Benson Henderson on the Mayweather and McGregor fight
Benson Henderson a veteran UFC fighter and former champion was not pleased with the huge show between Connor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather. Henderson, who is currently in the Bellator, believes the whole fiasco was ‘detrimental for MMA’. In doing so, Henderson also took a dig at WWE, calling the wrestling company a mock contest. He went on to add how this might be starting a bad trend for fighting. The matches will be worked, and finishes will be booked beforehand, this is not the way Henderson wants MMA to go down. McGregor took on Floyd Mayweather in one of the biggest money-making matches in the history of sports. Connor McGregor who is almost unbeatable in UFC lost via TKO in the last round. This also marked the 50th win of Floyd Mayweather’s career. Although many were pleased with the whole thing, Henderson was not happy. He was opposed to the fact that one fighter had to carry the other one for a few rounds before winning. He also does not appreciate loudmouths in the sport; fighters who only talk trash but cannot perform in the ring. Henderson returns to the octagon at Bellator 183 after an ACL injury.
