Benson Henderson's Coach Says That His Decision-Prone Reputation Is Probably Accurate
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.27.2014

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Benson Henderson's (20-3 MMA, 8-1 UFC) coach John Crouch (of MMA Lab) said that Henderson's reputation for being reliant on decisions is probably accurate. He beat Josh Thomson by split decision at UFC on FOX 10.

On Henderson's reputation: "It's accurate, probably. He's gotten that reputation, and we have squeaked out some close fights."

On why he gets so many decision wins: "I think part of it is he's fighting the best people in the world. He fought Gilbert Melendez, Frankie Edgar twice, [Anthony] Pettis, and now Josh Thomson, who was top 10 since before Ben started fighting. Those aren't guys you're going to blow out."

On changing his style: "For us, you can't do that. If you start worrying that you need to change your style, it's no good. You end up like some of these guys who go in there like zombies, just throwing punches, and they win one ‘Fight of the Night' bonus on their way to a four-fight losing streak and then they're done. Our goal is to be as good as we can be."
