Jorge Masvidal Answers Benson Henderson’s Challenge

ufc 186

Jorge Masvidal, fresh off a controversial decision loss to Al Iaquinta this past weekend, is willing to step up to welterweight and take on fellow 155-pounder Benson Henderson.

Henderson posted on Twitter Tuesday that, if the UFC needed someone to replace Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 186 later this month, he’d be willing.

It appears Masvidal is as well:

Henderson and Masvidal were to meet at UFC Fight Night 63, but Henderson opted to take on Brandon Thatch instead. Masvidal lost to Iaquinta at the card.

The former UFC lightweight champion responded, saying he couldn’t cut to 155 on that short of notice, but Masvidal answered with “170 sounds good to me.”
