Fans in attendance will have the chance to win tickets to the Dec. 16 event at Jobing.com Arena, as well as cool WEC merchandise. In addition, local radio station 93.3 KDKB will be participating with on-site promotions.

“It’s always been a dream of mine to fight in front of my hometown fans in Glendale,” Henderson said. “The city is such a great place and I’m truly blessed and honored that they’ve put together this rally.”
