Benson Henderson made it look easy against an opponent who has made a career out of making things difficult for his opponents. After Henderson's win over Nate Diaz at UFC on Fox 5 on Saturday night, it's now time to begin discussing who will serve as the next challenger for the lightweight champion.
Henderson is already one win away from tying BJ Penn and predecessor Frankie Edgar for the most lightweight title defenses in UFC history. The lightweight division is far from void of serious contenders, though. Along with the fighters who have been in the mix for a shot at the UFC belt for years, Gilbert Melendez and Eddie Alvarez could be on their way to the Octagon in the near future.
When it comes to picking the next 155-pound title challenger, there are plenty of options available for the UFC to choose from. Let's take a look at who should be next for Henderson and the rest of the UFC on Fox 5 competitors who will be returning to the Octagon.
