He may not have an opponent yet but now know "The Answer" to when we'll see Frankie Edgar inside the Octagon again.

According to a report from MMAWeekly.com, Edgar will represent one half of the main event when the UFC returns to Japan on Feb. 26, 2012 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

But against who?

While nothing is set in stone, obviously, the most likely candidate would be the winner of the Clay Guida vs. Ben Henderson fight going down this Sat., Nov. 12, 2011, at UFC on Fox 1 in Anaheim, California.

The reality of the situation is that there simply aren't any other worthy contenders, barring injury of course. Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez has a fight scheduled for Dec. 17 and a two month turnaround is likely too little time for "El Nino" to be adequately prepared to face off against one of the best in the world.

That leaves Guida or Henderson.

Edgar was last in action this past Oct. 8 at UFC 136 in Houston, Texas, where he knocked out Gray Maynard to bring an end to their historic trilogy. Now, after a short break, it's on to the next one in the "Land of the Rising Sun."

Which fight would you rather see, Maniacs? Edgar vs. Guida or Edgar vs. Henderson?
