In one of the most anticipated fights of the year, Benson “Smooth” Henderson will face off with Anthony “Showtime” Pettis on August 31 at UFC 164, live at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The rematch gives Henderson a chance to avenge his loss against Pettis in December 2010, a fight that saw Pettis land his now-famous “Showtime Kick.” Now the Lightweight champion, Henderson is riding a seven-fight winning streak into UFC 164 and will look to make up for that unanimous decision loss.
EA SPORTS UFC Insider Lauren Berlingeri had the opportunity to catch up with Henderson before UFC 164:
Feel the fight as the action, emotion, and intensity inside the Octagon are brought to life like never before. The next generation of MMA fighting begins in the spring of 2014 when EA SPORTS UFC is released for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.
