UFC lightweight champion, Benson "Smooth" Henderson, was one of the WEC's top lightweights before getting placed into the UFC. He proved the WEC doubters wrong, as he became the UFC lightweight champion and has since defended it twice. With that, he has now signed an eight fight deal with the UFC, likely for a pretty good amount of money.

Ben Henderson, the reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion, is coming off a terrific win over Nate Diaz at UFC on Fox 5 in Dec. 2012, defending his 155-pound title for the second time in a row.

"Smooth" has made it to the highest point in the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion's most talent-laden division, and now it looks like he'll be getting the pay that comes with it, inking a brand new eight fight deal with the UFC.
