UFC Tonight: White Nixes Benson Henderson’s Request to Face GSP

10_Henderson_Edgar_23UFC president Dana White recently discussed a request from UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson to get in on the recent superfight craze by facing UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. White told UFC Tonight that he quickly nixed the idea stating that “Bendo” had too much to do at lightweight first.

Said White:

“It’s not going to happen. Benson just won that title not too long ago, there are plenty of guys in the 155-pound division to defend the title against, and there’s a possible fight with Aldo if Aldo moves up and stays at 155.”

Both Henderson and St-Pierre are scheduled to face Cesar Gracie fighters in the coming months, with Bendo facing Gilbert Melendez and St-Pierre facing Nick Diaz.
