Ben Henderson will defend his UFC lightweight title against Strikeforce import Gilbert Melendez this Saturday night (April 20, 2013) in the main event of UFC on FOX 7, which emanates from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
And, since most people don't care what Nostradumbass thinks (sniff), our buddy Spencer Lazara hit the streets to get predictions from some of today's top fighters in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
Here's what they said.
Frank Mir: "Underrated" Henderson by way of amazing performance
Anthony Pettis: Henderson by striking and athleticism
Cub Swanson: Henderson by being solid everywhere
Diego Brandao: Henderson because he's exciting
Anthony Njokuani: Henderson by better wrestling game
Myles Jury: Melendez by upset
Wanderlei Silva: Oh, ah, theese one feefty-feefty
Bobby Green: Melendez because Henderson is not entertaining
There you have it. Sounds like "Smooth" has the pros on his side.
Well, we've heard from them, now let's hear from you. Who wins this weekend's championship fight and why?
