The MMA Outsider: Episode 92

The UFC on FOX 7 this weekend features an interesting dynamic. Ben Henderson. The current lightweight champion, once beleaguered for a questionable win over Frankie Edgar, now seems invincible after a dominating performance against Nate Diaz. Gilbert Melendez. The challenger, a perennial top ten fighter and longtime Strikeforce champion, himself has come under scrutiny lately during a long but somewhat routine win streak.

Is Melendez going to simply rediscover his old form now that he's in the UFC and facing top-level competition? And is Henderson ready to establish himself as one of the pound-for-pound best in MMA, or was his dominance of Nate Diaz aided by a favorable style matchup?

Richard and John break down the fight and the rest of the main card. Spoiler alert: Daniel Cormier will punish Frank Mir.
