UFC Benson Henderson WEC

After watching 3-to-1 underdog Kelvin Gastelum serve up an upset special this past Saturday over Uriah Hall to score a six-figure UFC contract, gamblers have been itching for another taste of some longshot lovin’.

Thankfully, the Octagon returns to action for the third straight weekend with another event. UFC on FOX 7 showcases a lightweight title tilt between champion Benson Henderson (pictured) and Gilbert Melendez. 

Henderson is nearly a 3-to-1 odds-on favorite to retain his hardware against the former Strikeforce champ. Melendez, meanwhile, is pegged as more than a 2-to-1 underdog in his big league debut.

HP Pavilion in San Jose, California hosts Saturday’s show.
