"Here's the reality – if Thomson wins, he's the next in line," UFC president Dana White told FOX Sports on Thursday. "Obviously Ben Henderson just lost very decisively in his last fight with (Anthony Pettis) and should Benson Henderson win, we'll see what's up with Gil (Gilbert Melendez)."

 

Melendez has not booked a new fight, but now he may have an even bigger opportunity awaiting him if Henderson defeats Thomson on Saturday. Currently, the former Strikeforce king is negotiating a new deal with the UFC, but once his contract is complete then the promotion can move forward with his next fight.

 

"I met with him not yesterday but the day before, it went well," White said about Melendez. We like him. We're working on re-signing the kid. We had a lot of contracts that needed to be re-upped and we're getting them done."

 

It appears Saturday night's fight, while not a title bout on paper, definitely has championship implications on the line.

Only recognize 4 of these fighters, so I'm going to take your words here that this is worth watching.

Hugo Wolverine/Hernandez, Wineland/Jabouin and Little Pettis/Bruce Leeroy should be awesome fights from the prelims and all 4 top fight from the main card are decent.

I gotta tell you. I also had it Henderson 4-1. Josh had takedowns and got back control, but was doing no damage or efficient striking. I'm betting the striking numbers are HUGELY in the favorite of Benson. Having a leg triangle and being on a guys back is great, If you actually do something with it. 

 

edit. 

 

Yeah, I was right.  https://twitter.com/MikeChiappetta/status/427283396260151296

I can really see it 3-2 either way.  Thomson got some good positions but did very little with them.  Henderson got the better of him standing up.

 

I guess this means Melendez vs. Pettis is probably next.

 

Also, Henderson should fight TJ Grant.  

 

Also what about Cerrone vs. Nurmagomedov?  Also what is Rafael dos Anjos doing next since he racked up a nice win streak?
