- Ben Henderson, who fights this Friday at Bellator 153, made some waves on this week's MMA Hour when he said he may be done fighting soon. Henderson long said that he'd retire at 33, and on the show, he revealed why.

If you're the best and even if you don't have the belt and you're the best, it's more gratifying. The belt is a material thing. It's good. I won it a few times. But I want to fight the best, the biggest name," St-Pierre said on The MMA Hour (transcript courtesy of MMA Fighting."
