Ben Henderson retained the UFC lightweight title following another controversial decision against Frank Edgar at UFC 150. Many believed Edgar won the first bout as well, when they met in February and Henderson won the title. Nevertheless, Henderson remains 5-0 in the UFC, since the UFC/WEC merger.

After losing two fights in a row, in the welterweight division, Nate Diaz returned to 155 lbs and put together his three best performances to date inside the octagon. Submission wins against Takanori Gomi and Jim Miller as well as a decision win against Donald Cerrone has earned Diaz a shot at UFC gold.
