Whether or not you agree with the decision, Benson Henderson it still the undisputed UFC lightweight champion.
He presumably did enough to take a decision out of Frankie Edgar's hands yet again and seemed to withstand everything the challenger threw at him (except the knockdown).
It wasn't the greatest of performances by a champion looking to undoubtedly secure a victory in a close rematch but it is what it is.
Next up for Henderson will be Nate Diaz.
Henderson will surely have his hands full but could actually fare better against a guy slightly slower than Edgar.
In the future it's going to be hard for "Smooth" to swat away the copious amount of contenders the lightweight division has to offer. But for now, he's the No. 1 guy for obvious reasons.
In other news, this sorry writer lost a gallon milk challenge thinking the judges would award Edgar with the decision. Guess I'll be chugging like a champ.
