Benson Henderson nearing clean bill of health, wants return at UFC Seoul
Benson Henderson isn't yet ready to return, but he's getting close. The former UFC lightweight champion is "on the verge" of being medically cleared from the injury he suffered in May, MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani reported Wednesday on UFC Tonight. Henderson (22-5) has been sidelined since removing his name from a planned bout against Michael Johnson at The Ultimate Fighter 21 Finale. Henderson attributed the withdrawal to injury, but repeatedly declined to elaborate on the nature of the damage, stating only that "it was in [the] area" of his eye.
