Friday Feature: Benson Henderson

           The UFC offers up a doubleheader of mixed martial arts action this Saturday with two UFC Fight Night cards featuring some of the most talented fighters in the world.
 
Amongst the exciting bouts tomorrow is the UFC Fight Night 49 headliner between former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson and rising contender Rafael Dos Anjos.
 
Benson Henderson has been protecting his jewels inside the Octagon with the best cup in the business for quite some time. You guessed it; Henderson is a supporter of Diamond MMA.
 
While Henderson was climbing the ranks inside the Octagon en route to winning the UFC lightweight title against Frankie Edgar at UFC 144, he settled for nothing less than Diamond.
 
Benson has since lost the title to current champion Anthony Pettis after three successful defenses, but is now right back in the mix at the top of the heap after two straight victories.
 
As for Dos Anjos, he is 6-1 in his last seven bouts with his lone loss coming to top contender Khabib Nurmagomedov. If Dos Anjos can pull off the upset over Henderson, he could find himself in line for a No. 1 contender fight in the beginning of 2015.
 
If Henderson defeats Dos Anjos tomorrow night, you can bet he will be next in line for a UFC title shot and potentially another rematch against Anthony Pettis.
