Former lightweight champion Benson Henderson won a disputed split decision over Josh Thomson in a five-round lightweight fight at UFC Chicago Saturday night, likely ending Thomson's career. Henderson (20-3) received winning scores of 48-47 and 49-46, and the other judge scored it 48-47 for Thomson (20-6). Thomson also was spurned by a split decision in a fight against Gilbert Melendez in a Strikeforce fight May 9, 2012 .Henderson gave up the title after being submitted by Anthony Pettis via an armbar at UFC 164 .Henderson is aiming for a third fight against Pettis with the belt on the line this summer, but it is unclear if he will get that chance.
