Benson Henderson can’t seem to escape controversy during his reign as UFC lightweight champion, this time winning another razor-thin split decision victory over Gilbert Melendez at UFC on FOX 7. Nevertheless, Henderson is a perfect 7-0 in the UFC, including victories over Frank Edgar, Nate Diaz, and Jim Miller.

Fighters go up or down in weight classes all the time in mixed martial arts, but few see the extreme improvement in success as TJ Grant has since dropping to the 155-pound division. After going just 3-3 in the welterweight division, Grant dropped to lightweight and has put together a 5-0 record and a shot at a world title. He’s earned dominant victories over Evan Dunham, Matt Wiman, and most recently a first round knockout win over former title challenger Gray Maynard at UFC 160.
