Just a few months back, a main event featuring a beltless Benson Henderson against a Strikeforce veteran like Josh Thomson would have seemed unlikely and perhaps a bit of a yawner.

However, following Henderson's second loss to now-lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and Thomson's highly impressive knockout victory against Nate Diaz, the matchup has gained steam and expectations have heightened.

The card offers seven other fights at weight classes of lightweight or below, guaranteeing plenty of fast-paced action for a national audience. Let's look at whether Henderson takes another step back to regaining his championship belt, as well as where to look for value in the other fights at UFC on Fox 10.
