Benson Henderson earned the decision of his life this weekend and it was never in doubt. That's right, Henderson's marriage proposal to his girlfriend turned out to be an easy call. A clean sweep (off her feet) if you will. Henderson's decision win over Gilbert Melendez on the other hand, not as easy. San Jose figured to take Melendez's side, but there was plenty of support for a Melendez decision outside his hometown as well. Ultimately, it's tough to dispute the judges' decision. The scores reflected the situation -- nobody agreed 100 percent on exactly who won what. As a result, Melendez held on to the No. 2 spot in the ESPN.com lightweight rankings. Henderson, for one, believes he hasn't seen the last of Melendez. That, at least, is something we can all probably agree on.
