Moments earlier, he was looking down at his opponent, who had fallen limp to the ground after taking a punch straight to the head. James "Binky" Jones had to make sure that Biff Walizer, his opponent that October 2013 day in Shogun Fights IX, was done for good. He stared for a couple more seconds, then threw his arms up and ran to climb the cage and flex for his fans. "The Lord has blessed me, man," Jones, of Baltimore, said Thursday.

In the main event at UFC 150, lightweight champion Benson Henderson won by split decision over former champion Frankie Edgar to retain his title at the Pepsi Center in Denver.   The bout was so close that both fighters asked UFC president Dana White after the fight for his opinion on who won. He told both fighters, “I'm not a judge, bro.”   White has been one of the sport's harshest critics toward the judges and referees. He has said in the past, “Judging and the reffing is so bad in mixed martial arts, it drives me crazy.”   Both fighters were so evenly matched that at times the bout became boring.

NORFOLK, Va. - Toddlers clapped for Christ. Churchgoers stood and shouted for the Lord. Choir members swayed to piano and drum-driven melodies. And Leetra Bogues just sat in her pew, dazed. In the midst of holy commotion at Mount Carmel Baptist Church in Norfolk, her life was about to be transformed. Then she heard the voice: "Are we ready to bless the bowl?" asked Bishop C. Bernie Russell Jr. Bogues' leg started shaking. She couldn't take her eyes off Russell. Couldn't focus on the faces of the people who flocked to the front carrying checks and cash.

Despite appearances, Eddie Van Kirk won the fight and he was looking for a ride to the hospital to get his eyebrows reattached to his forehead.Across the hall, while handlers were moaning about the split-decision loss, Edwin Curet was saying with a shrug, "I'm used to getting jobbed . . . and I see I have no underwear to wear out of here."Lou Benson, who had been a knockout victim at the hand of Jason Walker seemingly days before, wondered what he was going to say to his wife: "I promised her I'd quit if I lost, but I don't know."
