UFC on FOX: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos," which emanated from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2011, is officially in the books.
So too, is the hunt for a new lightweight title contender.
That's because Ben Henderson staked his claim as division number one contender with a three round unanimous decision win over Clay Guida on the preliminary portion of the promotion's network television debut.
UFC matchmaker Joe Silva, during the UFC on FOX post-fight wrap-up show on Fuel TV, confirmed that "Smooth" will fight reigning champion Frankie Edgar when the UFC returns to Japan at the Saitama Super Arena on Feb. 25, 2012.
Henderson (15-2) sawed his way through "The Carpenter" to win his third straight bout since transitioning to the UFC and while they've all been won on the judge's scorecards, his performances have been impressive.
They've also been against some of the best lightweights in the division.
How about it Maniacs, early predictions for this 155-pound title fight? Can Henderson find "The Answer" to beating Edgar and reclaim the lightweight belt -- something he held back in the WEC?
