TULSA – Rafael dos Anjos said he thought he could stand and trade with Benson Henderson.
He did, and it worked out quite well for him. Dos Anjos (22-7 MMA, 11-5 UFC) upset former champ Henderson (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) with a first-round knockout in the main event, and cemented his status among the elite of the UFC’s lightweight division.
