Ever since the end of UFC on Fox 7, we were wondering when Benson Henderson would step into the octagon. We have a date and a dance partner for the champion.
It was announced on UFC Tonight on Tuesday that UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson will be squaring off against number one contender T.J.Grant in the main event of UFC 164.
That event will be taking place on Saturday, August 31 from Bradley Center in Milwaukee.
Grant (21-5 MMA, 8-3 UFC) became the number one contender when he defeated Grey Maynard by TKO last month at UFC 160.
Henderson (19-2 MMA, 7-0 UFC) made the third defense of his lightweight title when he defeated former Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez in April at UFC on Fox 7.
