- Dana White spoke following the UFC on FOX 10 main event between Benson Henderson and Josh Thomson. Here are the highlights…
On Henderson vs. Thomson: "If you had Henderson winning the fight, it wasn't by that wide of a margin. fight was a lot closer. I don't think either guy really went after it and tried to pull out the win. As far as Ben Henderson fights go, this is the typical Ben Henderson fight. This is the way his fights go. He's a grinder, and he grinds out decisions."
On The 49-46 Score For Henderson: "That's insane," White said of the score. "This is always a problem. My thing is, you guys both know you're fighting for the chance to get a shot at the title, OK? you're getting a shot at the title. You go. Go, go, go. Go for broke. Don't ever leave it in the judges' hands, or at least put on enough of a performance to know you won because you can never trust the judges."
Did Henderson Earn a Title Shot With His Victory?: "Ben Henderson lost twice to Pettis, the champion, and he got destroyed last fight," White said. "He didn't do anything that's going to have anybody screaming, ‘Oh, I want to see him get another shot at Pettis.'"
