Ben Henderson claims UFC never told him Eddie Alvarez was hurt, booked Donald Cerrone without asking
"I didn't hear about it from the UFC at all. No one officially called me or called my manager or my coach. No one consulted with us or asked us if we would take the fight first. It was actually Cowboy who texted me first saying 'Hey bro, nothing personal, it's just business, nothing but love,' and I said 'Oh, cool'. I had no idea what he was talking about. I go on Twitter and look it up and go 'Oh, I see, Eddie Alvarez just got hurt.' So I said 'See you in Boston in a couple of weeks.' "

Brad Tavares: Gegard Mousasi or C.B. Dollaway sounds good as next opponent
UFC middleweight Brad Tavares is taking a different approach to his career after breaking a two-fight losing streak with a decision win over Nate Marquardt earlier this month at UFC 182. “A few fights ago, I just wanted to keep climbing,” Tavares (13-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) told MMAjunkie Radio. “I wanted big names and big fights. But right now, I’m just excited that I get to do this. “There’s a lot of movement going on at middleweight; there’s a lot of key matchups like (Vitor Belfort vs. Chris Weidman) and (Lyoto Machida vs. Luke Rockhold). So when these guys fight, and we see where everything falls, wherever the UFC wants me to fight, I’ll fight.”
