Thomson earned a takedown within the first minute of the round, and he even started punching Henderson with his apparently broken right hand. It may not have been pretty, but surely it was scoring points.
Henderson managed to scoot his legs up while attempting to set up a submission from the bottom, but he wasn't able to do so. Thomson stayed in on him, but "Bendo" got to his feet, reversed, and took Thomson down, landing in guard.
That lasted for all of eight seconds before the two went right back to clinching against the cage.
Thomson scored yet another takedown late in the round and and once again took Henderson's back. "Bendo" stood up and while Thomson was riding his back, he pumped up the crowd by waving his arm and asking for noise.
They obliged, but the round ended. Only one more to go!
