WEC 43: Cerrone vs. Henderson postponed

The WEC confirmed Monday that it has rescheduled its Sept. 2 event due to an undisclosed injury to main event fighter Benson Henderson. Henderson was supposed to fight Donald Cerrone for the WEC's vacant interim lightweight title.

Henderson earned the opportunity to take on Cerrone by defeating two WEC lightweights that fight out of Las Vegas this year. He defeated Anthony Njokuani in his WEC debut in January by a second round submission. In April, he posted another impressive victory over highly regarded former collegiate wrestler Shane Roller.

The fight has been rescheduled for Oct. 10. It is unknown whether or not the event will stay in the scheduled city of Youngstown, Ohio, a state that the WEC was set to visit for the first time.

The event is still scheduled to be broadcast live over the VERSUS network.
