henderson said on Thursday.

“What it all boils down to is getting your hand raised. Whether you do it impressively, emphatically, whether you do it by split decision or whatever the case may be,” he said.

I’m always after beating the guy up,” Henderson continued. “I always want to beat the guy up. I don’t care about judges or decisions or this or that. I just want to go out there and beat the guy up.”
