Thomson says Henderson is Biggest Threat

Josh Thomson says Henderson is more of a threat than Pettis
By Steph Daniels, Bloody Elbow
"December 14th was the night former Strikeforce lightweight champion, Josh Thomson was supposed to square off against current UFC lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis. It would mark his second fight in the organization since his return (his first stint in the UFC began more than 10 years ago). In the latest of several fight cancellations, Pettis injured his knee, and will be out of commission for 6 - 8 months. Instead, Thomson will be facing former champ, Ben Henderson early next year at UFC on Fox 10.

"Not much really changes from the Pettis to the Henderson fight. For me personally, stylistically, Benson is more of a threat than Pettis was. Not to mention that this is the opportunity to fight someone that has been the champ for the last couple years. For me, I think Benson has the bigger name. Not to take anything away from Pettis, but Henderson has been more active over the last two years, so there was no way I could pass on this opportunity."
