Henderson-Dos Anjos Set for Tulsa Main Event

Former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson will look to keep his number one ranking intact on Saturday, August 23, when he faces the fifth-ranked Rafael dos Anjos in a five-round main event that will headline UFC Fight Night in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Henderson is coming off his second consecutive win since losing his title to Anthony Pettis in August of 2013, as he submitted Rustam Khabilov in the fourth round in Albuquerque on June 7. That same night, dos Anjos delivered one of the most impressive wins of his UFC career as he stopped Jason High in two rounds, putting him at six wins in his last seven bouts.

Tickets for the event go on sale on Friday, July 11.
