Video: Bellator headliner Ben Henderson bored by Conor McGregor UFC retirement drama

Benson Henderson challenges Andrey Koreshkov for the welterweight title at Bellator 153 on April 22 at Mohegan Sun Arena. He also seems challenged to maintain interest when asked about Conor McGregor's alleged retirement.

Bellator 153 "Koreshkov vs. Henderson" goes down April 22, 2016 at Mohegan Sun Arena where Benson Henderson will challenge Andrey Koreshkov for the welterweight title on Spike TV.

In the interim, the internet is in an uproar over Conor McGregor allegedly retiring from UFC and the story has potential to overshadow Henderson's debut for Bellator this week. But if you watch the ESPN video included above, "Smooth" seems positively underwhelmed by McGregor's social media antics.

Could it be that Henderson thinks he makes a better welterweight than McGregor? We'll never be able to find out now that they're in different organizations, especially if McGregor is serious about hanging up his four ounce gloves.

Henderson might be hanging up the gloves himself soon if his plans to serve the military come to fruition.
