UFC ON FOX 10 RESULTS: Ben Henderson Takes Controversial Decision over Josh Thomson - 1/25/14



The Ultimate Fighting Championship presented UFC on FOX 10: Henderson vs Thomson on Saturday, January 25, 2014, at the famed United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The main card aired live on the Fox network, and was preceded by the live prelim special on Fox Sports 1.

In the main event, former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson narrowly outpointed former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson to win his eighth decision in eight UFC victories. This was Henderson's third UFC win by split decision, and it could go down as his most controversial, although his recent split decision win over Gilbert Melendez and both of his victories over Frankie Edgar still remain highly protested by portions of the MMA fanbase. Admittedly, Henderson earned the most important thing – his win bonus. But his pedestrian performance did not earn him a return title shot according to UFC President Dana White in the video below.
