A controversial decision at UFC on Fox 10 cost the lightweight division its most logical championship matchup.
Had Josh Thomson defeated Benson Henderson on Saturday, and many feel he did, "Punk" would have been an easy choice to meet 155-pound champion Anthony Pettis. Instead, two judges sided with Henderson, who walked away with his third split decision win in five fights.
Considering he's lost to the titleholder twice in recent years, Henderson probably isn't the best option to be Pettis' first title challenger. With another highly ranked contender, TJ Grant, still recovering from a concussion, the lightweight title picture is becoming cloudy.
As UFC matchmakers sort out this mess, here are the fights that should be made for Henderson, Thomson and the rest of the UFC on Fox 10 competitors.
