  1. Pettis kept a surprisingly good pace. Henderson was good, but Pettis showed surprisingly good takedowns, great transitions, and his expected striking. At the end of the last round he landed a flying kick leaping off the cage, knocking Henderson to the ground for a perfect ending to WEC's final bout ever. I had it 48-47 Pettis.
