Alves out, Jorge Masvidal in vs. Benson Henderson @ UFC Fight Night 79

It looks like #TeamEverlast athlete Benson Henderson has a new opponent for UFC Fight Night 79, Jorge Masvidal.

A rib injury has forced hard hitting Thiago Alves out. Masvidal was scheduled to take on Don Hyun Kim in the co-main on the same card, but was pulled to fill the main event spot.

“Gamebred” is 4-1 over his past five fights, and the only loss during the stretch came via split decision to Al Iaquinta.
