Benson Henderson vs. Rafael dos Anjos

It’s time for the main event, as former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson (21-3) takes on Rafael dos Anjos (21-7).

Round 1: Loud “Benson” chant right from the start as they square off. Dos Anjos takes early control of the center of the Octagon, but it’s Henderson who lands with a kick to the lead leg. Massive hooks just misses by Henderson, who follows with a right and eats a left. Excellent body shot from Henderson and it gets answered right back. Push-kick by Henderson sends RFA flying to the canvas. Dos Anjos catches him against the fence, lands a combo and follows up with a knee. RDA continues to attack and he stuns Henderson. The ref steps in and this one is all over, as John McCarthy called it. Henderson tries to tell him he is fine and can keep going, but we have a huge upset to conclude the evening.
