When Donald Cerrone enters the Octagon to fight Benson Henderson as an injury replacement at UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Chad Thomas Jersey . Siver on Jan. 18, there will be more on the line than just a win or loss on his record. In fact, Cerrone’s decision to fill in for Eddie Alvarez just 15 days after handing Myles Jury his first loss at UFC 182 puts everything on the line – good and bad – in his quest for a shot at the lightweight championship. I guess I could sit back like every other fighter and sit and wait. But Im not every other fighter, Cerrone said in a conference call on Tuesday. Im my own guy … Like I said, if Im going to be the champ, Ive got to beat everyone anyways, so what is sitting and waiting and holding my position do?” He’s not wrong, but his six-fight win streak meant he likely wouldn’t have to fight everybody on his way to a title shot – especially not Henderson – and some may say waiting and holding a strong position isn’t the worst decision in the world when you’re the No. 3-ranked fighter in a stacked division. The quality of the 155-pound division is already one of Cerrone’s biggest obstacles and a loss to Henderson – a man who has beaten “Cowboy” twice before – could cost him his spot in line. Right now he sits behind No. 1 contender Rafael Dos Anjos, who is scheduled to fight Anthony Pettis for the lightweight title at UFC 185 on March 14, and Khabib Nurmagomedov, who is an astounding 22-0 and eying a February return from a torn meniscus in his right knee. Coming up right behind Cerrone in the rankings are former title contender Gilbert Melendez (4), former champion Henderson (5) and knockout specialist Edson Barboza (6), which is just scratching the surface of a division loaded with top-tier talent. The best case scenario for a fighter who admits he “wouldn’t take this fight on short notice, one, if I wasn’t s--- bat loony, and two, if I didn’t think I could beat Ben,” would be to wait and train properly for a title eliminator bout against Nurmagomedov when he is healthy. The worst case scenario is he loses and the train is derailed – at least temporarily. Now, that doesn’t mean he falls 10 spots down in the rankings and becomes an afterthought in the championship discussion, but it does vault Henderson back into serious contention and takes the attention away from Cerrone’s hot streak. And Cerrone said it himself, his opponent is “one of the best out there.” Its not like Im taking a filler fight against some bottom-25 guy. This is one of the top guys, and I know that full-well going into it. Im super excited,” he said. “If you want to be the best, youve got to beat the best.” And that’s what is really at stake. If Cerrone does beat Henderson, he should be next in line for a shot at Pettis and the lightweight crown. After that, it’s all smooth sailing for the “Cowboy” – sort of. “The only problem is if I goddamn get that belt, whos going to be left to fight?” Cerrone said. “Thats what I want to know. T. J. Carrie Browns Jersey . TSN 1290s Jordan Cieciwa, Big Marv and Toby are here to give their predictions on who will leave with the belt and who will take some of the other key bouts on the card. Johny Hendricks vs. Austin Corbett Browns Jersey . -- Zach Johnson is like most players at the World Challenge, not sure whether hes still playing in 2013 or if hes in the middle of the new wraparound season that officially started in October. . -- David Freese is starting to pick up his run production, which is something the Los Angeles Angels have been waiting half a season to see.TORONTO -- Toronto defenceman T.J. Brennan thinks the Marlies are their own worst enemies. A neutral zone turnover by Marlies captain Trevor Smith led to the game-winning goal at 11:14 of the third period as Toronto fell 3-2 to the Texas Stars in Game 3 of their American Hockey Leagues Western Conference final. "I think were kind of shooting ourselves in the foot with turnovers," said Brennan. "Its a game of mistakes especially in the conference finals. Little things separate a team in a one goal game, couple mistakes we made and they capitalized." The goal came just 59 seconds after Brennan had picked up his second of the night to tie the game 2-2. Kevin Henderson and Patrik Nemeth had the other Stars goals while Cristopher Nilstorp made 20 saves. The win was the Stars second in three nights and gives the Dallas Stars affiliate a 2-1 series lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference final. Drew MacIntyre stopped 27 shots in the loss. The Marlies won their first eight games to open the playoffs. "The challenge for us is the neutral zone, we cannot turn over pucks in the neutral zone, thats where we have to be smart," said Marlies coach Steve Spott. "We have to be a team that gets pucks in deep and then hunts people down and gets it back. We simply havent done that well enough in this series." A newly formed fourth line of Kenny Ryan between Tyler Biggs and Brad Ross factored in on the games opening goal from Brennan at 9:16 of the first period. Biggs was in the Marlies lineup for the first time ssince Game 2 of the first round (April 26) replacing Jerred Smithson. E.J. Gaines Jersey. Andrew MacWilliam (upper body) made his series debut replacing Dylan Yeo on the blue-line. Wednesday was MacWilliams first game since a collision with Chicago Wolves forward Adam Cracknell in Game 3 of the second round. "I thought that line was good, I thought of all the lines, that line gave us what I was hoping to get, which was a level of physicality," Spott said of his fourth line. "They played with some urgency and some grit so I liked that line." Brennan nearly had his second of the game, and period, on a Marlies power play late in the opening frame as he wired a Spencer Abbott feed from the top of the face-off circle, but Nilstorp was there to make the save. Nemeth tied it 1-1 at 3:16 of the second period beating a screened MacIntyre five hole for his first of the playoffs. Henderson, who played for Spott with the Ontario Hockey Leagues Kitchener Rangers, gave Texas its first lead of the game at 6:59 of the third tipping home the rebound off Brett Ritchies shot for his first playoff goal. "Theyre a veteran hockey club and theyre good," said Spott. "When you look at their 12 forwards, theyre playing with a level of desperation that our 12 forwards havent found yet. Weve got a couple guys that are playing at the level that we expected." Notes: Maple Leafs great Johnny Bower dropped the puck in a ceremonial faceoff. Game 4 of the series goes Thursday with Game 5 at Ricoh Coliseum Saturday afternoon.
