This will be the most highly-ranked fighter to do so if he decides to do it.

Per Dave Meltzer :
Benson Henderson is going to let his contract expire and test free agency. I believe his 11/28 fight in Seoul, South Korea, will be the last or is nearing the end of his contract. Thiago Alves pulled out of that main event with a broken rib and Henderson will now be facing Jorge Masvidal to headline. Because Henderson is partially Korean (his mother is Korean), he was the key to the main event.
Bellator would obviously be interested in adding Henderson to their lightweight division.

I think Japanese fans would warm up pretty easily to bendo since he is a classy guy who upholds the values of martial arts teachings.

Bellator or any promotion would love to have him,but he probably looking for leverage in renegotiating his contract.

No doubt about it...LOL.  Yeah, Bellator would be a good spot for him.  Brooks has been putting me to sleep so I wouldn't mind seeing him against Bendo.

If he does i wonder who he will sign with ? bleacher report is saying the ufc market dominance is showing a small crack i agree with hamilcar im a huge bendo fan too im a fan of the technical fighters don't get me wrong everyone loves a brawl .Me i would like to see him in one fc vs ben askren why not i bet victor would set that fight up both askren and benson are bout the same size and probably walk around the near same weight too .

I would say more than just a small crack. They got guys like Phil Davis and Josh Thomson turning down deals in exchange for signing with Bellator and Ben Henderson claiming to want to explore the free market. Bibiano Fernandes was signed by ONE years ago when everyone thought it was a done deal with him going to the UFC. In the past, guys would sign with no hesitation. None would consider working elsewhere or testing the waters. Other companies are doing good and it seems not as many fighters are as giddy to go to the UFC as in the past.

That is a good offer. Was hoping to see him in RIZIN or Bellator though.

Benson is half Korean so a lucrative offer from Road is expected, all we can do is speculate at this point

Yeah, I would rather see him in one of those orgs since ROAD FC lacks the talent.
