CHICAGO – Benson Henderson‘s knack for winning close fights continued today as the former UFC lightweight champion edged Josh Thomson.

The bout headlined UFC on FOX 10, which aired on FOX from Chicago’s United Center.

Henderson (20-3 MMA, 8-1 UFC) ultimately took the split-decision victory from Thomson (20-6 MMA, 3-2 UFC), who appeared to break his hand or thumb early in the fight. Despite the injury, the former Strikeforce champ gave Henderson everything he could handle and earned the decision on many unofficial scorecards.

Check out the highlights above.
