Bellator fighter and former UFC champion Benson Henderson will go up against Combat Jiu-Jitsu lightweight champion Vagner Rocha at Polaris 8.
The promotion made the announcement earlier today on social media:

Both competitors have competitive backgrounds that include both jiu-jitsu and MMA. Henderson previously defeated AJ Agazarm at Polaris 6, and Rocha’s most recent match saw him win over Augusto Mendes at Fight 2 Win 89. Their match will be on the same card as the much-hyped main event between Craig Jones and Keenan Cornelius.
Polaris 8 will take place on Sunday, December 9 at Ice Arena Wales.
