Cerrone will step in for the injured Eddie Alvarez in the co-main event of a televised card in Boston. Irish featherweight Conor (The Notorious) McGregor, ranked fifth among 145-pound contenders, faces No. 10 Dennis Siver of Germany in the main event at TD Garden.
Cerrone (26-6 with one no contest) moved up to No. 3 in the lightweight rankings after his dominating decision over eighth-ranked Jury extended his winning streak to six.
The Boston fight will be the sixth for Cerrone since January 2013. And it will complete a trilogy for Cerrone and Henderson.
The first came in the WEC with Henderson winning by five-round decision in October 2009 and first-round submission April 2010.
Fifth-ranked Henderson (21-4) is coming off a first-round TKO at the hands of Rafael dos Anjos.
