UFC on FOX 10 in Tweets: Pros score Benson Henderson vs. Josh Thomson

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Benson Henderson's record-tying title run was characterized, in part, by close, often contentious decisions. Apparently, Henderson's post-title run is no different.

The former UFC lightweight champion eked out split decision victory over Josh Thomson at UFC on FOX 10's main event on Saturday night, picking up his first victory since forfeiting the belt to Anthony Pettis at UFC 164. Judges Brian Puccillo (48-47) and Sal D'Amato (49-46) scored the closely contested contest for Henderson, while judge Gabriel Sabaitis (47-48) was the lone dissenter in favor of Thomson.

Afterward an understandably disappointed Thomson voiced doubts about continuing his fighting career, stating simply, "this might be it." However Thomson's loss was not without its critics, as a sizeable number of his fellow fighters expressed surprise, and in some cases, anger, after the official scorecards were read. A timeline of the action, starting in the opening round, can be read below.
