Saturday is Valentine’s Day, a time to spend some dough on your honey and give her things like flowers and chocolates while she gets yet another tattoo of your name somewhere on her body. Also, it’s time for another installment of UFC goodness – this one dubbed UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Thatch and featuring former lightweight champ Benson Henderson moving up a weight class to take on explosive newcomer Brandon Thatch.
There are a variety of reasons why “Bendo” would take this fight, which comes soon after losing a close decision to buddy Donald Cerrone. Perhaps the former champ wants to break the losing streak he’s currently on, maybe he wants to get the bad taste the “L” has left in his mouth, or it’s possible he just needs to make a mortgage payment or something. But since it’s Valentine’s Day, I think there’s something else afoot.
Henderson, you see, is the ultimate in romantic goon, as shown in the following video:
Nothing says romance like a marriage proposal after a long, drawn-out battle in the cage. And no other fighter encapsulates that lovey-dovey side than Henderson, which, when you think about it, is probably the biggest reason he stepped in to headline Saturday’s show.
Anyhoo, here are some videos to get you motivated to tune in. Enjoy.
