Henderson, Cerrone Would Be Excited to Test Themselves in UFC
Although there is no time frame for it, it’s a possibility that the members of the WEC’s lightweight roster could find themselves in the UFC.
“I think eventually what we do is, we’re going to continue to add to lighter weights, and you’ll end up seeing these (WEC) guys go into the UFC, the 155 pounders,” UFC president Dana White said Monday in an interview with Sergio Non of USA TODAY.
It’s likely that a move is very far down the line as the UFC has yet to even implement the long talked about 125-pound division. But if the merge were to happen today, the two big moves would be the champion Ben Henderson and current No. 1 contender Donald Cerrone.
