Move over Dae Han, there's a new Korean badass in town.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight titleholder Ben Henderson, whose mother is Korean, made a trip back to the motherland recently to visit friends and family, as well as suit up for a little Tae Kwon Do practice. Not surprisingly, he made a "Smooth" entrance, complete with paparazzi and furious flashbulbs.
All the bells and whistles you would expect for a UFC champion.
Henderson took home the division's strap with a unanimous decision win over Frankie Edgar at UFC 144 last Saturday night (Feb. 25, 2012) in Saitama, Japan. It was his second major title at 155-pounds, having first secured the WEC Lightweight Championship back in 2010.
See the hero get his welcome, after the jump.
