UFC 150: Benson Henderson beats Frankie Edgar to retain title in controversial split decision
by Kevin Iole
Henderson pulled out a split decision, winning 48-47 on two cards and losing 49-46 on the third to retain the title he won from Edgar at UFC 144 in Japan.
Edgar was elusive and difficult for Henderson to catch. Henderson, who had an 89-62 edge in strikes landed, was scoring well with kicks early in the fight. But as the bout wore on, Edgar was more in control.
