Benson Henderson, the former UFC lightweight champion, will test his skills in the 2013 ADCC Submission Fighting World Championships this weekend in China.
Henderson faces Leonardo Nogueira in the opening round of the under 77kg men’s division.
Other notables entered into action include Vinny Magalhaes, a 2011 champion, Dean Lister and Antwain Britt.
Henderson lost the title to Anthony Pettis this past August via first round armbar. He is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
