There hasn’t been much talk since Benson Henderson dropped his UFC lightweight title. Now, he’s ready to get back in the mix and Rafael dos Anjos is on his radar.
“We’re kind of leaning towards Rafael dos Anjos,” said Henderson on The MMA Hour. “We think it would be a good fight with him, entertaining, a good fight, and I think the match-up works well for us. I don’t know if he has anybody scheduled or not.”
Henderson knows getting back in the title picture won’t be easy with Anthony Pettis holding the gold. Pettis beat Henderson twice, lasting submitting him in the first round.
Anjos is up to five straight wins for the UFC. This year, he’s taken decisions over Evan Dunham and Donald Cerrone.
Neither lightweight has return information.
