Rankings Update: Benson Henderson down three spots in p4p

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Generally if you win you either maintain or move up in your rankings. That is true in divisional, but a performance that is sub-par can and often does affect your pound for pound rankings, as was the case with Benson Henderson.
