Benson Henderson vs. Roger Huerta New Bellator 196 Headliner Following Injury
Following an injury to original headliner James Gallagher, Benson Henderson vs. Roger Huerta has been elevated to the Bellator 196 main event.
Gallagher, a fast-rising undefeated Irish featherweight fighting out of Conor McGregor’s Straight Blast Gym, was originally slated to headline Bellator 196 opposite undefeated Hungarian Adam Borics on April 6 at Budapest Sports Arena in Budapest, Hungary.
With Gallagher vs. Borics canceled, Bellator slotted in a match-up between former UFC and WEC lightweight champion Benson Henderson and veteran Roger Huerta into the Bellator 196 headlining spot.
