That while Benson Henderson is undefeated in the UFC at 7-0 he hasn't finished any of his opponents.

Only Frankie has never been finished in his career. Where's the hate that GSP gets or Fitch got before he got cut?

Since you missed all the threads the night of the fight, I'll break it down real quick.

There HAS been many mentions of Bendo not finishing his opponents. Since his fight with Gilbert and his previous fights. Its well known. I hate search functions on forums but I gotta say it....use the search function.

The difference, in my eyes, between Bendo and GSP/Fitch is that Benson's fights are generally really exciting. This coming from a big GSP fan. I'm not a fan of either Bendo or Gilbert but that was a great fight to watch. Exciting wins over boring when it comes to comparing a stat like finishes or lack thereof.

Because not all decision fighters are created equal. Benson may not be a great finisher but he clearly is TRYING to finish at all times. Did you see how quickly he pounced on Gil's back when Gil went down? GSP would've just waited for his opponent to get up so he could feed him some more jabs. Phone Post 3.0

Do you even read the threads on here when Benson is about to fight or after one of his fights? He gets tons of hate. Although comparing the way he fights to Jon Fitch is bit ridiculous.

No offence but your just deluded if you think benson is trying to finish at ALL times lol okay he takes more chances then say GSP (who I am also a fan of) but see the second Frankie fight or Diaz fight and he does deal decent punishment but never goes for the jugular. Cracking champion but most certainly not a finisher Phone Post 3.0

TheBlackFist - lol @ Benson always trying to finish

he has never once come close to finishing a fight, no close submission, has he even really hurt anyone bad enough that made you think he MIGHT be able to finish them later on in the fight?

I know! I'm beginning to think some fans dont know what trying to finish is. I guess bouncing around, playing with your hair, leg kicks, and jabs are the finishing/go for the kill moves these days.

Henderson scrambles hard and pounces on opportunities that I don't think a true point fighter would. He doesn't have great KO power and he's now fighting guys that are notoriously tough to finish compared to those in his pre-UFC career (when he was finishing).

If you don't see much difference between him and GSP, that's fine. I'm not going to insult your taste or question your fandom. It would be akin to expecting every baseball fan to like and dislike the same exact styles of play.

I will say that, personally,, I've fallen asleep twice during GSP defenses but never stopped watching Benson to the final bell. Phone Post 3.0

it's actually a pretty amazing stat about the guys he's faced.

Edgar and Melendez - never finished in their careers (44 fights between them)
Jim Miller - finished once in 26 fights
Diaz and Bocek - finished twice
Guida has been subbed a few times, but only twice in his UFC career

I find his fights exciting, whether I'm rooting for or against him.
