Henderson (21-5) is a former lightweight champion that is fighting at 170 pounds for the first time and doing it after just competing at 155 pounds on Jan. 18. Henderson has lost two straight and is desperate to pick up a win. Thatch (11-1) has won his last 10 fights, and is 2-0 in the UFC. All 11 of his wins have ended by stoppage in the first round.

The latest odds according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv have Thatch as the favorite, as he is getting odds of -155 to win, while Henderson has a money line of +125 to prevail. These two will meet in the main event of UFC Fight Night tonight in Colorado. The main card airs on Fox Sports 1 at 10PM ET.

Henderson certainly has the experience edge, but he is very much out-sized in this fight. That became clear at the weigh-ins when Thatch looked like a giant compared to him. Henderson may have a shot if he can survive the first round, since Thatch hasn’t had to really fight much past five minutes. However, Thatch’s size and explosive power is probably going to be too much for Henderson to overcome.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT FREE PICK: Brandon Thatch -155
