UFC Fight Night 38 is in the books and with it, the first light heavyweight finish of his career. His opponent was Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua who won the first two rounds after dropping Henderson consecutively in each of them. Henderson looked to be spent until in the third round, he blasted Rua with a right hand as they separated from a clinch. Rua reeled backwards and turtled up as Henderson landed a few closing shots.
The co-main event was a brief affair as middleweights CB Dolloway and Cezar Ferreira fought. Ferreira came in over-aggressive and was countered by Dolloway who kept his lead shoulder high to set up a beautiful counter.
