Thomson gained another take down off a kick counter, but was not able to nab a submission or knockout and the bout went the distance. In the end, it was close, but two of three judges saw the bout for Henderson.
Moving forward from this win, Henderson may see another shot at the belt he lost to Anthony Pettis.
As for Thomson, some wonder whether or not he may stay in the game. He left clearly disappointed in the loss and teased retirement in the post fight interview.
