As you’ve likely heard, Donald Cerrone will fight for the second time in a two week span at UFC Fight Night 59, when he battles Benson Henderson. The lightweight agreed to the short notice scrap, after he decisioned Myles Jury at UFC 182.
That bout took place on January 3rd, and Henderson-Cerrone will go down on January 18th. Yes, Cerrone is one extremely tough and game dude.
The upcoming fight will not mark the first time Henderson and Cerrone have met, however, as the two fought twice before under the WEC banner. Their first meeting went down in October, 2009, and if you never saw the memorable battle, that’s a shame. Thankfully the UFC has posted the fight leading up to UFC FN 59.
Henderson went on to win that fight by decision, and in the rematch several months later, he caught Cerrone with a first round, guillotine choke.
