Scott Coker Bellator Says Officials Have Reached Out To Benson Henderson

Bellator MMA President, Scott Coker revealed this week that Bellator has reached out to former UFC lightweight champion, Benson Henderson in an attempt to determine whether or not the man is currently a free agent.

Coker, speaking via sources said:

“I think that my guys have reached out just to see if he is actually a free agent because sometimes they have an exclusive negotiation period. So we’re going to wait and see wait his contract status is. If he is free, then yeah we’re going to start talking to him. We’d love to have a fighter like Henderson on the roster, but we’re gonna do it the right way and make sure that he’s free to actually have a conversation.”
