UFC on FOX results: Ben Henderson vs Clay Guida fight metric reports shows 'Smooth' dominance

Other than the champion of the weight class, there has been no lightweight fighter who has impressed more in the last year than Ben Henderson. That includes last night (Nov. 12, 2011) in Anaheim, California, at UFC on Fox 1: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos," where "Bendo" put in an impressive effort against top division contender Clay Guida.

Impressive effort is actually selling it short. Henderson was dominant, as you can see in the Fight Metric report above, which shows "Smooth" landing 102 total strikes (40 significant) compared to just 35 from Guida (11 significant).

That's enough to earn him a crack at Frankie Edgar in Japan on Feb. 26, 2012.

Henderson's more than just a solid striker, though, and he proved that in the clinch and when "The Carpenter" tried to wrestle with him. Check out the grappling and performance reports after the jump.
