FOX Sports 1 UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Thatch viewing and schedule guide

BY Damon Martin • February 6, 2015

Former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson loves a good challenge, so when the opportunity came to step up and face Brandon Thatch in the main event of FOX Sports 1 UFC Fight Night in Broomfield, Colo., he jumped at the chance.

Henderson has long talked about the idea of moving up to welterweight at some point in his career, and the timing was right for him to not only make the change but to fight in a headline bout against one of the most promising prospects on the roster.

In addition to Henderson vs. Thatch, the fight night card will feature an interesting featherweight showdown between Max Holloway, who is currently riding a three fight win streak, and Cole Miller.
