After securing a pair of wins over Donald Cerrone under the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) banner, Ben Henderson will fight "Cowboy" for the third time in his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) career when they hook 'em up in the UFC Fight Night 59 co-main event on FOX Sports 1, which goes down later tonight (Sun., Jan. 18, 2015) inside TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.
And for a pair of guys who keep fighting, they sure do like each other.
Cerrone may be coming into this battle on just two weeks notice, but that won't stop him and "Smooth" from delivering what could be "Fight of the Night" in "Beantown." Both combatants are considered to be at the top of the 155-pound food chain, and it will be interesting to see what adjustments each fighter has made since their last go-round.
Full preview below.
