Benson Henderson Clears Up Any Talk Of Move To Welterweight

UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson has talked numerous times about his ability to cut weight and make the 155-pound limit.

Recently, Henderson said that as he continues to get older, the drop gets tougher, sparking rumors of a move to welterweight in the near future.

However, “Smooth” made sure to clear up any thoughts of a jump to a new weight class via Twitter recently.

Henderson will look for his second successful title defense in December against Nate Diaz. The two square off in the main event of UFC on Fox 5 from Seattle.
