Donald Cerrone (pictured) and Benson Henderson squared off for a third time when they collided at UFC Fight Night 59. Despite being down 0-2 to Henderson, Cerrone didn’t hesitate in accepting a trilogy even though he won just 15 days ago at UFC 182.
For the most part, the lightweights engaged in a 15 minute sparring session. When the dust settled on their scrap, Cerrone wound up taking a (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) unanimous decision victory to the surprise of many.
UFC president Dana White thought Henderson won 29-28.
UFC Fight Night 59 took place Sunday inside TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.
