PostSubject: Benson Henderson vs. Brandon Thatch set as new UFC Fight Night 60 main event   Mon Feb 02, 2015 11:08 am

With Stephen Thompson forced with withdraw from UFC Fight Night 60, Benson Henderson (21-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) has agreed to step in and face Brandon Thatch (11-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) in the main event.

The switch was confirmed on FOX Sports 1’s UFC 183 post-event show.

Henderson books a quick return to action after suffering a disappointing and somewhat controversial decision loss to Donald Cerrone at UFC Fight Night 59. The result saw Henderson suffer back-to-back defeats for this first time in his professional career.

Henderson was then slated to fight Jorge Masvidal (28-8 MMA, 5-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 63 on April 4, but instead, he’ll move up a weight class for a short-notice bout with Thatch.

Although he’s a former lightweight champion, Henderson has dabbled with the idea of a move to the 170-pound division for some time. “Smooth” will now make the jump for the first time in his career.

Meanwhile, Thatch hasn’t fought since November 2013 where he scored a first-round knockout of Paulo Thiago. The victory was his 10th in a row, all by stoppage in the opening round.

UFC Fight Night 60 takes place Feb. 14 at 1STBank Center in Broomfield, Colo. The main card airs on FOX Sports 1 following prelims on the same channel and UFC Fight Pass.

With the change in the main event, the lineup now includes:

MAIN CARD (FOX Sports 1, 10 p.m. ET)

Benson Henderson vs. Brandon Thatch
Max Holloway vs. Cole Miller
Kiichi Kunimoto vs. Neil Magny
Daniel Kelly vs. Patrick Walsh
Michel Prazeres vs. Kevin Lee
Ray Borg vs. Chris Kelades
PRELIMINARY CARD (FOX Sports 1, 8 p.m. ET)

Nik Lentz vs. opponent TBA
Efrain Escudero vs. Rodrigo Lima
Jim Alers vs. Chas Skelly
Tim Elliott vs. Zach Makovsky

No way in hell Benson loses this, right?
If so, that's got to be almost as quick of a fall from greatness as Miguel Torres'.
