BELLATOR 285: Benson Henderson Defeats Peter Queally, Wants Another Title Shot

#3-Benson Henderson (30-11) defeated #7-Peter Queally (13-7-1) via unanimous decision (49-45, 49-45, 49-45).

via MMA Junkie:

Peter Queally, who had the entire arena rocking with his walkout to “Zombie” by The Cranberries, soaked in the scene moments before the main event got underway against Henderson (30-11 MMA, 7-6 BMMA). Unfortunately for the hometown fighter, the pre-fight celebration would be the only high point, as he ended up on the wrong side of a dominant unanimous decision.

Queally (13-7-1 MMA, 2-3 BMMA) didn’t waste time applying pressure to Henderson, as he quickly darted across the cage and began putting punching combinations together. Henderson remained calm and circled away as the crowd chanted for Queally. Henderson went to his grappling game, pinning Queally down to one knee against the fence while short strikes. This would be scene repeated over the next 20 minutes.

The judges turned in identical scores of 49-45 in Henderson’s favor, who used his post-fight interview time to make his case for another shot at the Bellator title.

With the win, Henderson keeps the momentum going following a split decision win over Islam Mamdeov in January. The former UFC lightweight champ walks away with the seventh win of his Bellator run, which includes wins over Myles Jury, Adam Piccolotti, and Patricio Freire.
