Benson Henderson gets title shot at Bellator 153

Bellator 153

Bellator 153 takes place April 22 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut and its main card airs on Spike TV.  It is also the night that former UFC lightweight champion and newly signed Bellator MMA competitor, Benson Henderson will make his first appearance.

Its not just any appearance however.  Henderson will fight for the Bellator MMA welterweight title against champion Andrey Koreshkov.

Koreshkov has not yet defended his belt since winning it this past July with a decision over former champion, Douglas Lima.

The Russian is currently on a five-fight winning streak with his sole Bellator loss coming in 2013 against now-former camp Ben Askren, who later vacated the belt to sign with ONE Championship.
