It's been four years since former lightweight champion Benson Henderson finished an opponent. All that changed Saturday night, as Henderson choked out Dagestani fighter Rustam Khabilov at UFC Fight Night 42 in Albuquerque.
In making a case for his next title shot, hometown flyweight John Dodson turned in a convincing performance against former No. 1 contender John Moraga. He won via TKO when Moraga was unable to answer the third round bell.
Contender Rafael Dos Anjos was a rude welcoming committee for Jason High, who was making his lightweight debut. The Brazilian scored a second round TKO over the wrestler to put his name back in contention.
