Benson Henderson’s Bellator career hasn’t been quite the hit many were expecting, but the former UFC lightweight champion will have the opportunity to help right the ship in Saturday’s Bellator 183 main event.

After undergoing a challenging knee surgery, Henderson (24-7 MMA, 1-2 BMMA) returns to competition against Patricky Freire (17-8 MMA, 10-7 BMMA) in the lightweight headliner of Bellator 183, which takes place at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., with the main card on Spike following prelims streamed on MMAjunkie.

Freire is one of longest-tenured fighters on the Bellator roster, and the clash with Henderson will mark a record-tying 18th appearance for the organization. “Pitbull” has the chance to earn arguably the biggest win of his career against a former UFC and WEC titleholder.

Moreover, Freire will attempt to get revenge for his brother, Patricio Freire, who suffered a controversial second-round TKO loss to Henderson at Bellator 160 in August 2016.

How does each man get it done, though? Watch the video above as Bellator commentator Jimmy Smith analyzes the matchup and provides some keys to victory in the Bellator 183 main event.
