Thoughts on the show
So @BrettAwesome makes a good point. Why was Henderson over a 10-1 favorite going into the 5th, when almost everyone has Thomson up 3-1?

I suppose 48-47 for Ben Henderson works, but 49-46 (four rounds to one) does not. Scoring on volume seems to be the achilles heel of so many MMA judges. And, once again, a big UFC fight has Sal D’Amato as a main event judge.
Curt Menefee did not bring his A-game. The mood of the TV crew was flat. No interviews after fights. UFC & Fox rushed right off air after the Henderson decision was announced.
Fox Sports 1 ran a very compelling piece about Adriano Martins that I thought was really well done and apparently nobody saw it. The way UFC treated the Chicago show on Fox versus last month’s telecast from Sacramento was night and day. So much more energy for the December show, and that show didn’t clock in with great ratings.
