On Saturday, Aug. 31, the UFC hosted UFC 164: Henderson vs. Pettis 2 from the Bradley Center in Milwaukee.

In the night’s main event, UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson looked to defend his belt against Anthony Pettis. The pair met previously at the final WEC event in December of 2010. Pettis defeated Henderson by decision and claimed the promotion’s 155-pound title in the process. Pettis looked to repeat that feat in the confines of the Octagon.

Also on the main card, former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir welcomed another former champion Josh Barnett back to the promotion, featherweight Chad Mendes looked to earn another title shot against the energetic Clay Guida, Brandon Vera returned to heavyweight to face Ben Rothwell, and featherweights Erik Koch and Dustin Poirier met in a long-awaited match-up.

The 12-fight event will kicked off at 5 p.m. ET with three bouts streaming on the promotion’s YouTube and Facebook pages. Four additional bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the five-fight, pay-per-view main card starting at 10 p.m. ET.
