Ahead of UFC 164 the WHOA! TV team were asked to give you their predictions on who they thought would take home the UFC Lightweight title.
Alan: “My heart says Pettis but my brain says Henderson. In true ‘Smooth’ style it will be another five-rounder with the champ barely retaining his title and having Dana White licking his lips at another top notch rubber match to promote. However, I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if Pettis lands a 440 jumping super elbow-knee to get the win. Result: Benson Henderson via split decision.”
Rob: “This is a pick’em, very tough to choose a winner but I’ll take Benson by decision. He’s proven he knows how to win decisions in his past few fights. I don’t think Pettis will be able to stop the take down. I could be completely wrong though.”
Michael: ” Pettis will look to leave an impression on Benson that’ll haunt him for the rest of his days. Pundits have said the flamboyant kick in the first fight was a fluke; Pettis will prove lightning does strike twice in devastating fashion. Not only will we see Pettis win via KO, it’ll be done with utter ferocity.”
