Dominick Cruz isn’t the only fighter to be recognized by a race track, as UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson has received a sponsorship from Phoenix International Raceway.
The track, which hosts NASCAR races, will be on Henderson’s shorts when he defends his title August 31 against Anthony Pettis at UFC 164: Henderson vs. Pettis.
Henderson, a Phoenix resident, will be the honorary pace car driver for the November 10 event at the track.
“I am so happy and honored to be part of the PIR family,” he said. “Phoenix has become home for me, and I am so excited to be part of such a great event in my adopted hometown.”
