With no meaningful NFL games to bet on for the first time in 17 weeks this weekend, sports fans can always turn their attention towards MMA. Heck, you can do that nearly every weekend in 2014 since there’s gonna be a UFC event practically every week this year…
This Saturday showcases a lightweight shootout between Josh Thomson (pictured) Benson Henderson. Thomson enters the scrap as more than a 2-1 underdog against the former champion.
Henderson, meanwhile, checks in as almost a 3-1 odds-on favorite.
United Center in Chicago, Illinois hosts the festivities.
