02:41 PM ET 01.26 | In the main event of UFC on FOX 10, former UFC champion Benson Henderson came away with the split-decision victory over Josh Thomson. However, as is usually the case with Henderson fights, the decision was controversial and many believe that Thomson should have won the bout. Thomson, who suffered a right hand injury in the second round, was clearly frustrated with the decision and wasn't hiding his emotions after the fight. The emotional Thomson also hinted that this could be the end of the road for his mixed martial arts career. Of course, Thomson is coming off of two straight camps and a disappointing loss, so he will likely just need some time away to get his head right before returning to the octagon.

Thomson won that fight. I really couldn't see how they could give more than two rounds to Henderson.

Mind you...I've yet to see Henderson legitimately win a fight. He shouldn't have won either fight against Frankie Edgar, either. I've never been impressed with Henderson whatsoever.

Ben won rounds 2, 3 & 5..........Josh won round 1 & 4.

I gave the fight to Thomson. As they annouced the scores I was mystified so I went back and rewatched thinking I'd missed something.

Nope.
