Jorge Masvidal is set to fight Benson Henderson in a welterweight bout at UFC Fight Night 78. He explained in a recent interview that this fight was ultimately too good to pass up.
“You’re going to see fireworks. If you know my career and you’ve seen me fight, I want to try to fight and hurt the dude. I’m going to try and hurt him, from beginning to end. It just depends. Hopefully, Ben doesn’t come to run and you know, point fight? Sometimes he’ll do enough to win the fight and just win the rounds. I’m hoping he comes in to hurt me and I’m going to return the favor,” he said.
Masvidal (29-9) is 4-1 in his last five fights and currently riding a one-fight winning streak.
UFC Fight Night 79 takes place on November 28, 2015, at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul, South Korea. The entire event will air on UFC Fight Pass.
