Ben “Smooth” Henderson was successful in becoming the new UFC Lightweight Champion by defeating Frankie Edgar at UFC 144 this past weekend.
Congrats to Smooth and we look forward to seeing him have a very long reign as champ!
An interesting side-note to this picture… the photographer who took this photo, Tracy Lee, is also mixed Korean (found that out via MMA fighter Denis Kang)!
Also, if you haven’t seen Ben’s new signature tees by Dethrone Royalty, his UFC 144 walkout “Smooth Angel” tee and Training tee (there is also this Training t-shirt bundle that includes an autographed poster!), make sure to check them out!
