Benson Henderson makes friendly Super Bowl bet with 'Cowboy' Cerrone

According to a Jan. 22 tweet from Dave Sholler, the UFC Director of Public Relations has apparently settled the terms of the Super Bowl bet made between Washington native Benson Henderson and Denver Broncos fan "Cowboy" Donald Cerrone.

Apparently, Henderson must wear a Broncos jersey during the next UFC press tour if Denver wins at Super Bowl XLVIII.

If the Seahawks win, Cerrone will be forced to wear a Seattle jersey with Henderson's name stitched into it.

"@BensonHenderson @Cowboycerrone loser wears opposing jersey on next UFC media tour. Seahawks Henderson jersey. Broncos Cerrone jersey," Sholler tweeted.

Henderson, 30, is a big fan of the Seattle Seahawks, and Cerrone is well-known for his love of Denver Broncos football.

For that reason, the two UFC fighters decided to make a friendly wager on Super Bowl XLVIII.

For hours, the men went back-and-forth on Twitter trying to come up with a bet that would make the most sense.

UFC fans chimed in with a slew of fun suggestions that included donating money to the winner's charity of choice and walking out to the Octagon in the winner's jersey of choice.

Cerrone had an interesting idea that included a rematch with Henderson if the Broncos won the game.

Cerrone and Henderson fought twice under the WEC banner, with the latter coming out on top in both bouts.

Since the first two Henderson vs Cerrone fights ended in decisive fashion, the UFC didn't seem all that interested in a trilogy fight.

At the end of the day, Sholler's idea seemed to be the one all parties agreed upon.

Henderson is a Washington native, having grown up in Federal Way. As for Cerrone, he was born and raised in Denver, Colorado.

Both men are set to appear on the Jan. 25 UFC on Fox card in Chicago.
