By Brian Knapp Aug 22, 2014
If Benson Henderson lands another shot at the Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight crown he once held, he will have run quite the gauntlet.

On the heels of his submission victory over Rustam Khabilov in June, Henderson checked in at 155.5 pounds for his five-round battle with Rafael dos Anjos (155) in the UFC Fight Night “Henderson vs. dos Anjos” main event on Saturday at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla. Welterweight co-headliners Mike Pyle (170.75) and Jordan Mein (170.25) also made weight without incident at Friday’s official weigh-in.
