The main event of Saturday’s card is a welterweight bout between Benson Henderson (21-5) and Brandon Thatch (11-1). Henderson is a former UFC lightweight champion that is moving up to 170 pounds for one night only. He took this fight on short notice as he is coming off a controversial decision loss to Donald Cerrone just a few weeks ago in a lightweight bout. Thatch has won 10 straight and is 2-0 in the UFC with a pair of first-round KO finishes.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Thatch is the slight favorite in this bout, as he has odds of -120 to win, while Henderson has been given a money line of -110 to prevail. These two will meet in the main event of UFC Fight Night on Saturday. The event airs on Fox Sports 1 starting at 10PM ET.

Henderson is a well-rounded fighter that will look to use his wrestling and kicks to dictate the style of the fight. Thatch will be more aggressive and look to finish Henderson quickly. The big key in this fight will be the fact it is five rounds. This is something Henderson has done regularly, while Thatch is competing for the first time in a 25-minute bout.
