Ben Henderson vs. Rustam Khabilov full fight video preview online for UFC Fight Night 42

Ben Henderson thinks he's headed back to lightweight title contention but a Russian badass named Rustam Khabilov stands in his way. The two will tussle in the main event of tonight's (Sat., June 7, 2014) UFC Fight Night 42 show on Fox Sports 1 from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Henderson:

"Rustam is a tough kid but he's a tough kid who wants to take my place in line. That's not going to happen. This is a big opportunity fore me just because it's my chance to show that when I'm at my best, I'm the best in the division. The plan is just to go in there and beat him up, plain and simple. I've got to win, period. I'm beating Rustam tonight because it's time to get my belt back and no one is going to stand in my way."

Khabilov:

"I am very happy to be the main event in Albuquerque, because this is where I have been training so that I am adjusted to the climate, everything, for the night of the fight. Albuquerque is my second home. I have a lot of friends coming tonight, and I am honored to fight and win in front of them. Because I have the best coaches, and the best sparring partners, I have everything and I will win."
