Nearly three years and one defunct organization ago, Anthony Pettis defeated Benson Henderson for the WEC lightweight title.

Fast forward to present day and the same scenario finds itself at the feet of the same two fighters.

Once again, Benson Henderson and Anthony Pettis will square off for a title. This time, however, the strap in question is the highest regarded prize a 155lb mixed martial artist can hope to achieve, a UFC title.

Will Benson Henderson continue his reign of dominance over the lightweight division? Or will Anthony Pettis spoil his party like he did nearly three years ago?

UFC Countdown dives deeper into the history of the Henderson/Pettis feud that will add a new chapter at UFC 164.

On Saturday night, we'll find out who is fated to come out on top of their epic rivalry.
