Donald Cerrone vs Ben Henderson 3 full fight video highlights from UFC 'Boston' last night

In the span of six months several years ago, Donald Cerrone lost two fight to Ben Henderson under the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) banner.

"Cowboy" had to wait almost five years to exact revenge and he only had two weeks to prepare for his UFC Fight Night 59 co-main event match against "Smooth" at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

It was well worth the wait ... and super speedy turnaround.

Cerrone escaped "Bean Town" with a unanimous decision win, which numerous fight fans are claiming is controversial. Henderson put up a great fight, and maybe could have gotten the nod, but his gameplan was a bit bizarre. The former champion seemed content to attack Cerrone's legs with push and sidekicks, which did little other than irritate Cerrone.

Henderson did have several bright spots, including landing several nice shots, one that even appeared to buckle the top-ranked contender. But, it wasn't enough, as Cerrone's aggression, pace and power appeared to win him a very competitive, and important, bout.
