- Ben Henderson recently spoke about being the UFC Lightweight Champion. Here are the highlights…
On Winning Fights: "I'm just doing whatever I have to do to get my hand raised," said Henderson, who's won five straight decisions since his UFC debut in April of 2011. "If that leads to me getting guillotine [choke] submissions in the first round, cool, I'll take it. If it leads to me getting split decisions in pretty close fights, I'll take that too."
On Criticisms of His Victories: "The only time I hear it is when [reporters] bring it up. Otherwise, I don't pay attention to it at all. Maybe I should."
On Not Making Fights Personal: "I've never had anything personal where I hated the guy, and his momma and everything else," Henderson said. "Everyone I've fought has been a pretty decent guy. It's never been personal for me in my fighting career. I don't think I've ever fought anyone who didn't like me as a person, either."
