Ben Henderson has a 'Smooth' message for the 'other' UFC lightweights ...

He ... is ... coming ... according to his latest Facebook update:

Just heard about the merger, I was out running and when I got home had a hundred missed calls and a thousand texts...I'm excited that's really cool but I have a dance on Dec.16th to get ready for first, that's the only thing I care about right now...BUT all of you other '55ers out there consider this your official notice, I'M COMING, it was always a matter of when but now we know and it's a lock, train hard...

Where do you rank the WEC Lightweight Champion in the UFC's 155-pound division now that the promotions are merging? Does he make your top five? Top ten? "Smooth" will face the winner of Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard to unify the WEC and UFC lightweight titles -- if he can get past Anthony Pettis at WEC 53 on Dec. 16.
