"I don't know (how closesly this fight will resemble the first). Who's to say? ... All I know is that I intend on having it end the same way, with my hand raised. I do like having the bullseye on my back. I like having the belt around my waist and a bullseye on my back. It makes me hungry, keeps me hungry, and I'm excited. I like having those challenges."

-- Tonight's (Sat., Aug. 11, 2012) UFC 150: "Henderson vs. Edgar 2" event at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, will feature Ben Henderson defending his lightweight championship for the very first time against the man he won the belt from, Frankie Edgar. In a chat with FUEL TV, "Bendo" revealed he likes having the bullseye on his back that comes with being champion. And he's been called out by every 155-pound fighter under the sun, too. But they'll have to wait until after tonight when Henderson attempts to defeat Edgar for the second consecutive time.
