Jack Slack Talkin' About Tulsa

Jack Slack's UFC Fight Night 49 Preview
By: Jack Slack, FIGHTLAND
"This weekend the UFC heads to Tulsa, Oklahoma for a Fight Night card headlined by lightweight number one contender, Benson Henderson, and number five ranked, Rafael Dos Anjos. It promises to be either a coming out party for Dos Anjos or another feather in the cap which Henderson is preparing as he pushes for another title shot.
 
"But there are plenty of gems to look out for further down the card. You could be forgiven for overlooking the undercard of most events, particularly televised cards—but there are always treats to be had. Fighters and fighting share the simple rule that if you understand them better, watching them is far more enjoyable. So here is a quick rundown of the fights—and the combatants—who are on my radar coming into UFC Fight Night: Henderson versus Dos Anjos."
