Cerrone vs. Henderson In Boston January 18

Tuesday January 5, 2015- At UFC 182 Donald Cerrone was really pushing for another fight at the post fight press conference and stated that he wanted a fight as soon as possible after his win over Myles Jury. Cerrone will step in for the injured Eddie Alvarez on January 18 in Boston. “Cowboy” will face Benson Henderson. UFC President Dana White announced the bout on Twitter Monday evening. Cerrone now with six straight wins is getting closer to a shot at the UFC lightweight title.

Back in October of 2009, Henderson won a five-round battle against Cerrone and that fight could have been one of the best we have seen in WEC history. Henderson won by submission in their rematch in April of 2010, but now the two will face off in January and this fight will be a third time they meet in the cage. Expect for an exciting fight.
