Ben Henderson Says He Still Isn't Over the Loss to Anthony Pettis
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 11.28.2012



TMZ spoke with UFC lightweight champion Ben Henderson (17-2, MMA; 5-0, UFC) about his upcoming title match with Nate Diaz at UFC on Fox 5 on December 8:

Regarding his loss to Anthony Pettis in the WEC:"I'm not over that...It's not about compartmentalizing. It's about embracing all of it, accepting all of it. That moment, losing, happened once in the past six years. That moment happened to me like it was yesterday. The work I'm doing now, that's what makes me win my next fight."

Regarding how he wasn't rattled by the reception following his split decision win over Frankie Edgar in their rematch: "I think my physical maturation along with my spiritual and emotional maturation coincided nicely to lead me to the point where I'm at now."

Why he thinks Diaz is able to throw people off their game with his trash talk: "Jim Miller had never thrown a flying knee in his career. He threw a flying knee from five feet away? Why? Because Diaz flipped him off."

Why he hasn't forgotten or gotten over the loss to Pettis: "I don't take it and forget about it. You have to take it, let it fuel you, and make you a better fighter and person."
