Editorial Reviews

UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson didn't take the easy way to the top of the 155-pound weight class. But with skill, heart and determination, ''Smooth'' has become one of mixed martial arts' most exciting fighters and compelling figures. In this must-see, two-disc collection, relive Henderson's rise while watching his greatest bouts -- including battles with Frankie Edgar, Nate Diaz, Anthony Pettis, Donald Cerrone and Clay Guida.

By A. Irey on May 14, 2013
I'll be honest, I'm a bit surprised that Benson Henderson is getting a documentary DVD already. Typically these sets are saved for fighters who have had a lengthy career in the UFC, such as Matt Hughes and Forrest Griffin. While I believe this set may be early (especially given how the lightweight division is the one weight class in the UFC that has the highest turnover rate of champions) it is a very good set. If you've been following Henderson since his time in the WEC you know that given the right opponent he's easily one of the most exciting fighters to look out for. The best example would be his fight with Donald Cerrone from WEC 43, which was voted as fight of year and is easily one of my favorite fights ever. His style just seems to mesh well with a fighter more often than not. That has been proven many times in the UFC as well. All you have to do is look at his fights with Jim Miller, Clay Guida, and Frankie Edgar (the first fight). Once you've watched these fights it becomes easier to see why the UFC would wanna push for a set involving Benson Henderson.

The documentary portion of the set is only about an hour long. It's not bad and was reminiscent of Forrest Griffin's. I guess the only thing I didn't like (which is a personal preference) was that the documentary lacked any in depth discussion regarding some of Henderson's more pivotal fights in the WEC, specifically the Cerrone fight from WEC 43 and his title capturing effort over Jamie Varner. Of course, the Pettis fight from WEC 53 is mentioned and given some focus but it is the only fight from Henderson's WEC career given any worthy mention.

The first disc, along with the documentary includes all of Henderson's WEC fights which include:

WEC 38: vs. Anthony Njokuani
WEC 40: vs.

Putting the full fight library of Benson Henderson's WEC/UFC fights on the special features was a masterful stroke, and to be honest, what me and my friends enjoyed watching a lot more than the documentary itself (admittedly we're all pretty big fight fans).

The biggest weakness of the main doco is that Bendo himself isn't the most interesting dude. Sure, he trains inredibly hard and (especially now that I've watched all his old fights) he's certainly an incredibly skilled fighter, but a good Christian boy who loves his mum and teaches taekwondo to kids isn't exactly the makings of an earth shattering narrative.

I can't honestly recommend this dvd to anyone who isn't a big fight fan, but Bendo's technical, flashy style (particularly in early WEC) and the fact that they've been kind enough to include his full fight library made this enjoyable enough for me. Here's hoping for an Aldo edition...

The documentary portion is about 45 minutes and is a great chronicle of Benson Henderson's career. The fights are great as well and what makes this dvd worth buying. The fights and my rating out of 5 stars for each fight are

Disc 1:
- Ben Henderson vs. Anthony Njokuani, 4/5
- Ben Henderson vs. Shane Roller, 4/5
- Ben Henderson vs. Donald Cerrone, 5/5
- Ben Henderson vs. Jamie Varner, 4/5
- Ben Henderson vs. Donald Cerrone II, 3/5
- Ben Henderson vs. Anthony Pettis, 4.5/5

Disc 2:
- Ben Henderson vs Mac Danzig, 3.5/5
- Ben Henderson vs Jim Miller, 4.5/5
- Ben Henderson vs Clay Guida, 4/5
- Ben Henderson vs Frankie Edgar, 5/5
- Ben Henderson vs Frankie Edgar II, 5/5
- Ben Henderson vs Nate Diaz, 4/5

Overall, a great set from the UFC. Also, my 5 star rating has to do with the shipping, as I get it a day earlier then expected, pretty much the day after I ordered it (I ordered it on a Saturday night around midnight and got it the next Monday around 1). Great DVD, and I highly recommend it to any hardcore/casual UFC fan.
