He faces Josh Thomson on Saturday…
Former UFC lightweight champion Ben Henderson appeared on UFC Tonight this week to discuss his upcoming main event bout with former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson at UFC on Fox 10. UFC on Fox 10 is set for Saturday, January 25. The main card will be broadcast on the Fox network. Below are some highlights:
Benson Henderson on his loss to Pettis: "I made a mistake. It happens. It happens to Anderson Silva, to Georges St-Pierre, to Jon Jones. It's a matter of making the mistake fewer and fewer times and making the opening smaller and smaller. Pettis capitalized on a mistake and I give credit to him."
Henderson on what type of adjustments he's made for this fight: "I made a mistake in the last fight, but I trust the process. At MMA Lab, we've been successful with the formula and we trust the process. It was a small mistake, so I don't need new coaches, trainers or to make any changes. I just get need to get better every day and minimize the mistakes."
Henderson on how he's approaching the fight with Thomson: "It's the same approach for all the fights. There's a lot of extra hoopla every fight – this is the first time for main event or the first time on a main card, whatever. But you've got to go out there, have a good performance and get your hand raised. It's the same fight as all the other fights in your career."
