Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Ben Henderson is now 2-0 at his new home in the welterweight division, recently dispatching Jorge Masvidal at the UFC Fight Night 79 mixed martial arts (MMA) event in Seoul, South Korea.

As a result, “Smooth” debuts at No. 15 in the promotion’s latest official rankings update, one that also sent him tumbling down the lightweight ladder. As for the other fighters competing last weekend on UFC Fight Pass, like the No. 7-ranked Dong Hyun Kim, there was zero movement on the charts.
