He'll get a shot at Pettis...
Dana White recently spoke with MMAjunkie about the main event between Benson Henderson and Josh Thomson this weekend at UFC on FOX 10. Check out the highlights:
On the stakes of the fight: "Here's the reality: If Thomson wins, he's the next in line. Obviously Ben Henderson just lost very decisively in his last fight with (Pettis). Should Benson Henderson win, we'll see what's up with Gil."
On Gilbert Melendez: "I met with (Melendez) the day before – it went well. We like him. We're working on re-signing the kid. We had a lot of contracts that needed to be re-upped, and we're getting them all done now. We just re-signed Travis Browne, we just re-signed Dan Henderson, we just re-signed Tim Kennedy. And now we'll get this Gil deal done and start working again and not doing deals every day...I think no matter what happens on Saturday, it's not bad for him. He's one of the top three ranked (lightweights) in the world."
