Going three rounds against each other as the co-main event on the Conor McGregor vs Denis Siver fight card in Boston last month has not dented the friendship between Donald Cerrone and Benson Henderson. The two were part of probably the least confrontational weigh-in staredown ever ahead of the fight.
Cerrone won the bout by unanimous decision, though a majority of media outlets had scored the fight in favour of Henderson.
Perhaps feeling a little guilty at the victory, Cerrone got his opponent, who is a Seattle Seahawks fan, Super Bowl tickets for last night's big game in Phoenix.

Cerrone is almost universally loved by MMA fans due to his Gung-ho attitude to the sport. He took the Henderson fight as a late replacement for Eddie Alvarez meaning he fought twice in the space of just over a fortnight.
