UFC 164: Henderson vs Pettis Live Odds

UFC 164: Henderson vs. Pettis was a mixed martial arts event held on August 31, 2013, at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The main event was expected to be a UFC Lightweight Championship bout between the current champion Benson Henderson and top contender TJ Grant. However, Grant was forced out of the bout with an injury and was replaced by Anthony Pettis.

In the co-main event of UFC 164, Josh Barnett stopped Frank Mir via TKO in under two minutes.

The champion went to work on his game plan immediately in the fight – but that just meant the challenger had to bide his time.

Anthony Pettis survived champ Benson Henderson's early clinch work against the cage, and then he went to work, himself. Pettis landed kick after kick to Henderson's rib cage, and when the fight hit the canvas, he latched onto the champion's right arm.

Benson Henderson vs Anthony Pettis

Round 1: Referee Herb Dean is the third man in the cage for tonight’s lightweight championship main event. Henderson moves quickly across the cage to grab a single-leg and works to take Pettis down for the better part of the opening minute.

Pettis balances on one leg, then regains his footing and gets off the fence. The fighters are only separated for a moment before Henderson comes back to try another single. This one is quickly abandoned in favor of a right hand and knees to Pettis’ body. Pettis widens his base as Henderson changes to a double-leg, then waits out the attempt as Henderson knees at his legs. Pettis steps in and puts his leg across Henderson’s midsection, then drives a punch to the same spot, followed by three more kicks. “Showtime” gets fancy and tries a hand-plant kick which allows Henderson to get on top.

Pettis swings his legs around and traps Henderson’s left arm, then goes belly-down to try and extend the armbar. Henderson’s right arm is trapped, too, so it comes as a surprise when Pettis releases and gets to his feet. When Pettis raises his arms and Herb Dean waves his, it becomes clear: Henderson verbally submitted, and Anthony Pettis is the new UFC lightweight champion.
