Benson Henderson Not Sold On Leaving Lightweight Division Yet

Former UFC champion Benson Henderson will return to the Octagon this January at UFC Fight Night 59 against Eddie Alvarez in the co-main event.

Earlier this year, Henderson sparked talk of a move to welterweight when he stated plans to fight once more at 155 pounds before shifting focus to a new goal.

Cutting down to lightweight has taken a toll on Henderson, but now, he sounds unsettled on his future after the Alvarez bout.

One thing is for sure, Henderson is taking the former Bellator champion 100-percent seriously. Alvarez made his debut in the UFC vs. Donald Cerrone, losing a decision. Henderson is also coming off a loss, having been stopped by Rafael dos Anjos.
