Benson Henderson (9-1 MMA, 2-0 WEC) is not the biggest star in the WEC.
But with back-to-back impressive wins in the organization, Henderson has earned himself a shot at the WEC's interim lightweight title, and "Smooth" promises to make the most of his chance when he faces Donald Cerrone (10-1 MMA, 3-1 WEC) in the main event of Saturday's WEC 43 event in San Antonio, Texas.
"It's a huge opportunity," Henderson said on a recent media call promoting the Versus-broadcast event. "I'm really appreciative of it, and it's a big stage to showcase something I've been working on for a long time and to show people hey, this is what I do."Link
