Confirmed: Ben Henderson to Challenge Frankie Edgar for Lightweight Title at UFC Japan


Confirmation comes at the 12:35 mark of the press conference highlights. Props to MMAFighting.com for the video.

Leading up to last night’s historic UFC on Fox broadcast, there were rumors that the winner of Benson Henderson vs. Clay Guida would be fighting Frankie Edgar in Japan for the UFC lightweight title. As you know, Ben Henderson went on to defeat Clay Guida by unanimous decision in a Fight of the Night winning performance. Now, it has been confirmed that Ben Henderson vs. Frankie Edgar will be the main event of the UFC’s return to Japan.

Since losing to Anthony Pettis back at WEC 53, Ben Henderson has gone 3-0 in the UFC. Even though all three victories have come by unanimous decision, Henderson has proven that he is incapable of being involved in a boring fight. Likewise, Frankie Edgar is coming off of a come from behind fourth round TKO over Gray Maynard at UFC 136 in October.   

UFC Japan is set to take place on February 26, 2012. In order to accommodate the fact that no one in North America wants to wake up at 9 AM for a PPV card, the show is set to start at 10 AM in Japan. Waking up before noon on a weekend? That’s a level of dedication that our Gaijin asses just can’t understand.

We’ll keep you posted as more fights get confirmed for this card.

ALL monies on Henderson. Edgar will have leave the Jersey Shore, and return home a small man with no belt. We might even get a chance to see Edgar vs Maynard for the 4th or 5th time.

10 bucks J3T's 15year old girlfriends pregnant and all the other 15year olds at MacDonalds where he works are scarded to screw him so he has massive blue balls, or his gerbles ran away and he has to act like a dick.

How many times do you jerk off to a picture of your sister J3T?

I bet you have lots of people close to you cause your just such a gerble loving, sister jacking off great guy!

Aren't ya????

Are you going to beat up a five year old now?

Karma vs. J3T... Come on CP, make it happen. We can put it on the Jimbo vs. Kimbo card.

Bad troll is bad making stories up.

I think Frankie wins it and makes it look easy. Controls the distance, uses his footwork, and picks Henderson apart standing. Just like Pettis, less flashy though.

'More like you took the video down after everyone clowned on you, everyone has already said it in previous threads so leave me alone you mohawked cunt.' Yeah seriously Karma leave J3t alone, why do you have to always pick at his comments for no reason other than jealousy?

I never got knocked out dumbass, You can't troll something that is inherently untrue. Baddie...
J3t- November 13, 2011 at 6:10 pm
Henderson wasn't fucking around with Pettis he just got caught with an insane kick dumbass. Is that your excuse for the fight you got knocked out in Karma?

I think betting against Frankie Edgar is just risky business and I think Frankie has proven himself a very game champion. Benson Henderson seems like a different kind of animal in my book, he reminds me of a few other guys who were hungry once. Bendo doesn't fuck around he did that once against Showtime I wouldn't expect him or his god to be slacking off for this UFC title shot.

May sound crazy, but I don't think Edgar is going to be able to deal with Benson's speed. I think Benson will control the ring and catch up to Frankie where guys like Gray(not including first rounds of fights 2 and 3) and BJ couldn't.
It was nice to see Clay Guida get Clay Guida'd in the grappling department last night.

Agreed!

This will be a fantastic fight! I was hoping Ben would win because I wanted to see Edgar tested against another huge LW, but one who fights smart and has a gas tank equal to Edgar's. This is a tough fight to call.
