Just a week out from the proposed Sept. 2 WEC “Cerrone vs Henderson”, the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) announced that it has postponed the card to Oct. 10th. at a venue to be announced later.
An injury to main event fighter Ben Henderson forced the postponement of the event.
Dave Meltzer: â€œI think that what happened is is that um they that they donâ€™t want to do that show on September 2nd if DirecTV pulls them on September 1st. So, theyâ€™re giving them so theyâ€™re pulling the show so they have, because it makes no sense for WEC, you know, I â€¦ itâ€™s how I read it. I mean maybe Ben Henderson really is hurt, but the thing thatâ€™s really strange me to is um itâ€™s like if he really was hurt, they would just put, why donâ€™t they just do the match on the next show? I mean, theyâ€™ve never postponed an actual show over someone being injured, they always have a replacement.â€
