Donald Cerrone wanted to fight again as quickly as possible after his win over Myles Jury this past weekend at UFC 182. Two weeks seems pretty quick.
UFC President Dana White announced on Instagram that Cerrone (26-6 MMA, 13-3 UFC) has agreed to step in for an injured Eddie Alvarez (25-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) and will now meet Benson Henderson (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) at next week’s UFC Fight Night 59 event.
UFC Fight Night 59 takes place on Jan. 18, 2015 at Boston’s TD Garden. The four-fight main card airs on FOX Sports 1 (10 p.m. ET) following six preliminary bouts on the same channel (7 p.m. ET) and two that stream on UFC Fight Pass (6 p.m. ET).
