HENDERSON FACES THOMSON IN BATTLE OF TOP-5 RANKED LIGHTWEIGHTS ON FOX UFC SATURDAY

UFC Lightweight Champ Pettis Joins Cormier and Stann as Analyst on FOX Sports 1

LOS ANGELES, CA - The Ultimate Fighting Championship(R) (UFC(R)) heats up FOX UFC SATURDAY: HENDERSON VS. THOMSON as two of the top lightweight fighters of this era finally meet in the Octagon(R) live and in prime time on FOX and FOX Deportes on Saturday, January 25 (8:00 PM ET), when former UFC lightweight champion and No. 1-ranked "Smooth" Benson Henderson (19-3) battles former Strikeforce titleholder and No. 4-ranked Josh "The Punk" Thomson (20-5, 1NC).

Henderson, who defended his championship belt two times on FOX, is looking to set up another title run and has all the skills to do it, says UFC on FOX analyst and No. 2-ranked lightweight Gilbert Melendez. "I had 25 minutes in the cage with him. Henderson is so tactical. He makes a lot of adjustments in a fight. Just when I thought it was going my way, he gets you thinking. You think he's going to kick and he comes with a strike. He's hard to hit, uses the cage to his advantage and is an amazing athlete."

Thomson earned this fight with a second-round knockout of Nate Diaz at FOX UFC SATURDAY: HENDERSON VS. MELENDEZ in April. "Josh Thomson is a fantastic athlete," says UFC on FOX analyst Brian Stann. "This is going to be an explosive fight."

The two-hour main card features three more exciting matchups, including No. 8-ranked Stipe Miocic (10-1) against resurgent heavyweight contender and No. 12-ranked Gabriel Gonzaga. No. 8-ranked lightweight Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone (21-6, 1NC) takes on Brazilian standout Adriano Martins (25-6), while No. 10-ranked featherweight Darren Elkins (18-3) rounds out the card against Jeremy Stephens (22-9).

Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan call the matchups live on FOX from the United Center in Chicago, IL. Host Curt Menefee opens the show on FOX, with Stann and UFC light heavyweight Daniel Cormier adding analysis. Megan Olivi provides reports and interviews fighters backstage. Víctor Dávila and Fabricio Werdum call the fights on FOX Deportes.

The FOX UFC SATURDAY PRELIMS begin on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes at 5:00 PM ET with six exciting fights, including four tough bantamweight matchups. Undefeated Sergio Pettis (10-0) faces Alex Caceres (9-5, 1NC) and No. 4-ranked bantamweight Eddie Wineland (20-9-1) takes on Yves Jabouin (19-8). Chico Camus (13-4) clashes with Yaotzin Meza (19-8) and Junior Hernandez (14-5) battles Hugo Viana (7-2) in another 135-pound scrap. Rounding out the prelims, Daron Cruickshank (13-4) encounters Mike Rio (9-3) in a lightweight fight.
