A report from MMA Sucka says that Joseph Benavidez is set to face Henry Cejudo at UFC 191 in Las Vegas.

Don't get why they would make this fight...ruin a possible new challenger for MM and Benavidez doesn't deserve a 3rd fight with MM being 0-2 against him and getting KTFO'd the last time

This is rushing it for Henry. Joseph beats him up.

Might be a bit premature for cejudo but this is still a fight I want to see. Great match up. Interested to see what happens if it goes to the ground.

I tend to agree. Henry might take a setback here and then they're out of opponents for Mighty Mouse. I don't need to see Joey B fight Mighty Mouse again. At least not anytime soon.

I can't recall a time in the ufc where a fighter who has lost twice to another fighter has gotten a third chance to fight them again.

Wait bj vs Frankie I think. But besides that I can't think of another ?

The UFC let Tito Ortiz TKO Ken Shamrock three times! I guess Wanderlei-Rampage 3 wouldn't necessarily count since the first two were in Pride, but in that case Rampage had also been knocked out twice by his opponent going in to that fight. I can't recall any others at the moment....

As for this fight though, I agree this is early. I would have loved to see Cejudo welcome back Bagautinov or something like that, since McCall and Ortiz are booked. But hey, whatever keeps the divisions moving, I suppose!

I have no problem with J B fighting MM 14 more times. No reason not to want to see the best guys go at it for me. Why would I want a worse fight instead?

Because styles make fights for the most part.

Mighy Mouse is probably going to fight the same 4 guys for the next 5 years anyways so I don't care who he fights next.
