Maybe all that talk of Eddie Alvarez entering the UFC and signing a large contract helped Benson Henderson after all. The current UFC lightweight champion posted on Twitter late Friday night that he has signed a new deal with the UFC.

"New deal done w/Dana White, Lorenzo Fertitta and UFC, I'm a HAPPY man," Henderson wrote.

Henderson thanks his management team, including Malki Kawa, for "staying late on this (business)."

He signed the contract with an ink pad and a toothpick.

superCalo -  Rumour is Bendo will be getting six figure paydays, well deserved. Phone Post

Which is nothing compared to what he's making from sponsors. Everybody likes the guy, he doesn't really have any "haters". Some petty people cry a little when he says Jesus or God after a fight, but that's about it. Beating Nate down like that, with a toothpick in his mouth the whole time, is just cool. I don't think sponsors are worried about putting money behind him. They know he'll perform on fight night, and they know he's not going to get busted for rape or for crack (or for steroids). He made Rogan cry like a little girl when he won the title and kissed his mom in the audience.

Benson is just a good bet for everybody. Whatever the UFC is paying him, it's probably worth it to them at triple the price. And I bet sponsors are lining up to throw money at him (that's one reason the UFC contract is worth so much more for Eddie Alvarez).

CREamed_by_DongJ - It's obvious by his conditioning alone that he's one of the most professional athletes in the UFC, grats.

At the word "conditioning", I thought you were going to comment on his hair. His hair is fabulous.

I thought you where going to say his head training coach or someone else. Becoming UFC champion and attracting great numbers on FOX has more to do with big money sent his way than anything else.

haha i called it yesterday in the eddie alvarez thread. yesterday i wrote that dana was probably cringing in his skin when eddies terms came out to the public. i wrote the best part about getting it out in public was that when fedors terms came out , randy and tito ended up getting paid when the ufc dicktucked for underpaying them haha this is great. bendo wont be the last one im sure to get paid.

Doubt it... he's had 6 fights in the UFC already and just pulled 5.5 million viewers on fox.  He was due a new contract.  THe eddie news broke a few days ago... if that was the catalyst it would have taken a few weeks before he announced a new contract.

Depends if he's tapping into their market though with any specific endorsements. Just because they put you in the newspaper doesn't mean anything unless you can parlay that into some sort of nice cash in that country.
