Benson Henderson retains title with dominant decision over Diaz

Sunday, December 09, 2012

In capturing the UFC lightweight championship and then defending the belt months later, Benson Henderson still could not convince all of the MMA world he was worthy of strapping the gold around his waist.

The doubters will be fewer after Saturday night, after Henderson punched, kicked and wrestled his way to a dominant decision win over Nate Diaz in the main event of UFC on FOX 5 from the Key Arena in Seattle.

The judges scored it in his favor 50-43, 50-45, 50-45.

Henderson authored nearly all of the fights best offensive moments.
