Ben Henderson takes gold and absolute at the AZ Open.
Ben “Smooth” Henderson continues to compete at the highest levels of mixed martial arts, even outside of the UFC octagon. Just days ago, the reigning UFC Lightweight Champion worked his way through a tough field of competitors en route to taking gold at the 8th Annual Arizona Jiu Jitsu Open.
Below is the complete gold medal match between Henderson and Christian Broadnax, a very game fighter who is an accomplished mixed martial artist in his own right. Though he was outclassed in this match-up, Broadnax didn’t back down and made it a very competitive fight.
