Josh Thomson thought he won at UFC on Fox 10

Although Josh Thomson lost to former UFC lightweight champ Benson Henderson on Saturday night, he definitely believes that the judges got it wrong and that his hand should've been the one to get raised.

"The Gilbert fight that to me was a close fight, but I can say how it went either way, but this fight, I won with one hand. I beat the former UFC champion," Thomson told The Canadian Press.

The final score? 48-47 and 49-46 for Henderson, and 48-47 for Thomson.

But even though it was a very close fight, UFC President Dana White didn't see any of these fighters wanting the win, especially when there was title shot opportunities on the line.

"I don’t think either guy really went after it and tried to pull out the win," White told Las Vegas’ KVVU FOX 5 Las Vegas.

“This is always a problem. My thing is, you guys both know you’re fighting for the chance to get a shot at the title, OK? You’re getting a shot at the title. You go. Go, go, go," White continued. "Go for broke. Don’t ever leave it in the judges’ hands, or at least put on enough of a performance to know you won because you can never trust the judges.”

Thomson was originally scheduled to fight lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, but Pettis had to pull out due to an injury. So Henderson stepped up, and this fight became a potential title shot eliminator.
